Hi. I'm Rachael Richardson, with Nutrolution in Miami Beach, Florida. In this clip we're talking about foods that are rich in iron. And iron is one of those nutrients that is in our blood, and that we need to transport all of our oxygen to all of our cells, to make everything work. So getting enough iron is absolutely fundamental. A couple of places that you can think of that you can always find iron, are any other animal tissue. So, when you think of animal tissue, anything like protein. Like fish, chicken, red meat, white meat, eggs as well, that's animal tissue as well. All of these foods contain iron, because iron is needed for all of these animals, just like it's needed in our tissue, in our blood. Another place that you can get high levels of iron, are from your leafy green vegetables, as well as your nuts and seeds. And this is because iron is rich in the soil, if the iron is rich in the soil, than the irons going to be transported into these, these produce crops, and given to you when you put together your wonderful salmon salad with toasted hazel nuts for lunch or dinner. This has been Rachael, with Nutrolution in Miami Beach, Florida.
