Anemia is a deficiency, which happens due to low hemoglobin levels within the blood, which is due to less intake of iron. It mostly happens in women. The symptoms of this disease may vary from shortness of breath to fatigue or dizziness and many more.
With the help of this article, we are trying to give away the list of dry fruits that are rich in iron and can help in improving the hemoglobin levels within the blood.
Raisin – Grape is a very rich source of iron. Raisins which are the dried form of grape contain a variety of nutrients like iron, zinc, protein, manganese and antioxidants. For every 100 grams of raisins consumed you get about 10 milligrams of iron. The concentration of iron varies with the quality of the dry fruit; good-quality dry fruits have a greater concentration of iron.
Dried mulberry – It is among the richest known sources of iron. There is about 42.5 milligrams of iron present in every 100 grams of dried mulberry. One can have it while eating porridge. Eating a bowl of porridge with dried mulberry everyday will not only help you to treat anemia but also beautify the skin. This dry fruit should be consumed carefully by pregnant women.
Dates – They are a rich source of iron. A cup of dates has nearly 10 milligrams of iron. Apart from iron, dates are also a rich source of Vitamin C and Vitamin A. Vitamin C helps in improving the absorption of iron making it a very important constituent of our diet. However, dates must be consumed in moderate quantities only as they contain large amounts of dietary fibres, which are not quite easily digested by the body. You can have them by chipping and sprinkling them on your sweet dishes, puddings and cakes.
