What Is The Fastest Way To Boost Up The Haemoglobin?

Recent studies have shown that the level of hemoglobin in the body can be boosted by foods rich in iron. Iron is responsible in determining the blood’s hemoglobin levels. When the amount of hemoglobin in the red blood cells drops below the required levels, based on the age and gender of the person, it leads to a disorder of the blood known as anemia.

There are several factors that can lead to low hemoglobin in the red blood cells. Nutritional deficiency, particularly the deficiency of iron, vitamin B12 or folic acid, is the most common cause of low levels of hemoglobin in the blood. It is a good idea to seek medical advice, specifically from a hematologist who will suggest a few tests such as determining the complete blood count including red cell indicators, a tally of reticulocytes as well as a peripheral smear investigation. These tests will help your doctor to realize the exact cause of anemia and will recommend treatment accordingly. It is important to bear in mind that diet alone is not always be effective in providing the necessary amount of iron, if the diagnostic tests disclose a deficiency in iron. In most situations, doctors usually prescribe iron supplements for a specific duration, to increase the level of iron in the blood.

There are several natural remedies that can increase the levels of hemoglobin in the red blood cells. Beetroot is believed to be an age-old effective option, due to its high content of beta carotene and iron. Beetroot can be consumed in any form especially as a drink from freshly extracted beetroots blended with apple juice and honey.

Bananas too have been found to be quite beneficial in increasing the level of hemoglobin. Eat ripe bananas, as they are rich in iron and bananas mixed with honey twice daily are believed to increase the levels of hemoglobin. Researchers say that vitamin C may also be helpful in enhancing the body’s absorption of iron, in the body. Hence, individuals afflicted with low levels of hemoglobin are recommended to add foods with a high content of Vitamin C in their diets. Another effective option is to use honey. Honey has been known to be an ideal natural cure for anemia. Not only does it help in increasing the amount of hemoglobin in the blood cells, but is also a rich source of minerals such as manganese, iron and copper. Other foods rich in iron include edible legumes and beans, whole grain meals, leafy green vegetables, tomatoes, potatoes as well fresh and dried fruits.

The fastest way to boost your hemoglobin is to stockpile in foods that are rich in iron. Iron provides red blood cells, which determine the quantity of hemoglobin in the blood. If your body is deficient in iron, chances are very high that you would also be deficient in hemoglobin. Some of the foods rich in iron are spinach, beetroot, soya beans, apples, almonds, pears, tomatoes, potato peels, figs and alfalfa sprouts. In order to add to your blood count, you can also include at least one serving of red meat in a day. This will also raise your hemoglobin levels very rapidly. You must make sure your body receives a combination of at least five to seven of these edibles every single day, in order to boost your count. It is preferable to have most of the listed components (except meat) raw, as they are richest in iron. Cooking may destroy iron content by as much as half. Potato peels may be dried and toasted in order to make them an interesting snack.

It is also important to cut back on tea, coffee, cigarettes and alcohol, since all of them inhibit absorption of iron in the body and therefore reduce your blood count. You can have herbal tea, fresh juices or water instead.
