Heamoglobin is a protein found in the red blood cells, they are responsible for carrying oxygen around the body and also carries carbon dioxide out of the cells and into the lungs. Having low heamoglobin can make it difficult for the body to perform these functions. Here are natural ways to increase heamoglobin One of the most common cause of low heamoglobin levels is Iron deficiency. Hence, doctors recommend iron rich foods like green leafy vegetables like spinach, beetroot, apple, pomegranate, watermelon, prunes, pumpkin seeds, dates, almonds, raisins, amla and jaggery Increase folate intake which is a type of vitamin B that plays an essential part in heamoglobin production. Sources of folate include, spinach, avocado, kidney beans Eat foods rich in vitamin C such as oranges, lemon, strawberries, papaya, bell peppers, broccoli, grapefruit and tomatoes. Avoid eating foods that can block your body’s ability to absorb iron, especially coffee, tea, cola drinks, wine, beer Excersing is highly recommended, because when you exercise your body produces more heamoglobin to meet the increasing demand for oxygen throughout the body.
