Beat this all-too-common deficiency with seaweed!
We all know we should eat a healthy, balanced diet with lots of nutrient-rich fruits and vegetables, but doing so can prove more difficult than expected. When you're struggling to juggle the constant demands of daily life, you may find yourself cutting corners when it comes to mealtime. This pattern is all too common, and the result may be a nutrient deficiency you aren't even aware of.
Iron can be found in red meat, leafy greens, beans and egg yolks, among other foods. This mineral plays a vital role in transporting oxygen throughout the body, and also facilitates the work of enzymes that break down food and support overall health on several fronts. But despite its prevalence, many people – particularly pregnant women – fall short of their recommended daily intake of iron.
Women's Health Magazine has highlighted some of the most telltale symptoms of an iron deficiency, including:
- Exhaustion due to lack of hemoglobin
- Diminished interest in work, friends and activities you enjoyed caused by reduced neurotransmitter function
- Loss of productivity due to slowed neurotransmitter activity
- Shortness of breath because of lack of oxygen in body.
These are just a few issues that may arise if you consistently miss out on iron in your diet. If you are concerned about this issue, nutrition expert Dr. Oz notes that seaweed can be an excellent source of iron. Plus, it also contains plenty of other essential nutrients to boost your overall health.
