3 Foods That Are High In Iron (Volume 1)
I was just looking at YouTube and saw a thumbnail of the legendary Avengers movie series.
The thumbnail was of when Ironman did ‘The Snap’ and saved the universe.
Just the thought of that powerful moment and sacrifice gave me chills.
Heck, it’s giving me chills as I write this!
The importance of Ironman to that movie series cannot be overstated, just like the importance of iron to the human body.
You love how I just brought it all together right there, don’t you? Lol.
Seriously, though, iron is an essential element for the human body, especially its blood production.*
Have you ever heard of hemoglobin?
Well, that’s your red blood cells, and around 70 percent of your body’s iron is found in them and in muscle cells called myoglobin.*
You see, hemoglobin is essential for blood oxygen transfer from your lungs to the tissues.*
On the other hand, myoglobin, in muscle cells, accepts, stores, transports, and releases the oxygen.*
This is extremely important because, when iron stores are near exhausted (‘iron depletion‘) or even worse (‘iron-deficient erythropoiesis‘), iron deficiency anemia rears its ugly, and potentially deadly head.*
And that’s why vampires, like the ones from a legendary television show called The Originals, love a diet rich in iron.
It’s because lack of it causes blood loss, which is the most common cause of iron deficiency.
And one thing we all know about vampires is that they looooooooooooooove them some blood. Well…
…they actually can’t live without it, so I can see why Lol. Anyway…
…now that we’ve placed both a beloved movie and a television show in this article, we’re hoping that you will love the video we’ve placed below for you.
