November 26 is Iron Deficiency Day. Iron is essential for keeping our bodies and brains healthy. It is the nutrient that helps blood move oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body, and it helps muscles store and use oxygen. Too little or too much iron has detrimental effects on the body and can lead to issues that impact our energy levels, concentration, memory, performance at work and school, cognitive development and learning and earning potential. Symptoms of low iron can include fatigue, pale complexion, dizziness, fainting, hair loss, brittle nails, headaches and heart palpitations. Affecting 2 billion people worldwide, iron deficiency may be considered our greatest nutritional challenge.
The fact is, most adults need 8-18mg of iron per day, and simply don’t get it. Fortunately, our friends at Lucky Iron Fish are working toward a solution for iron deficiency. The Lucky Iron Fish/Leaf is a clinically proven, simple and effective cooking tool that delivers a significant portion of the daily recommended dose of iron for the whole family. Made of electrolytic iron, it releases 6-8 mg of easily absorbable iron in your meals and drinks when boiled for 10 minutes with two drops of acidity. It is reusable, lasts for five years and costs $50, which is about two cents a day!
“Lucky Iron Fish is working toward solving the world’s greatest nutritional challenge: iron deficiency. Far more common than we might think, iron deficiency affects over 2 billion people worldwide, a disproportionate number of whom are women and children,” says Dr. Gavin Armstrong, PhD, Founder & CEO, Lucky Iron Fish. “When left unaddressed, the consequences of iron deficiency can be devastating, leading to other health-related complications. In addition to increasing the variety of iron-rich foods in your diet, fortifying meals and drinks with a cooking tool like the Lucky Iron Fish is proven to help improve iron levels.”
Plus, when you buy Lucky Iron Fish, you are helping undernourished communities globally. Since launching at the University of Guelph, the company, which is B Corp certified (which means it operates in a way that is sustainable, ethical and socially responsible), has worked with partners like World Vision, GlobalMedic and more to give this cooking tool to 57,000-plus families to improve their health and diet. So, this November 26, and every day, join Lucky Iron Fish on the mission to help make iron deficiency a thing of the past, one fish at a time!

I try to get iron through spinach.

Unfortunately I’m supplementing my diet with iron pills. I love my cast iron pan but I’m not much for frying foods so I’d love a lucky fish.

I try to get my daily dose of iron from chickpeas as meat is expensive but I don’t eat chickpeas every day so this would be a wonderful prize. Thank you. @soulseeker00
