Iron Rich Foods For Anemia


Fish is one of the most nutritious foods in the diet. Several varieties may be especially high in iron, such as tuna, sardines, mackerel, and haddock. For instance, a portion of canned tuna provides around 8 percent of the daily recommended intake. Fish is also a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, a form of heart-healthy fat linked to many health benefits. Especially, studies have shown that omega-3 fatty acid may help improve immunity, support healthy development and growth, and well boost brain health. Other important nutrients in fish include vitamin B12, selenium, and niacin. [1]
