Iron plays a vital role in helping blood carry oxygen throughout your body. Without enough iron in your diet, you may feel tired, dizzy, or cold. People with a severe iron deficiency are considered anemic and may experience symptoms such as headaches or difficulty breathing.
Our bodies can not make iron; it is absorbed from the foods we eat. Leafy greens such as kale and spinach are an excellent source of iron. Kale is the main ingredient in SmoothieBox's Chocolate Smoothie Mix, and spinach is the main ingredient found in our Green Smoothie Mix.
