Try This Iron-Boosting Green Smoothie To Get Rid of Anemia And Remedy Iron Deficiency

718

Contrary to popular belief, iron is in a variety of plant foods, and any individual who properly eats a plant-based diet (without eating solely vegan junk food), will get as much iron as those who consume animal products.

This iron-boosting green smoothie will provide your body with plenty of iron – the trace element required by the body for blood formation (which then goes on to activate enzymatic reactions, regulate cell growth, and act as a mediator for collagen synthesis).

The ingredients in this smoothie work together to help ensure that ingredients containing higher iron concentrations are readily absorbed by the body. Pairing high-iron foods with foods that are high in vitamin C ensures this process can occur.

Ingredients:

– 4 ripe kiwi fruit, peeled
– 2 cups dark leafy greens (spinach, kale, romaine, or a mix of all)
– 1/2 cucumber
– 2 ripe spotty bananas
– 1/4 cup soaked goji berries
– 1 tbsp. hemp seeds
– 1 tbsp. chia seeds
– 1 cup filtered water or young coconut water

Method:

Stick all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Enjoy!
