Best Foods for Iron

List Criteria: Vote for the best iron rich foods

List of the best foods for iron. One of the best nutrients for the human body is iron, partly due to the iron content in your blood. The hemoglobin in your red blood cells is comprised partially of iron which helps carry oxygen throughout the body. Without enough iron content in the body, you can become anemic which can lead to fatigue and a poor immune system. Other symptoms of iron deficiency are shortness of breath, cold hands and feet, fast heartbeat, brittle nails, hair loss, and difficulty swallowing. If pregnant women, those with kidney disease, people who work out, and those with gastrointestinal disorders don’t have enough iron it could lead to worse health problems.

 

Iron supplements can sometimes have negative side effects including upset stomach, vomiting, constipation, and diarrhea. However, by changing up your diet to include iron-rich foods, you can ensure you get the iron you need without the negative side effects.
