Iron deficiency

Updated: Sep 3, 2023

At the end of the day we can feel depleted, the tank is empty. After a good night's sleep we should bounce and repeat serving with love each day, however we can find ourselves running on reserve and in the red. Exhausted, hair loss, dizziness,breathlessness, cracked and pale skin, mouth ulcers, cold hands and feet, even itchy skin and twitches.

It's more common than you think with inadequate diet intake, child bearing needs, poor absorption from medications and conditions like coeliac or inflammatory bowel diseases, blood loss due to menstruation, hemorrhage or gut causes like stomach or colorectal cancer.

Nutrition is the building blocks of your energy source that powers your metabolism, so it is a great starting point! The 3 key areas of food you need to consider are consuming a balance of nutrients in the right quantity to be energy efficient? Aim for 18mg of iron rich foods that include dark red meats (100g beef has 5.5mg, 30%), nuts, salmon, with dried apricots (1 cup 26% DV). Then, it's essential to assess the quality and source of the nutrients available to be readily absorbed within the gut. Look at storage methods and cooking processes, including the matter of natural or synthetic sources as in fortified cereals. If you choose the fortified cereals rich in additional iron are you really getting the best form of essential nutrients?!

Processed food sources lose value and essential nutrients in the preparation and storage phases. So consuming a food source as close to its natural state is the number one choice at the purchasing end of gathering the ingredients. Vote with your dollar at the marketplace as marketing companies care about your dollar and not about your health score.

Number 2, are your essential nutrients within the daily recommended window. This is only a guide for the masses, meaning its important to identify your personal set point, do you feel better at the high end or lower to sustain your daily activity. Essential vitamins and minerals are consumed daily, we are active daily, so it makes sense to top up your tank with natural goodness.

Well done if you have found your personal sweet spot! An energy balance that feels, looks and activates your energy that can be repeated…

However we are human with human dysfunctions and disorders like acute and chronic conditions that need a little attention to drive the metabolic process, manage the extra daily load. Emotional, nutrition and biological are all factors that impact your output system, and require a close eye to restore a balance.
