Where Does Your Iron Come From?

Iron in cereal
    I came across a video that just floored me, posted by a guy that calls himself “The Crazy Russian Hacker”.  The title of the post is How to extract a handful of iron metal filings from your cereal, click on the link and watch it! The photo above shows Total Raisin Bran that has been blended with water. He then places a magnet on the bottom of the bag of cereal mash and shakes it around, turns it right side up and the black particles you see is the iron.  This is iron, like eating shavings from a bar of iron.  Do you think your body is going to use this??  I think not!

Herbal Iron    Dr. Christopher always taught people to get iron from food sources such as apricots, sunflower seeds, black molasses, raisins, prunes, brewer's yeast, kelp, egg yolk, grains, beets and their greens, turnip greens, dulse, and walnuts. You can also get it from herbs, Herbal Iron contains Dandelion Leaf,  Beet Root, Yellow Dock Root, Nettle Leaf and Spirulina.  Your body can easily use the iron in the herbs and food to help you stay healthy. 

    Symptoms of iron deficiency also known as anemia include: weakness, fatigue, shortness of breath, palpitations, pallor and skin disorders, vertigo, depression and memory impairment. You can read more about Dr. Christopher’s Herbal Iron and its health benefits by clicking on the link. 

    “The Crazy Russian Hacker”, went on to say that it is ok to eat this type of iron, it isn’t going to hurt you. I would say that it certainly isn’t going to help you either!  Just one more reason to get off processed junk food.  Learn how to make your own nutritious granola on our blog,
