Iron deficiency is the most common mineral deficiency in the world. But there is a very simple natural solution.

Symptoms of iron deficiency:
• Hair loss
• Arrhythmias
• Fatigue and weakness
• Dark circles under the eyes
• Restless leg syndrome
• Difficulty sleeping
• Low cold tolerance
• Split nails
• Trouble concentrating
• Fibromyalgia

We need iron to help build hemoglobin and thyroid hormones, to make dopamine, and to keep nerve impulses working correctly.

There are many different causes of iron deficiency. However, it’s more common to have non-anemic iron deficiency than anemia. This means that the lack of iron isn’t affecting the blood yet, but it’s affecting other parts of the body.

Iron deficiency causes:
• Not consuming enough iron (animal products)
• Inflammation
• Stress or trauma
• Bleeding or ulcers
• Low hydrochloric acid
• Menstruation
• Gastric bypass surgery
• Excessive exercise
• Antacids
• Fibroids
• Pregnancy
• Breastfeeding
• Puberty
• Eating disorders
• Phytic acid
• Tannins (tea, coffee, red wine)
• Chocolate
• Polyphenols (turmeric, red wine)
• Polymorphism
• Too much calcium or magnesium
• Infection
• Oxalates

It’s best to get your iron from your diet before jumping into taking an iron supplement. Foods rich in iron are red meat, liver, and shellfish. However, liver pills or spleen pills could be good supplement options.

You also need to work towards identifying why you’re iron deficient so that you can fix the root cause.

If you have too much iron in your body, you can try natural remedies, including:
• Distilled water
• Turmeric
• Cocoa bean
• Black tea
• A phytic acid supplement (IP6)
