Kale for iron

If you are feeling tired this holiday season, it may have something to do with your iron levels.  One in 10 women are anemic and new research from Cornell and the Medical University of South Carolina says that even if you’re not showing up as anemic in blood tests, even “being low but not anemic” on iron can affect your energy levels.

Dr. Diane DellaValle, PhD, RDN believes that women who are low on iron may not even have symptoms.

You can get iron from foods such as:

  • lentils
  • dark leafy greens like Kale
  • red meat.
  • Tomatoes and citrus like oranges will also help your body absorb more iron.
