  • Probably. You can try taking a papaya enzyme (without pineapple).


    Here is a link to food based sources of iron: www.soystache.com/iron Be sure to eat a vitamin C source with your iron source; the C increases the absorbtion of the iron.

  • And dairy can leach iron from your body, so don't have diary with iron...
