Iron is a valuable mineral that we need to add into our body every day through diet. This mineral helps to support overall blood and oxygen delivery to all the cells in the body, iron is the primary player in anemia. Turmeric is a compound that contains some iron (although not in abundant amounts), but surprisingly, a small two teaspoon serving contains about five percent of your daily needs for iron. Consider this an option in your diet if you are looking to boost your iron levels in a healthy way. Inform your doctor on your decision to add turmeric to your diet to help boost your iron levels as well.
