Feeling Tired? Check Your Red Blood Cells
Red blood cells give blood its colour and are produced regularly in our bone marrow. To produce these cells, our body needs iron, protein and vitamins from the food we eat. These cells contain haemoglobin, which main function is to transfer oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body tissues. When there is insufficient level of haemoglobin in the blood system, the amount of oxygen that gets transported throughout the body is reduced, affecting the function of body organs and tissues.
The most significant impact of low blood cell level in the body is fatigue. It affects our daily lifestyle as we lack the energy and concentration to complete our tasks for the day.
Having imbalance diet and irregular meals also affect the absorption of vital nutrients into our body. One of the most important nutrients to keep our red blood cell count healthy is iron, which can be found in red meat, liver, dried beans, peas, vegetables and dried fruits. Iron requirement is higher during pregnancy and breastfeeding due to iron stores in the mother’s body are used up faster than normal by a growing baby.
