Everything you ever need to know about iron absorption, anemia, boosting iron as a vegan Posted by:Lindsay S. Nixon

When I was battling (and then recovering from) H Pylori, I developed anemia (primarily due to all the internal bleeding).

Taking iron supplements (even vegan ones) wasn't an option for my broken body as they are too constipating.
