Here's what you need to get just the right dose
Q How can I tell if I'm getting enough iron?
A That's an important question. Iron is a key part of hemoglobin, a protein your red blood cells use to carry oxygen from your lungs to the rest of your body. If you're low in iron, you may feel weak and run-down because your body isn't getting enough oxygen.
Many of us grew up with the idea that red meat is high in iron--and it is. But it's also high in cholesterol, animal fat, and other undesirables.
