1. what can you eat to combat iron deficiency?
In general, it is always particularly important to pay attention to a healthy and, above all, balanced diet. In order to avoid an iron deficiency, particular importance should be attached to foods containing iron. If the human organism receives too little iron, the oxygen supply can be impaired. It can also lead to cracked nails, broken hair and anaemia. Both animal and plant foods contain iron. The body is particularly good at utilising iron from animal products. Vitamin C also supports the absorption of iron in the body. When it comes to animal products, liver is a particularly good source of iron, as it contains the highest proportion of iron of all animal products. This is followed by duck liver with 30mg of iron per 100g. In the case of plant foods, oat flakes, wheat bran, sesame seeds, pulses and pistachios are particularly suitable. While egg white inhibits the absorption, egg yolk is a good source of iron.
2 What is the daily requirement of iron?
The German Nutrition Society (DGE) recommends a daily iron intake of 10 to 15 mg for an adult. Children should take in about 10 mg of iron per day. Pregnant and breastfeeding women are recommended to take in higher amounts of iron, as they have to take care of their unborn child. They should consume about 20 to 30 mg of iron per day.
