The Importance Of Iron
Are you Struggling to find the energy to get back on track and conquer your weight loss goals. We are going through the coldest time of our winter and this makes it seem impossible but believe me ….Summer bodies are made in Winter. Adding iron to your diet can give your health a huge boost, helping you feel more energised and happier.
You can increase the iron in your day-to-day diet, and take a supplement to help boost your levels – just make sure you chose one that is gentle on the stomach but has a high absorption level. Here’s are just a few ways iron helps:
IT GIVES YOU ENERGY
Iron’s main job is to help make red blood cells which transport oxygen around the body and stop you feeling tired. As iron is integral to energy production, it’s likely to keep you motivated to do that yoga class or go to the gym.
IT HELPS US EAT HEALTHILY
When we’re tired, we’re more likely to start snacking so the extra energy iron provides can help keep you on the straight and narrow.
IT IMPROVES YOUR MOOD
If you’re getting irritable or feeling low, it could be due to low iron levels as the mineral is vital for brain health.
Without enough iron, your brain can’t produce hormones like serotonin which boost your mood.
IT STOPS YOU GETTING SICK
Iron helps boost our immune system which protects us from illness so if you have enough in your diet, you’re more likely to stay well and suffer fewer infections.
IT CAN STOP YOU WORRYING
If your body tissues aren’t getting enough oxygen, it can cause feelings of anxiety. So having plenty of iron in your diet could help you worry less.
IT GIVES YOU A HEALTHY GLOW
A healthy dose of iron can give your face a lovely pink, rosy glow. But without it, not enough oxygen can get to your skin, causing it to look pale and sallow.
SO HOW CAN I GET MORE IRON IN MY DIET?
Make sure you eat enough foods rich in the mineral. They include red meat, shellfish, turkey, tofu and spinach. If that’s not possible, or you want to ensure you’re getting enough iron every day, try a supplement.
IT SUPPORTS VEGANS AND VEGETARIANS
While there are many plant sources of iron, vegans and vegetarians often struggle to get enough in their diet, particular when they first give up meat and/or dairy.
IT’S BRAIN FOOD
The brain uses up to 25pc of the oxygen in our bodies and can’t work properly without it. That’s why if you’re not getting enough iron, you might find yourself struggling to remember things or to concentrate properly.
IT PREVENTS HEADACHES
If not enough oxygen gets to the brain, it can lead to pressure and pain in the organ – which we experience as headaches.
