Many people face issues due to the low levels of haemoglobin in the body. You must have seen a lot of women, especially, complain about health problems like anaemia that’s caused due to decreased levels of haemoglobin. Haemoglobin is basically, an iron-rich protein found in the red blood cells. It works to supply oxygen to all the parts of the body. And if by any chance, your body experiences a drop in the levels of haemoglobin, that’s when you start feeling a range of health conditions including fatigue, dizziness, headaches, or shortness of breath among others. So, it’s really important for each and every person to work on improving the levels of haemoglobin. A page on Instagram by the name “Nutrition by Lovneet,” shares a post dedicated to the food items that can help you boost haemoglobin levels.
