The spring peri­od is the time to think about increas­ing hemo­glo­bin. Accord­ing to sta­tis­tics, it is dur­ing this sea­son that the low­est lev­el of iron-con­tain­ing pro­tein in ery­thro­cytes is not­ed. Experts attribute this fea­ture to increased mus­cle work, in which part of the hemo­glo­bin pass­es into myo­glo­bin. The lat­ter is also an oxy­gen-bind­ing pro­tein. But its main task is not to deliv­er oxy­gen to organs and tis­sues, but to cre­ate reserves of vital gas in the mus­cles. Nature seems to sug­gest a solu­tion to the prob­lem for a per­son — with the first warm May days, plants appear that can increase the lev­el of hemo­glo­bin. It remains only to choose.

  1. Sting­ing net­tle

It is esti­mat­ed that 100 g of fresh leaves of this well-known burn­ing plant con­tains 41 mg of iron. And also — 0.15–0.2% ascor­bic acid. It has been exper­i­men­tal­ly proven that vit­a­min C facil­i­tates the absorp­tion of the min­er­al. When tak­en reg­u­lar­ly, sting­ing net­tle can not only restore hemo­glo­bin lev­els to nor­mal, but also increase the num­ber of ery­thro­cytes — red blood cells that deliv­er oxy­gen from the lungs to body tis­sues, and car­bon diox­ide in the oppo­site direc­tion. The main thing here is not to over­do it. An over­dose of decoc­tions and infu­sions of a burn­ing plant can cause severe blood clot­ting (net­tle leaves are rich in vit­a­min K) and dis­rup­tion of the heart. It is bet­ter to give pref­er­ence to indus­tri­al prepa­ra­tions based on a plant. In them, the con­cen­tra­tion of active sub­stances of net­tle is care­ful­ly ver­i­fied, and if the rec­om­men­da­tions for tak­ing such a side effect are fol­lowed, such a side effect is exclud­ed. It is worth pay­ing atten­tion to the man­u­fac­tur­ing tech­nol­o­gy of the drug. The ide­al option is cryo-treat­ment of a whole plant (in the instruc­tions it will be writ­ten “cryo-pow­der”). It allows you to save vit­a­mins, min­er­als and oth­er ben­e­fi­cial sub­stances of net­tle in full. In our coun­try, the drug “Net­tle P” is pro­duced using this tech­nol­o­gy.

  1. Dan­de­lion offic­i­nalis

The root of this plant is anoth­er ide­al rem­e­dy for increas­ing hemo­glo­bin. 100 g of it con­tains 90 mg of iron. Vit­a­mins B9, B6 and C help to absorb the min­er­al in the best way. All of them are also present in the dan­de­lion root. Based on it, a tablet prepa­ra­tion is pro­duced in Rus­sia, pro­duced using the tech­nol­o­gy of cry­opro­cess­ing of whole plant raw mate­ri­als. This is Dan­de­lion P. By the way, in addi­tion to the abil­i­ty to increase the lev­el of hemo­glo­bin, this rem­e­dy has a ben­e­fi­cial effect on the con­di­tion of the joints, liv­er and gall­blad­der, nor­mal­iz­ing their work.

  1. Ivan tea (fire­weed)

Iron is found in the aer­i­al part of the plant in the amount of 23 mg per 100 g. Man­ganese, cop­per, nick­el and cobalt con­tained in Ivan-tea will also con­tribute to an increase in hemo­glo­bin. The flow­ers of the plant abound in vit­a­mins B and C. More­over, the con­cen­tra­tion of the lat­ter is three times high­er than that in oranges and 6.5 times in lemons. The entire rich­est com­po­si­tion of Ivan-tea is pre­served in the tablet prepa­ra­tion “Ivan-tea P”. It is a whole plant that has been frozen at ‑175°C and then ground into a pow­der. Unlike high tem­per­a­tures, low tem­per­a­tures do not have a dev­as­tat­ing effect on the bio­log­i­cal­ly active sub­stances of Ivan tea.

  1. Pep­per­mint

The plant is a unique nat­ur­al com­plex of use­ful sub­stances that increase hemo­glo­bin. Com­pared to the pre­vi­ous­ly list­ed herbs, there is lit­tle iron in mint — only 5.08 mg per 100 g. How­ev­er, the plant has an impor­tant advan­tage: it con­tains a large amount of folic acid (vit­a­min B9) — 114 mcg per 100 g. This is about 60% of the dai­ly require­ment adult per­son. Folic acid and iron enhance each oth­er’s action and gen­er­al­ly have a ben­e­fi­cial effect on the for­ma­tion of red blood cells. A Sau­di Ara­bi­an study of rats found that the group of ani­mals fed 15% mint had the high­est increase in hemo­glo­bin lev­els. It record­ed bet­ter results com­pared to oth­er types of treat­ment.

5.St. John’s wort

A fre­quent com­po­nent of phy­tother­a­peu­tic fees to increase hemo­glo­bin is St. John’s wort. The con­cen­tra­tion of iron in it is 11 mg per 100 g. The plant also con­tains man­ganese (25 mg per 100 g), cop­per (34 mg per 100 g), nick­el (18 mg per 100 g) and cobalt (21 mg per 100 g). By the way, the name “St. John’s wort” comes from the Kaza­kh “dzher­abay” and means “heal­er of wounds.” The researchers note that the plant is non-tox­ic and does not kill any ani­mals. The mod­ern domes­tic phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal indus­try pro­duces an easy-to-take tablet form of St. John’s wort — “St. John’s wort P”. The drug will help out in cas­es where there is no time to pre­pare decoc­tions and infu­sions. You can take it with you on the road. And the use of cry­opro­cess­ing tech­nol­o­gy is a reli­able guar­an­tee that all plant sub­stances are pre­served in full.

When choos­ing a nat­ur­al rem­e­dy to increase hemo­glo­bin, it is impor­tant not to for­get that the treat­ment of iron defi­cien­cy ane­mia should begin, first of all, with the elim­i­na­tion of the cause of the dis­ease. And for its estab­lish­ment it is nec­es­sary to vis­it a doc­tor and be exam­ined com­pre­hen­sive­ly. With­out this, the treat­ment will not be effec­tive, and hemo­glo­bin will grad­u­al­ly begin to decrease again.
