Anemia is a condition where the red blood cells of your body are not adequate in number, or the haemoglobin part of the blood cell is not adequately supplying oxygen to the body. This dysfunction of the red blood cells results in you feeling tired and fatigued most of the time. Below are some of the natural home remedies which can help boost your energy and avoid anaemia:
Anaemia is known to weaken the body’s immune system and thus make it susceptible to infections. Oranges can provide you with an adequate dose of vitamin C which will help strengthen you from within and help in the absorption of iron. Have orange juice or lemon water every day.
Yogurt with turmeric
This remedy helps in balancing the Kapha dosha in the body and is highly effective for people suffering from Kapha-type anaemia. Have a cup of yogurt mixed with a teaspoon of turmeric twice every day.
Beetroot or pomegranate juice
These two fruits act as a great blood purifier. Beetroots are rich in folic acids and pomegranates are rich in iron and potassium. Regular consumption of both of these juices can help boost energy and make you feel more active.
Black sesame seeds
Black sesame seeds increase your iron intake. Soak the seeds in some water for 2-3 hours and then grind it into a paste. Consume a teaspoon of this paste with a teaspoon of honey every day.
Consume three overnight soaked almonds every day for at least two months.
Although the above home remedies are great for anaemia, having a well-balanced diet is equally important. Consume iron-rich foods like liver, seafood, molasses, brown rice, poultry, eggs, green leafy vegetables, mushrooms, beans, and whole grains to prevent the recurrence of anaemia.
