The iron requirements are very important for the sickle cell patient. Iron is present in small quantities ( 0.005% of body weight ) in the body. It is a mineral trace element found in hemoglobin (the protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen from the lungs to each cell) and in myoglobin (the protein responsible for oxygenating the muscles. ).

This article mainly deals with some foods that can allow sickle cell patients to make an additional supply of iron for the proper functioning of their bodies. There are  two types of iron:

  • the heme-iron content in poultry, meats, fish, shellfish ...
  • the iron non-heme vegetable is that such content in fresh or dried fruit and vegetables, and cereals ... Only 5% will be absorbed by the body because iron non-heme is less well absorbed by the body.

Vitamin C  helps assimilation, and if the meals have the traditional form with raw vegetables at the beginning and fruit for dessert, the necessary contribution will be made. The fruits and vegetables that contain the most vitamin C are kiwis, tomato, oranges, cabbage, and colorful vegetables in general.

If you are suffering from sickle cell disease and want to be cured naturally, our experts have the solution for you.
