all vegetarians, some vegans and people who bleed regularly: take iron
you think you’re just kinda tired lately, you think its the late nights, the hard work, the stress, the parties, jet lag whatever. But have you been taking iron? No, because you forgot about iron and now you’re constantly and mildly anaemic.
How much iron do I need?
The amount of iron you need is:
8.7mg a day for people with no periods
14.8mg a day for people with blood everywhere
Vegetarians are the worst for no iron, if you’re both vegetarian and bleed regularly and you’re not taking iron I’m surprised you have enough energy to hold your head up to read this.
PSA brought to you by someone who FORGOT ABOUT IRON and has been really fucking tired for like 8 months now and only sorted out why last week jfc
