Iron that comes from animal products is not good for humans because it gets stored by the body as ''iron reserves," but the human body cannot use that kind of iron properly, and it has been linked to diabetes, heart disease and other health problems (especially heme iron that's found in red meat).
Plum and prunes have the increased ability to absorb iron in the body due to the high vitamin C content in this fruit. Plums neutralize the effects of free radicals & protects against the development of health conditions like asthma, arthritis, & cancer. Studies have connected plums to cancer prevention especially of breast, gastrointestinal & respiratory tract. The antioxidants power & their phytonutrients cease the development of breast cancer cells without killing healthy cells. #dherbs
Yellow Fruits and Vegetables. Yellow foods are high in antioxidants like vitamin C. Vitamin C keeps our teeth and gums healthy, helps to heal cuts, improves the mucus membranes (like when we have colds), helps to absorb iron, prevents inflammation, improves circulation, and therefore prevents heart disease. Some of the darker ones also cross over with the health benefits of orange foods.
