Exercise-Induced Anemia for people who workout

People who workout (or train specifically) can endure an iron depletion process called “Sports Anemia” or exercise induced anemia – nothing to be alarmed about if you’re working out bc a result of exercise (especially in the heat) causes the volume of water in your blood to increase and thus lowers your concentration of red blood cells.  Red blood cells are the most important hematocrit in our blood bc they carry oxygen to the muscles that we utilize when you exercise for lowering body fat.

People who exercise regularly and then go to give blood may test low for iron, nonetheless the end result of low iron is to increase iron supplementation in your diet.  Here some good food sources to consider.
