I see a lot of patients (and people in my life) who are low in iron and they’re put on mega doses of iron that are hard on the gut and on the body in general. A lot of times, these high doses of iron don’t really cause a shift in the body’s iron levels or stores.
I personally find that gentler ways of boosting iron make a bigger impact on blood parameters and fatigue symptoms. These include eating iron-rich foods like pumpkin seeds, dark leafy greens, red meat and/or liver, black sesame seeds, organic blackstrap molasses, and beets.
