The oxygen that is needed to keep cells alive is carried by a cell in the blood called a red blood cell (RBC).

Our red blood cells do this job by a protein called hemoglobin to which oxygen binds. Many different problems, like thalassemia have been found that cause anemia by making abnormal hemoglobin.

Any problems that affect the quality and quantity of our red blood cells obviously will disrupt the process of oxygen delivery to the body’s cells and generally are called anemia.


Causes of anemia?

Some anemias cause a decrease in the number of red blood cells, and some anemias occurred because of problems with the structure of the red blood cells.

Again, the human body absorbs heme iron much better than non-heme iron.


Calcium and iron:

Do not take high-calcium compounds with iron sources. When iron and calcium enter the body at the same time, more calcium will be absorbed than iron.


Phytate and iron:

Avoid consuming of phytates with animal sources of heme iron at the same time. Walnuts, soy, almonds, sesame and whole grains greatly reduce animal iron absorption.


Polyphenol and iron:

Polyphenols are found in cocoa, coffee, apples and raspberries. These compounds reduce the absorption of heme iron.


Oxalate and iron:

Oxalate-containing compounds, such as traditional tea, inhibit the absorption of heme iron.

It is best to avoid consuming these substances with any heme containing foods among two hours before and after.


Moringa plant:

One of the oldest remedies for anemia is the leaves of the plant (Moringa), which is rich in non-heme iron, vitamins C and A.
