Deferred for low iron? Boost your iron by taking an 18-38 mg iron supplement daily! Or, red meat is a great source, and dark leafy greens (spinach, kale, etc.), poultry, liver, egg yolks and dried beans are good as well. Non-meat sources are best eaten with foods/beverages containing vitamin C (ie: orange juice, broccoli, sweet peppers) to help your body absorb the iron.
