Our expert says:
The following foods are excellent sources of iron that is easily absorbed by the human body: meat, organs like liver, fish, egg yolk and iron-fortified cereals and dried fruit. Seeing that you have been taking an iron supplement for 5 years without effect, I would strongly urge you to see a physician for a second opinion. In the meanwhile try taking Ferro-folate that is a combination of iron and folic acid. Also drink vit-C-rich juices (orange or grapefruit juice) with your iron-fortified breakfast cereals because vit C improves the uptake of iron.
