Do you think that your nutritional diet is perfect and that you are receiving all the necessary vitamins and irons? But one morning, you wake up and feel dizzy, with a lack of concentration, headache and your face is pale… you make the necessary medical tests and you discover that you have a deficiency in irons. How should you compensate this deficiency?

Red meat is considered the richest nutrient in iron that is easy to absorb, especially that your body needs 16mg of iron every day.  

If you are one of those who do not like red meat, you can eat some kinds of vegetables to compensate the essential needed iron, such as spinach or whole cereals.

You can also have the necessary quantity of irons by eating seafood such as mussels, and you can also eat eggs. To ease the absorption process, you can eat with these kinds of food, nutrients rich with vitamin C, such as tomatoes, broccoli, parsley, lemon and kiwi.
