Anemia is a condition in which the iron content or hemoglobin level in the blood is below normal levels. For men, normal levels = 13.5 g / 100 ml and in women = 12.0 g / 100 ml below these levels cause anemia.

Oxygen plays a crucial role in every living creature’s breathing processes, energy production, and metabolism. Hemoglobin or the iron element in the blood performs the main function of oxygen transport at the cellular level. When the hemoglobin level in the bloodstream is low; The blood will not supply the body’s cell oxygen. Thus, the lungs and heart will work longer and harder to supply the necessary oxygen.
