Onions

Onions are also a rich source of iron and are therefore valuable in treating anaemia.

Soybean

Soybean, a rich source of iron is beneficial for the treatment of anaemia. But the people who have a weak digestion should take it in small quantities.

Spinach

This vegetable is a valuable source of high-grade iron. After its absorption in the system, the formation of haemoglobin and red blood cells take place. It is thus highly beneficial in building up the blood and in the prevention and treatment of anaemia.

Bengal gram

Fresh juice of Bengal gram leaves is a very rich source of iron. It is there­fore highly recommended in the treatment of anaemia. A tablespoonful of fresh juice mixed with honey should be taken.

Almonds

Almonds contain copper in organic form. The copper along with iron and vitamins acts as a catalyst in the synthesis of haemoglobin. Almonds are therefore a useful remedy for anaemia.

Sesame seeds

Sesame seeds are a rich source of iron and are therefore valuable in treating anaemia. An emulsion of the seeds is prepared by grinding and straining them after soaking them in warm water for a couple of hours. This emulsion mixed with a cupful of milk and sweetened jaggery should be given to patients suffering from anaemia.

Sunflower seeds

The flour made from sunflower seeds is one of the richest sources of iron in any food. It is therefore, highly beneficial in the prevention and treatment of anaemia.

Honey

Honey has a remarkable effect in building haemoglobin in the body. This is largely due to high iron, cop­per and manganese content of honey. Honey helps maintain the right balance of haemoglobin and red blood corpuscles.
