Five ways to boost your iron level before giving blood


Giving blood saves lives, but you must have a healthy amount of iron in your blood before you can help someone else by becoming a donor. Below are some ways to help you boost your iron level before giving blood:

  1. Eat a well-balanced diet every day.
  2. Iron-rich foods include lean red meat, chicken and seafood; garbanzo, kidney and soy beans; fortified cereals, bagels and lentils; leafy green vegetables such as spinach and kale; and nuts and seeds.
  3. Citrus fruits and juices and other foods high in vitamin C help your body absorb iron.
  4. Coffee and tea reduce the amount of iron absorption and should be avoided during meals.
  5. Donating blood reduces iron stores in your body, so it’s important to replace the iron lost between donations to maintain good health.


Note: Iron can be harmful in high doses. Supplements should be taken only as directed. If you have any questions, please call 310-423-5346.
