WHAT IS A GOOD IRON SUPPLEMENT OT TAKE? DOCTOR TOLD ME TO TAKE 325 MG OF IRON. THANK YOU, LINDA
I think if it is prescribed by the physician or doctor then you need to follow the recommendation and advice...
you can take these foods.
The following foods are good sources of heme iron (from animal sources):
- Chicken liver
- Beef liver
- Beef (chuck roast, lean ground beef)
- Turkey leg
- Leg of lamb
The following foods are good sources of nonheme iron (from plants):
- Raisin bran (enriched)
- Instant oatmeal
- Beans (kidney, lima, Navy)
- Whole wheat bread
- Peanut butter
- Brown rice
Try to combine nonheme iron foods with vitamin C (for example, a glass of orange juice) to increase absorption of iron.
