Increasing Iron Absorption: The Definitive Guide

Updated September 16, 2016 - 0Comments

Increasing iron absorption is the most challenging part of treating iron deficiency. You’ll need to learn: how to naturally increase iron levels, design recipes, know the enhancers of iron absorption, inhibitors, when to take supplements … if you want to have normal iron levels.

If you want to increase your iron levels (and who doesn’t on these cold days) then this guide is a must.

Treating Iron Deficiency: Now and Then

Before the internet, the only knowledge we had on iron deficiency came from our doctors, and the only solution we often had was to take supplements. Fortunately, those days are past.

Make no mistake: Visiting your doctor is always recommended. And taking iron supplements is always effective. But the results are extremely short lived.

Patients that do well today, and live happy with their chronic iron deficiency (or anemia) dedicate a big chunk of their time on reading and researching.


Because our bodies, as well as the chemical reactions in us are complex.
And having normal iron levels in your blood once again, is not easy.

But once you understand how your body works, the rewards are huge: you’ll be able to maintain normal iron levels despite your chronic iron deficiency. Which means less anxiety, headaches and more energy in your body.
