Mild acids help: Acid is a requirement for absorption of iron in the duodenum where the majority is absorbed. Mild acids are well known to augment iron absorption, most notable Ascorbic Acid (vitamin c). New treatments for gastric and duodenal ulcers, such as the proton pump inhibitor omeprazole, can inhibit iron intake and make you anemic. Apple cider vinegar might help if one has iron deficiency anemia.
