    Iron deficient Vegans and Vegetarians should observe should observe following to make iron more bioavailable.1. For each milligram of dietary iron, include about 8 milligram of Vitamin C.
    2. Do not cook smoothie, or the ingredients for smoothie. Vitamin C degrades with exposure to air and temperature.
    3. Avoid taking dairy, whole-grain and caffeine products one hour before and one hour after you take the high-iron smoothie. Example: Tea, Coffee, Milk, Cheese, Yogurt, Whole grain foods (e.g., Roti).4. High-iron smoothie makes excellent breakfast. Empty stomach provides best bio-availability. Eat regular breakfast 20 minutes to one hour after taking the the vegetable smoothie.
