Haemoglobin & RBC
Haemoglobin is an iron-rich protein present in red blood cells and is responsible for carrying oxygen throughout the body. It is necessary to maintain normal levels of haemoglobin in your blood for your body to function properly i.e. 14 to 18 g/dl for adult men and 12 to 16 g/dl for adult women. When the level of haemoglobin drops, it can cause weakness, fatigue, headaches, shortness of breath, dizziness, poor appetite and rapid heartbeat. If the level of haemoglobin decreases significantly, the condition may be diagnosed as anaemia and symptoms can become severe.
The most essential nutrient required to keep the haemoglobin levels in check is iron. Everyone needs iron, but people who are particularly susceptible to low haemoglobin includes menstruating women, pregnant women, growing children and patients recovering from illnesses. It is a crucial stage when a female starts menstruating, because the body is losing out on a lot of blood. Your body needs more iron at that point, so if you don’t take precautions early on – it can lead to anaemia in the future. We’ve spoken to experts and found Iron deficiency is the most common cause of low haemoglobin levels.
This is where Kadaknath eggs & meat outshines many of the traditional foods considered to be rich in iron. Besides containing superior iron content in the form of ‘heme iron’, which is easier to absorb, they also contain high levels of Folic Acid (a B-Complex Vitamin) which is required in making & regenerating of RBCs. Try it yourself and see the difference. We recommend 2-3 servings of Kadaknath eggs & chicken in a week.
