Hi, you should cook food in cast iron cookware. It helps you to make your food iron-enriched. It helps in increasing iron content in your food by 20 times. Get more info about cast iron cookware


How much of an increase do you want to see? Do you have an underlying blood condition like anemia or thalassemia? What does your gynae recommend? Eating more iron doesnt mean your body can absorb the full amount.

I have thalassemia, a blood condition. My red blood cell count was only 10.2. But I cannot take a lot of iron because my body cannot absorb. I have been on iron since week 13 till before I gave birth and my red blood count only increased by 1.

Redbean. I always like to drink redbean water not soup without sugar before pregnant Even my gynae shock abt my high level of iron

please tell me how do you make redbean water?

Vitamin C helps with iron absorption. You could try eating some fruits I.e. oranges with foods high in iron.
