Iron deficiency is the most common nutritional deficiency in the United States, and how much or how little you properly consume iron on a daily basis can be the difference between feeling constantly tired or feeling like you are energized enough to seize the day.
Read below for the most iron-rich foods you can add to your diet, both coming from animal sources and plant sources. While proteins coming from animals (especially livers, beef, seafood, and turkey meats) are the most efficient way to add more iron to your diet, it is also important to get a lot of iron from plant-based sources as well.
While eating iron-rich meals, add vitamin C to your diet, which aids in absorption of iron. Avoid calcium-rich foods like milk and cheese, which competes with iron in mineral absorption in your body.
