Are you iron deficient? Iron is an important mineral that should be consumed each day.  If you have low iron levels in your blood, you may have iron-deficiency anemia or borderline anemia, a condition that can ultimately result in a shortage of oxygen in the body. You can reduce your risk of iron deficiency anemia by choosing iron-rich foods.

Foods rich in iron include:

Beans
Dark green leafy vegetables, such as spinach
Dried fruit, such as raisins and apricots
Eggs
Iron-fortified cereals, breads and pastas
Peas
Pork
Poultry
Red meat
Seafood

Also, to improve your iron levels, it is important to eat not only foods that are rich in iron but also foods that are high in vitamin C, which helps your body absorb iron from other foods.
