In brief: Healthy diet

Sources of iron - egg yolk, molasses, raisin bran, raisins, prunes, dried apricots, figs, kidney beans, pinto beans, navy beans, lentils, split green peas, enriched cereals, enriched macaroni, spinach, greens, broccoli, lima beans, avocado.
Cook in a cast iron pan. The following foods can help your body absorb iron better: orange, cantaloupe, strawberries, grapefruit, broccoli, brussels sprouts.

In brief: Balanced protein

Low iron saturation means the body's protein is not combining with iron well.
Take adequate protein from fish, poultry and eggs. Iron is better absorbed with vitamin c.
