How can we help the maximum absorption of iron in the body?

Iron is one of the minerals that are effective in the health of the body. Therefore, absorption of sufficient amount of iron in the body is very important. According to forecasts, about 1.2 billion people in the world are facing the problem of iron deficiency.

Lack of iron in the body can cause problems such as feeling tired, weak, pale skin and shortness of breath. One of the ways to compensate for the lack of iron in the body is to use iron supplements, which can largely solve the problem of iron deficiency. In the following, we discuss the methods of maximum absorption of iron in the body.

One of the most common methods is taking iron supplements on an empty stomach. It is recommended to use these supplements half an hour before or two hours after eating for maximum absorption of iron in the body.

According to experts, vitamin C plays a significant role in the maximum absorption of iron, and on the other hand, substances such as polyphenols prevent the maximum absorption of iron in the body. Therefore, it is recommended to use foods containing vitamin C for maximum absorption of iron in the body.

Oranges, tangerines, berries, strawberries, red peppers, cabbage, lemons and tomatoes are the main sources of vitamin C.

According to experts, fatigue, weakness, pallor, and shortness of breath are symptoms of severe iron deficiency in the body, in which case they are advised to use iron supplements.

They also say that people who do heavy exercise regularly need more iron in their bodies than other people because of the increased transport of red blood cells and the greater need for oxygen.
