How can you raise your iron saturation levels? Mine came back low at 19%, iron was 51. 37/m

In brief: Take more iron!

I wouldn't worry too much about saturation.
But with an iron saturation of under 25%, your body is using up the iron you are taking, so you may need to take more (or eat more iron-rich foods!) to meet your body's needs.
