Anemia doesn't play nice with our hair and skin either. Our beautiful hair needs proper blood flow to stay strong, and healthy blood flow relies on those trusty red blood cells. Without them, hair growth can slow down and we might even see more hair shedding.
If you're noticing these signs, it's always best to chat with a healthcare professional. They can run tests and guide you on the best steps forward.
If you are anemic, consider upping the amount of anemia-busting foods like leafy greens, beans, and fortified cereals are your friends. They're packed with iron that can help boost those red blood cells. Also, water helps your blood flow and carries oxygen to your cells, so drink up!
Pair iron-rich foods with vitamin C sources, like oranges or bell peppers. Vitamin C helps your body absorb iron better. If your doctor gives you the green light, iron supplements can give you a boost.
