In brief: Iron

Iron supplements should be taken by all women as they lean toward anemia from having menstrual periods.
Vitamin c helps absorption of iron, raising it from 10% to 90%. This may help decrease the constipation that iron supplements can cause. Iron level can be monitored by blood testing.
