Question: What to eat to increase HB, my HB is very low it's 8.3, pls help
Answer: Hello! Hemoglobin is responsible for carrying oxygen throughout the bodyIf the Hb level drops, it can cause weakness, fatigue and lead to anemia. Have a glass of beetroot juice on daily basis. Apart from this try to follow these too.
1. Eat Iron-Rich Food-
The top iron rich foods include green leafy vegetables like spinach, beetroot, tofu, asparagus, chicken liver, whole egg, oysters, apple, pomegranate, apricot, watermelon, prunes, pumpkin seeds, dates, almonds, raisins, amla and jaggery
2. Increase Vitamin C Intake
Eat foods rich in vitamin C such as oranges, lemon, strawberries, papaya, bell peppers, broccoli, grapefruit and tomatoes.
3. Increase Folic Acid Intake
Some good food sources of folic acid are green leafy vegetables, sprouts, dried beans, wheat germ, peanuts, bananas, broccoli and chicken liver. Beetroot is also highly recommended to increase the body’s red blood cell count as it is high in folic acid as well as iron, potassium and fibre.
4. An Apple (or Pomegranate) a Day Keeps The Doctor Away
An apple a day can help maintain a normal level of hemoglobin, since apples are rich in iron plus other health-friendly components that are required for a healthy hemoglobin count. You can either eat 1 apple a day, or drink juice made with ½ cup each of apple and beetroot juice twice a day. Add a dash of ginger or lemon juice for extra flavour. Pomegranate is also rich in iron, calcium, fiber and protein. Its nutritional value can help increase hemoglobin and promote healthy blood flow.
5. Avoid Iron Blockers
Avoid eating foods that can block your body’s ability to absorb iron, especially if you have a low hemoglobin count i.e. coffee, tea, cola drinks, wine, beer, etc.
Moderate to high intensity workouts are highly recommended, because when you exercise - your body produces more hemoglobin to meet the increasing demand for oxygen throughout the body.
