Iron supplementation can increase I Q of your children


In observational studies anemia and iron deficiency are associated with cognitive deficits , suggesting that iron supplementation may improve cognitive function.

Iron can improve cognitive domains: concentration,intelligence ,memory, psychomotor skills and scholastic achievement.

If the child is anemic, iron supplementation can improve I Q by 2.5 points.


So if your child is poor in studies or getting worse in scholastic performance consult your pediatrician for signs of anemia and iron deficiency .
(ref . Nutritional journal jan2010 )

iron supplement tablets are not advisable to the children below 10 years.. we can give 2 r 3 three dates every day to them.

Drumstick leaves( murungaikeerai) is a best iron rich food ...at least weekly once we should give to our kids..

Amla is also a high iron rich food .. if we take an amla daily for 30 days, we can see our HB level will be increased...

thanks for sharing this useful information sumathi...
