Womb Work: The Importance Of Iron + My Top Iron Packed Foods

11:28 PM

Let's chat about minerals for a second, shall we? 
Minerals are very vital to our health almost as much as water.


"When is the last time you had your iron level checked? Low iron levels could be the reason for your irregular period + perimenopause + more." - @thmoderndoula
A mineral is an inorganic element that is essential to the nourishment and health of the human body. Lacking certain minerals can cause many things to become unbalanced including hormones, which we know are essential to the menstrual cycle, skin, digestive system, and all around womb and reproductive health.

One of the most common minerals that women tend to have a low level of is the trace-mineral known as is iron.

A low level of iron can result in many complications including reproductive organ issues and failure, absence of menstrual cycle, and early menopause. There are a lot of reasons that low iron can exist but the most common is found with women and young children is poor diet.

So how do you get the recommended daily amount of iron?

Most of the time I rarely recommend supplements as a dependent source when needing to consume the recommended amount of minerals and vitamins for the body. Whole and nutrient dense vegetables and fruits will always have the perfect amount of both minerals and vitamins we need to maintain healthy and balanced levels of nutrients.

You can find this mineral in my top favorite organic, locally grown plant foods like:
 brussel sprouts
spinach
 lentils
tofu
 beans (kidneys are my favorite!)


Try incorporating these foods in your diet throughout the week.
