  • “Anemia is a condition in which you don’t have enough healthy red blood cells to carry adequate oxygen to your tissues,” states Mayo Clinic. Having anemia can make you feel very fatigued. There are many different types of anemia, with different causes.
  • The most common cause is loss of blood.
  • Make sure to see your doctor or health practitioner if you suspect anemia, as it may be the symptom of an underlying condition.
  • You may be able to prevent some types of anemia by eating a healthy, varied diet,” adds Mayo Clinic.
  • Avocados:
  • These amazing fruits are a great source of copper and iron, which aid in red blood cell regeneration. Eating an avocado a day  is recommended.
  • Bananas:
  • Anemia is often caused by iron deficiency, meaning a lack of iron in the diet. Bananas are high in iron, and stimulate the production of hemoglobin, which transports oxygen throughout the body.
  • Beets:
  • They are excellent foods for anemia. Beets increase oxygen uptake in red blood cells.
  • Chia seeds:
  • Like many of the foods on this list, chia seeds are nutritional powerhouses and are packed with iron.
  • Dandelion root:
  • It is an anemia super food because of its high iron content and its ability to help the body absorb iron from other food sources.
  • Spinach:
  • Popeye was right and spinach is a champion when it comes to fighting anemia. It is a great source of iron, providing 5% of the recommended daily value in each cup.
  • Blend the following ingredients:
  • 2 cups of spinach
  • 1 tablespoon of dandelion root powder
  • 2 beets
  • 1 banana
  • 1 tablespoon of chia seeds
  • 1 avocado
  • Make sure ingredients are organic.
  • Enjoy!
