What is Anemia?

Anemia occurs when your blood has a lower than normal number of red blood cells or if your red blood cells don’t have enough hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is an iron-rich protein that gives your blood its red color and helps those cells bring oxygen from your lungs to the rest of your body. If you have anemia, less oxygen is delivered to the body and as a result your organs and tissues cannot function at optimal level. Very often you will feel tired, fatigued, have low energy levels and a weak immune system.
As the role of hemoglobin is very important for leading a healthy life, it is necessary to maintain it in normal levels in your blood, which is:
  • 14 to 18 mg/dl for adult men, and
  • 12 to 16 mg/dl for adult women
These values are applicable for adults and may vary slightly among different laboratories due to their different methods and measurements.
Anemia is not a disease, it’s good news. But, anemia can be an indication of some critical diseases and that’s a very bad news. So, you want to test first along with your physician and make sure which you don’t have hemolytic anemia, sickle cell anemia or sideroblastic anemia. These types of anemia occur due to malfunctioning of your body which can be treated through proper medical intervention only. 
If everything is all right but you are still diagnosed with anemia, it is due to nutritional deficiency. You suffer from deficiency of iron, vitamin B 12 or folic acid. You should keep in mind that your red blood cells count has long gone really low and they couldn’t now deliver enough oxygen  to your body parts. Your hemoglobin, which incorporates oxygen to your diverse body parts, might also have decreased to such levels that will pose threat to your health. For this reason, you need to deliver essential vitamins and minerals to your body so to deal with this dietary deficiency anemia.

Symptoms of anemia:

Anemia is a common blood disorder and symptoms may range from mild to severe. It tends to affect women who are pregnant or experience heavy menstrual cycles as well as people with chronic diseases. Severe or unabated anemia can damage your heart, brain and other organs in your body — and may even cause death.
Anemia signs and symptoms vary depending on the cause of your anemia. They may include:
  • Fatigue
  • Shortness of breath
  • Weakness
  • Light headedness
  • Looking pale

Symptoms of severe anemia may include:

  • Chest pain, Angina, or Heart attack
  • Fainting or passing out
  • Dizziness
  • Rapid heart rate

Anemia Causes

  1. Gastrointestinal ulcers or cancers such as cancer of the colon may slowly ooze blood and can also cause anemia.
  2. Loss of blood through heavy menstrual bleeding or, wounds can cause anemia.
  3. If iron intake is limited or inadequate due to poor dietary intake, anemia may occur as a result. This is called iron deficiency anemia.
  4. Poor nutrition and deficiencies of vitamins and minerals are associated with alcoholism. Alcohol itself may also be toxic to the bone marrow and may slow down the red blood cell production. The combination of these factors may lead to anemia in alcoholics.
  5. Many common medications can occasionally cause anemia as a side effect in some individuals.
  6. Any long-term medical condition can lead to anemia.
  7. Anemia may be related to diseases involving the bone marrow.
Relying on the reason behind the drop in hemoglobin, there are certain natural home remedies that are effective in restoring it to a normal level. Here are some home remedies to increase your hemoglobin naturally.

If you want to lose weight, you may want to consider your vitamin B intake. Vitamin B and weight loss go hand in hand, but only when all forms of vitamin B are taken together. There are eight B-vitamins, which include thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), pantothenic acid (B5), pyridoxine (B6), biotin (B7), folic acid or folate (B9), cyanocobalamin (B12). The B-group vitamins are found in many foods, they are water-soluble and delicate. Extended cooking, food processing and alcohol can destroy or reduce the availability of many of these vitamins. Most of these vitamins can’t be stored (except B12 and B9, which are stored in the liver) by the body and have to be consumed regularly as part of a well-balanced, nutritious diet.  An obvious link exists between vitamin B and weight loss, but a number of myths about weight loss and the role which vitamin B plays also exist. Let's find out all the facts together and explain how vitamin B interacts with losing weight. The vitamin B complex specifically helps with weight loss because it breaks down fats, proteins and carbohydrates by restoring a healthy digestion. A healthy digestion system rids your body of toxins that can slow down functions that could inhibit weight loss. All these B-vitamins keep your metabolism running (very important for weight loss) and ensure a healthy thyroid, so any deficiencies in these can affect thyroid function and consequently affect metabolism.  The combined action of these vitamins aids weight loss by allowing the body to properly metabolize and process the foods you eat. Many studies show how effective vitamins B are for weight loss so eat your vitamins through natural sources.
