So what can be done to increase hemoglobin?
To start with products that prevent the receipt of iron in the blood.
In the first place innocuous-looking drink: tea, coffee, Coca Cola. They contain caffeine that blocks the absorption of iron in the blood.
Brine, vinegar, cabbage, sorrel – acidic environment adversely affects the absorption of iron.
Alcohol – can trigger pathological processes of blood clotting
Calcium and iron together are incompatible. In any case, do not take with milk food, dairy products will not allow for absorption valuable trace element.
Flour, pasta – wheat prevents the increase of hemoglobin
Too much fat food
Now let's talk about the foods that contribute to the accumulation of iron in the body
It is important to know that iron-containing foods you need to eat always with vitamin C. any vegetable or fruit it will be much of a difference. It can be juices, vegetables, citrus, berries.

Prune juice, pomegranate, and beet – they are especially useful in anemia.
Walnuts, dried fruits are a rich supply of iron.
Honey helps the absorption of iron.
If the hemoglobin content is much below normal, is to drink a course of iron supplements.
