Iron is an essential component of proteins that transport oxygen throughout the body. It is also essential for normal cell growth.

A deficiency of iron limits oxygen that gets to your cells, resulting in fatigue, feeling weak, inability to concentrate, feeling cold, skin disorders, and decreased immunity.

Where to get it –

Almonds, beans, beets, chicken, dark greens, eggs, fish, peanut butter, pork, red meat, whole grains

Warning – Do not take more than 25 milligrams a day unless under direct supervision of a doctor. 10 milligrams is the recommended dose, only for these needing supplementation. Too much iron can be toxic. Black stools are a sign that you are getting too much iron.
