It depends...: This depends on whether you are deficient in iron, B12 or folate; if so, then increasing your levels will increase hemoglobin; if not then it won't make a difference. There are no good vegetable sources of b12- you need to supplement with it.

My hemoglobin level is increased every time.So what is the best solution to reduce the increase in hemoglobin level?
