Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired?
Well, it could be you’re among the 30 percent of the world’s population who suffers from anemia. If so, our Anemia Meal Plans may just be your meal ticket back to good health.
While anemia comes in a variety of forms, the most common is caused by a dietary deficiency of iron. Because iron is needed to make hemoglobin, a key molecule in red blood cells that transports oxygen throughout the body, less hemoglobin is produced and the body’s cells end up getting less oxygen.
Symptoms of iron deficiency anemia typically appear slowly and include weakness and fatigue. Some types of anemia can even be life threatening if undiagnosed. Since less oxygen is transported through the body, the heart pumps faster to recirculate blood to make up for the deficiency and that can lead to severe, even fatal, damage to the heart. And a lack of oxygen can seriously harm other organs as well.

Not only is iron important for hemoglobin production, it is an integral part of many enzymes and used in cell functions throughout the body, including digestion.
