Dreadful Disease HAUNTING Seniors (Yikes!)

Happy Halloween, friend!

Tis the season of ghosts, goblins, and witches.

But today I have a tale for you that’s much more terrifying than the ghost stories you love to tell your grandchildren.

This dreadful disease is HAUNTING seniors… and like the grimmest of ghouls, it just won’t let go.

It could lead to extreme fatigue, heart problems, and even death.

So why is no one talking about it?

Up to 44 percent of seniors are anemic… and it just seems to be getting worse.

Anemia is the technical term for iron deficiency. When your body doesn’t have enough iron, it has a difficult time making red blood cells.

This is obviously a problem because red blood cells are vital for carrying oxygen throughout your body.

People who aren’t getting enough oxygen feel tired, look pale,  and can be dizzy or weak. Being anemic also puts you at a much higher risk for diseases like heart failure.

Using a large database, a group of researchers from the US National Heart Lung and Blood Institute found that iron intake has dropped 6.6 percent in men and 9.5 percent in women over the last twenty years.

While anemia has always been a health issue, it’s becoming more prevalent because people are avoiding red meats.

A 2019 study published in Annals of Internal Medicine destroyed the myth of red meat being harmful… but it wasn’t enough. Many folks still shun red meat.

Another contributor to the rising cases of anemia is that the iron in our food is also dropping, due to farming practice changes and nutrient-deficient soil.

It’s a chicken-and-the-egg problem… our food is lacking iron, and we’re not eating enough iron-rich foods to begin with.

If you’re concerned about anemia, request a blood test from your doctor. If your levels are low enough, you may need to supplement.

Most people avoid taking an iron supplement because they’ve heard it can be constipating. But to solve that problem, just pick the right kind of iron.

The best iron to take is one that’s bound to protein, like this one. Avoid iron like ferrous sulfate or ferrous oxide.

And to truly double down on fighting anemia, make sure you get enough vitamin C as well because it can help you absorb iron. Aim for up to 1,000mg daily.
