Apple Cider Vinegar for Anemia
Iron-deficiency can be associated with low stomach acid, which affects one in two over 60’s. It can also result from stress or the prolonged use of antacid or acid suppressant medications. A lack of stomach acid can reduce iron absorption from food. Vitamin B12 deficiency anemia is another possible result of low stomach acid.
Eating apples could be particularly useful if you have iron deficiency anemia. Gut bacteria break down apple pectin, releasing short chain fatty acids which raise acidity and thereby boost iron absorption.
If you have iron or vitamin B12 deficiency anemia, try improving your absorption of either nutrient by drinking a glass of water containing 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar before each meal, or by adding apple cider vinegar to a dressing for a first course soup or salad.
