Capsicum

It might feel a bit weird to consume a juice that is made up of bell peppers or capsicum but this is something that really works. Capsicum is a rich source of iron and along with that has an abundance of vitamin C. Where the presence of iron in the vegetables helps in increasing the levels of hemoglobin in the body, vitamin C helps in the better absorption of the nutrient and hence fights anemia by rapidly increasing the production of red blood cells.

Carrots

When it comes to anemia, carrots are rich in iron content that when combined with vitamin C helps in boosting up the hemoglobin levels of the body. Not just iron but the presence of beta carotene in this orange vegetable also makes it a must for treating anemia and increasing the hemoglobin levels.

Green Apple

Green apples are known to be a rich source of iron and other essential nutrients that are required to increase the hemoglobin levels. Along with the abundance of iron, green apples are also a rich source of vitamin C which helps in the better absorption of iron and helps in rapid production of red blood cells. 

Where juicing can help you to cure various diseases and provide relief from several conditions, it is just an alternative therapy and not a replacement for the medical treatment.
