What causes women to run out of iron?
Overwhelmingly women are deficient in iron.
So why are women deficient in iron?
1. 1.Because I have menstruation
The main reason is that women have menstruation and she bleeds every month if she is not pregnant.
Due to menstruation, blood and iron in the blood are lost, and iron deficiency is likely to occur.
Especially in recent years, the number of menstrual periods has increased significantly due to late marriage and a decrease in the birth rate.
Women are more likely to have anemia and have uterine problems.
2. 2.Changes in eating habits
In recent years, the chances of eating foods high in iron have decreased significantly.
It is troublesome to make the following side dishes that contain a lot of iron.
Ingredients rich in iron
・ Spinach soak
・ Boiled liver
・ Kanro-ni of hijiki seaweed
・ Cooking with black sesame seeds
on the other hand,
Easy-to-eat meals such as fast food, bread, and pasta have become popular.
Therefore, it is thought that iron is insufficient.
How to improve iron deficiency?
To improve iron deficiency, "supplement iron" and "store iron".
1. 1.Supplement iron
To supplement iron, you need to supplement it from foods and supplements.
Because women have menstruation, it is necessary to supplement their iron deficiency by taking 10,5 g of iron daily.
Some iron-rich meals include:
A diet high in iron
|Boiled can of Asari||30g||11.3 mg|
|Pork liver||100g||13 mg|
|Boiled hijiki seaweed||20g||11 mg|
|Spinach soak||300g||11 mg|
It may be quite difficult to eat with meals ...!I can't eat 300g of ohitashi and I can't cook this dish every day.
Precautions when ingesting iron
Iron is difficult to absorb and should be taken with vitamin C.
Also, drinks containing caffeine and tannins and foods containing dietary fiber
Care must be taken as it inhibits iron absorption.
2. 2.Store iron
Even if you take a lot of iron, if you bleed a lot during your period, you will be in a state of iron deficiency.
Most people with over-menstruation have a cold lower body, which may be cold or have severe menstrual cramps.
First of all, let's try to improve the sensitivity to cold.

Her white hair and hair loss may increase due to lack of iron, and her appearance may look old.
If her skin is dull, she loses her confidence.

Please start a life that makes up for the iron deficiency.
