The smoothie for people with high risk Iron Deficiency Anemia and Iron Deficiency Anemia
Yield: 2 serving (about 8 ounce each)
1/2 cups spinach
1 cup black strap molasses
1 cup of rice milk

1. Place all ingredients in a blender and puree about 1 minute
2. Blend on high speed about 1 minute or until the mixture is thick and the ice is well crushed. Add more green tea drink if needed
3. Serve immediately

The finding the natural ingredients for treatment of iron deficiency anemia is considered as a dream of many scientist to replace the long usage adverse effect of conventional medicine to other organs in the body. Unfortunately, many compounds found effective in initial studying failed to confirm the potential in large sample size and multi center.

Most people understand that anemia is caused by iron deficiency in the bloodstream, but in reality anemia is characterized by deficiency in the hemoglobin of the red blood cells diminishing the ability of the blood to transport oxygen to our cells and to remove carbon dioxide.
Recent studies suggested that chronic consumption of the combination of spinach(1) may be beneficiary to reduced symptoms for patients with iron deficiency anemia.

Spinach is an edible flowering plant in the genus Spinacia, belongs to the family of Amaranthaceae and native to central and southwestern Asia. It is considered as a healthy plant containing vary vitamins and minerals. According to the Department of Food Science, Food Science Building,heme iron found abundantly in spinach is recognized as a highly bioavailable source of iron suitable for treatment of iron deficiency anemia(1).
In the comparison of total iron from meat, spinach (Spinacea oleracea L.) and meat-spinach in anemia and non anemia rats, suggested that the iron absorption average is lower in spinach consumption in the severely anaemic, mildly anaemic and non-anaemic rats(2).
The comparison study conduced by Utah State University said,"between food and FeSO4 iron due to coprophagy may be explained based on two gastrointestinal nonheme iron pools, complexed and highly soluble"(3).

Molasses is the juice is boiled to concentration which promotes the crystallization of the sugar, made by extracting from the canes, usually by crushing or mashing, after the sugar cane plant is harvested and stripped of its leaves. The concentration of this first boiling and of the sugar crystals is first molasses, which has the highest sugar content.
In the comparison of the absorption of iron from grape molasses (GM) and ferrous sulfate (FS) by the Technical University showed that grape molasses is an effective iron source as ferrous sulfate (FS) in preventing iron deficiency anemia in infancy(4).
Dr. Tunuguntla A, and Dr. Sullivan MJ. said," Black strap molasses for the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease-associated anemia"(5).
