Are you getting enough iron in your diet? If you're not sure, you're not alone. Many people, especially those following a plant-based diet, struggle to get enough iron. But don't worry, we've got you covered with everything you need to know about plant-based iron and how Bumpin Blends can help you incorporate it into your daily routine!
First of all, let's talk about the benefits of incorporating plant-based iron into your diet. Iron is essential for carrying oxygen to the cells in our body, and it also helps with the production of collagen, a protein that helps with skin, hair, and nail health. Plant-based iron is also rich in antioxidants, which can help reduce the risk of chronic diseases.
One thing to keep in mind when consuming plant-based iron is that it's not as easily absorbed by the body as animal-based iron. But, there's an easy fix for that! Consuming plant-based iron with vitamin C can significantly boost its absorption. So, make sure to pair iron-rich foods like leafy greens, nuts and seeds, and legumes with vitamin C-rich foods like citrus fruits, bell peppers, and strawberries.
One of our favorite ways to get iron and vitamin C at the same time is by having Bumpin Blends smoothie every morning! These smoothie cubes are so easy to pop into a blender with your favorite liquid, blend then up and you have a quick, nutritious smoothie in less than 2 minutes.

We hope this information helps you to feel more confident about your plant-based iron intake, and as always, feel free to reach out if you have any further questions.
