Iron / Magnesium


In this section of Seattle Organic Restaurants, I’m going to talk about iron and magnesium health benefits.

Iron: Iron can oxidize the red blood cells and produce myoglobin and hemoglobin. Iron can improve the body’s immune system, improve growth and produce energy. Iron deficiencies can cause poor digestion, ulcers and intestinal bleeding. Iron deficiencies usually can happen during the time women are period. The symptoms of iron deficiencies are anemia, digestive problems, fragile bones, hair loss, inflammation, brittle hair and dizziness.

Deficiencies in vitamin B6 or B12 can also cause anemia. Excessive amount of iron in the body can increase the production of free radicals and increase the need for vitamin E. Large amount of iron can also cause cancer and heart disease. Iron can be found in meat, poultry, green leafy veggies, eggs, almonds, avocados, sesame seeds, watercress, soybeans and yeast. Herbs such as cayenne, chamomile, chickweed, lemongrass, yellow duck and nettle contain high levels of iron.

Magnesium: Magnesium can increase the level of energy in the body, help with absorption of potassium and calcium and help with bone formation. Magnesium can also control the sudden changes in blood pressure. Magnesium combined with vitamin B6 can help to dissolve and reduce the risk of kidney stones.

Magnesium has also been known to prevent cardiovascular disease, reduce the cholesterol level and prevent cancer. During pregnancy, magnesium supplements can significantly lower the chances of birth defects, dizziness, muscle weakness, depression and balance the body’s PH. Magnesium deficiencies can cause PMS, nervousness, confusion, poor digestion, cardiovascular problems, asthma, kidney stones, diabetes and seizures. Magnesium can be found in most foods such as fish, seafood, meat, avocados, brown rice, yeast, green leafy veggies, garlic, grapefruit, nuts, peaches, beans, kelp, lemon, seeds, soybeans, tofu, and watercress. Herbs such as cayenne, chamomile, lemongrass, nettle, parsley, yarrow and yellow duck have also high levels of magnesium.
