Ugu juice: Blend a bunch of ugu with 1cup of Orange juice , 1 cup water. Sieve and drink a cup morning and night. Remember to wash your vegetables properly before blending. (This juice is readily absorbed into the system due to the presence of Vitamin C in Orange which increases rate of absorption of iron from the vegetable.)
Beetroot juice: Wash, dice and blend 1 medium size beetroot with1 cup water, 2 tbsp lemon juice or 1tbsp lime, 1tsp grated ginger. Sieve and drink as above. Beetroot contains iron, folate and vitamins to quickly boost blood supply. N.b: If bp is low already, please don’t take beetroot.
Beef liver: Now this is the best source of readily absorbed iron. Animal sources of iron are better absorbed by the body than plant sources. This doesn’t rule out the efficacy of plant sources of vitamins and iron.
For a very quick fix, Season and cook diced liver and fish, add 2-3cups of vegetable of choice, simmer for 3minutes. Food is ready.
Other sources of iron to combat anaemia include:
Lean beef Seafood Chicken Vitamin C rich foods and vegetables.
Also note that coffee and green or black tea reduces the absorption of iron from meals.
