If there are deficiencies in the body, then health problems increase. Iron deficiency is major for women. Iron is essential for making hemoglobin, which carries oxygen in the blood. When our metabolic system lacks enough iron, our body does not get the energy it needs. It occurs due to lack of iron in the diet or when the body itself is unable to absorb iron from the food we eat. Ayurveda, being the science of life and longevity, recognizes the importance of adequate iron levels for good health, especially for women.
Dr Saurabh Sharma, Medical Superintendent, Maharishi Ayurveda Hospital said, “Women are one of the vibrant people who play many roles in their lives that demand focus and energy. However, dietary intake due to overload of workload and lack of proper facilities, sometimes, their body prevents them from performing equally in every field and this is probably due to iron deficiency. In fact, iron deficiency can cause fatigue, headache, dizziness, damaged hair and skin, heart palpitations, etc. Problems can often deprive them of maintaining a healthy work-life balance and disrupt the work ecosystem. Also iron deficiency causes anemia.
He further added, “It has been observed that due to overwork, women suffer from fatigue, low immunity, frequent headaches, pale skin, bad nails, pale lips, hair fall, restless legs syndrome, depression and deficiency. These problems can be due to iron deficiency as one in 3 people are prone to iron deficiency and iron deficiency requirement cannot be met with regular diet as our body only 3 percent iron. Only plant sources and 15 percent animal sources can be extracted from the diet.Therefore, to meet the iron requirement that our body, especially women’s body, requires Ayurvedic iron supplementation, which helps in treating iron deficiency and anemia. does it right.”
It takes some time for iron deficiency symptoms to develop as the body uses the stored and recycled iron to make new blood cells. When the body is unable to provide enough iron, the red blood cells begin to die out, which is called iron deficiency.
Ram Srivastava, Director, Maharishi Ayurveda, said, “Iron deficiency is a common problem, especially in women. It is one of the major causes of anemia. It is an important mineral that helps the body. Helps in the production of red blood cells. (RBCs) containing metalloproteins, which carry oxygen molecules and nutrition to cells in the blood. A low number of RBCs means less nutritional supply and oxygenation of cells, which can lead to tissue damage. However, herbal iron supplements increase the number and quantity of RBCs in the blood and rejuvenate all the body parts and relieve symptoms like fatigue, lethargy, breathlessness and tension. Treats problems effectively. Apart from these, it can be useful for covid infected patients, who are having low Hb level and pain.”
