greens, like spinach with Lemon juice for the sauce help w/ iron absorption. The acid from the lemon binds with the iron.

Hello all BTD's;
While we are on the subject of nutrient absorbency here, I have a problem with absorbing my nutrients which cause me to  have vitamin and mineral deficiencies. Must be due to the fact that i have a gluten disorder which leads me to believe that I think I had the leaky gut syndrome in the beginning.
Anywho, I keep reading about enzymes and the fact that so many people are deficient in this supplement. this is what helps to break down nutrients in foods and supplements, without it, your supplements and the nutrients in the foods you eat do you no good. So, I guess that enzymes are very important and essential to type A's who have digeative problems or anyone who has digestive issues. Your gut is the key to your health and we need to take special care of it. I take a good probiotic supplement, an HCI supplement with pepsin, and a super enzyme before my meals. So, those who cannot absorp iron, might want to try supplementing with a good enzyme. I think Dr. D.'s pharmacal store might have some.
Take care,
Footprints.

Thanks! You just reminded me that I need some spirulina tabs. I buy Earthwise..They really help me with cognitive funcitoning..along with PS.   Low iron would affect my cognitive and emotional function.

Bingo!

Sorry but a lot of you need to break it down to science. You need vitamin C to absorb non-heme iron, period. Without it you can eat all the greens in the world and be anemic.

Meat has non-heme and heme. Heme is ready for bodily use as is, non-heme is not.

Absolutely right - was just about to post this myself... Having been very low in iron, despite eating all the "right" things, I realised I had omitted to eat citrus... I've been eating a grapefruit or a lemon every day and now finally my iron levels have almost doubled in last 3 months...without adding heaps of meat even...
And yes Mayflowers you can be low in iron, or anemic, even if you aren't stick thin!!!

Do you take Vitamin C supplements? Wouldn't that do the same thing as eating citrus?
I can barely tolerate grapefruit..

Vitamin C in the same meal is best when eating veggie iron.

It would be better than nothing, but from what I've read, food sources are better than taking supplements
I buy organic grapefruits and they are sweeter than the ones I remember buying elsewhere... Oranges would be ok tho' if you can eat them although organic, locally grown & naturally ripened would be better (I've also heard that oranges are often picked green for transporting and therefore have very little vit c in them...
