Everyone knows about Hemoglobin which is present in red blood cells, and these cells play a significant role to carry oxygen around the body. and also Hemoglobin is an iron-rich protein.
Along with the transportation of oxygen, Hemoglobin takes out carbon dioxide out of the cells and into the lungs and when we exhale we release carbon dioxide in the air.
So, in this article, we will tell you how to increase the Hemoglobin.
Always give the first priority to that one which is the base to keep healthy and strong”
What causes occur if Hemoglobin level drop?
It Is very necessary to maintain Hemoglobin level in the body and if we drop the level of Hemoglobin then due to this we face many situations such as.
Symptoms of Low-Level Hemoglobin
- Fast Heat beat
- Weakness in the body
- Find difficulty in breathing, talking, walking, and also climbing stairs
- Chest Pain
- Feet and hands swelling
- Shortness of breath
- Poor appetite and rapid heartbeat.
And if the level of Hemoglobin decreases significantly, then you can suffer from the problem of anemia.
Common causes of anemia include:
- Deficiency of iron and poor level of nutrients such as vitamin B-12, or folic acid (also known as folate) in the diet.
- adequate reduction of blood
- leukemia cancers which affect the bone marrow
- kidney disease
- liver disease
- Sickle cell anemia, a genetic disorder that causes a reduction in red blood cells and Hemoglobin
Low Hemoglobin levels Due to:
- lung disease
- Excessive or extreme physical exercise
What should the proper level of Hemoglobin in the body?
It is necessary to maintain the proper level of Hemoglobin.
The general levels are: Male: 13.8 to 17.2 grams per decilitre (g/dL) or 138 to 172 grams per litter (g/L) Female: 12.1 to 15.1 g/dL or 121 to 151 g/L.
What level of Hemoglobin is considered anemic?
Mild anemia corresponds to a level of Hemoglobin concentration of 10.0-10.9 g/dl for pregnant women and children under age 5 and 10.0-11.9 g/dl for nonpregnant women. For all of the tested groups, moderate anemia corresponds to a level of 7.0-9.9 g/dl, while severe anemia corresponds to a level of less than 7.0 g/dl.
Who Needs More Iron?
Everyone needs iron but when women start up with the menstrual cycle, lose lots of blood and you can say lost more iron in every day, So in this case, she needs more iron to protect themselves from illnesses.
and many women are facing the problem with Iron deficiency. And due to the Insufficient iron can lead to anemia.

- Dry Fruits such as dates, almonds, pumpkin seeds, raisins, prunes.
- Also, include amla and jaggery
- Red meat, such as beef.
Method to increase Hemoglobin
1.Include Iron-Rich Foods in diet
The Person whose Hemoglobin level is low, iron-rich food can increase that level. because iron boost the production of blood and also help to produce new red blood cells, and according to the National Anemia Action Council, Iron deficiency is the most common cause of low Hemoglobin levels.
So, we have suggested some Good food and fruits for you which increase your Blood level.
Vegetarian Food:- Get enough iron
3.Vegetables- spinach, tofu, asparagus, broccoli, green peas, tomatoes, bell peppers, cauliflower, potatoes, fenugreek leaves, beans,

They do so by protecting cells from harmful molecules called free radicals.
3.Intake of Folic Acid or Folate
Folic Acid also is known as Folate which is a type of Vitamin B, responsible for the production of Hemoglobin and also essential, So, if a person does not get enough folate, red blood cells do not get mature due to this people face the folate deficiency anemia and low level of Hemoglobin.
Best Source for Folic Acid
- Green vegetables like Spinach, Broccoli
- Chicken Liver
- black-eyed peas, kidney beans
- Beetroot is a good source to increase red blood cells count as well as rich in iron, potassium, and fiber.
4. Eat Pomegranate in a day

Also, Drink one glass of juice every day in order to increase the blood level.
