Women often experience low iron levels as a result of heavy and irregular bleeding. When the body does not get enough iron, our blood cells are unable to transport enough oxygen throughout. This leaves our bodies fatigued and lacking the strength and energy to function properly.
The best way to prevent and correct iron deficiencies is by eating foods and herbs abundant in iron and vitamin C.
Here are some symptoms you may have if you are anemic.
Some common signs of iron-deficient anemia include:

A cup of tea a day can gradually help your symptoms improve. Replenishing iron in the system is especially important while you are menstruating so I recommend taking these herbs during your cycle.
Add more Vitamin C to your diet
Make sure you are getting a lot of Vitamin C. Vitamin C helps your body absorb iron. Our Baobab Powder is great for this because of its abundance of Vitamin C. A single tablespoon of our Baobab Powder contains the same amount of vitamin C that can be found in 100 oranges. I recommend this to anyone looking to increase their vitamin C levels.
Iron is vital to maintaining good energy levels, organ function, and oxygen levels. Make sure you are getting enough iron and supporting vitamins and minerals to prevent fatigue and strengthen the blood.
