10 Ways to Increase Your Hemoglobin Level

3- Consume Folic Acid

Folic acid is a Vitamin B-complex that is necessary for the production of red blood cells. Thus, a deficiency of folic acid naturally leads to the lowering of haemoglobin level.

  • Examples of food sources rich in folic acid are Broccoli, wheat germ, liver, sprouts, dried beans, wheat germ, fortified cereals, rice, peanuts, bananas, and green leafy vegetables.
  • Doses of 200 to 400 milligrams of a folate supplement can also be consumed daily but only after doctor’s consultation.

4- Beetroots

Beetroot has high levels of iron, fibre, folic acid and potassium present in it that naturally helps in increasing the red blood cell count of the body.

  • Prepare 1 to 2 beetroots by placing them in a microwave with their peels on or roasting them on the stove.
  • Let them sit for some time and cool before peeling and consuming them.
  • A healthy juice can be prepared by juicing 1 medium-sized beetroot with 3 carrots and 1/2 of a sweet potato.
  • Consume this drink once daily.
