Today I’d like to discuss the health benefits of iron. Most people don’t think about this key mineral. Why? Because most blood tests show that people are usually in the normal range for this vital mineral. But low levels of iron can show up in other ways.
Take myself for example. I supplement my diet with a lot of good quality products. And I usually have spinach every day. Spinach is one of the top foods for getting iron into you diet.
But about a month ago my wife asked me how I slept. I said fine. But she said my legs jerked about every 20 seconds. And it went on for about 2 hours. It kept her up but I didn’t even know I was doing this.
My wife did a Google search and found that this could be a symptom of low iron levels.
She encouraged me to start taking an iron supplement and that’s what I did. While what I share is anecdotal the following occurred:
The leg twitching has stopped.
And I have less fatigue during the day, especially in the evening.
