Iron For Bloody Strong Health

There’s blood inside our body.

And there are two types of blood cells: red blood cell and white blood cell.

I’m going to talk about red blood cells and this red one is the one that carries oxygen to all our body.

What our body need is iron. Iron helps to build hemoglobin in our red blood cells. Hemoglobin is a biomolecule that binds oxygen to the red blood cell.

Lack of iron in our body result insuffiecient supply of oxygen. You will feel fatigue, headaches and shortness of breath.

Drink juices such as oranges and grapefruits as they have much vitamin C. Vitamin C doubles the amount of iron absorbtion in our body.

However, do avoid drinking tea or coffee as they are known to reduce the amounth of iron absorbed by our body.
