Do You Know: Eating certain foods together helps with nutrient absorption. If you’re eating lemon and green leafy vegetables (eg: kale) eat them together. The absorption of iron in green leafy vegetables can be increased by pairing it with lemon (which has Vitamin C).
Vitamin C has been shown to enhance the absorption of non-haem iron from plant-based food source. It captures non-haem iron and stores it in a form that your body can absorb more easily. A good thing for vegetarians and vegans for whom iron deficiency is common.
