Iron Boosting Smoothie Recipe (Safe For Babies, Pregnant and Nursing Mamas)

Did you know that Iron deficiency Anemia is very common in children? Is you Child getting enough Iron from his diet? While lack of enough Iron in body can make you lethargic, dull and weak at the same time Iron Deficiency in Children has also been linked to Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD). ADHD is a label given to children whose attention span is short, are unable to focus or concentrate and are hyper active. Instead of labeling it as a Physicatric disorder and pushing Ritalin on these innocent children if everyone can find a root cause of the problem and solve it then these labels or conditions wouldn’t exist. I will write more about ADHD and how to reverse it naturally with the help of Diet, Supplement, Herbs and Homeopathy later.

If you feel that your kid’s behavior has changed suddenly, if his appetite has decreased drastically, if he is losing weight, unable to focus or concentrate on anything then you might want to get his Iron level checked.

Low level of Iron can also cause some complications during Pregnancy. Commercial Iron supplements is not an answer because they are synthetic and not food based and often cause constipation and other discomforts. Low level of iron also increases your possibility of getting a Blood Transfusion after the Birth so make sure that your levels are great by adding Iron rich foods and herbs in your diet.
