According to a World Health Organisation survey, and despite the fact that iron is one of the most common elements in nature, around two billion people, mostly women and children, are suffering from anemia – iron deficiency in the blood. And when there is not enough iron, there is not enough oxygen transported to the cells.

If you suffer from a lack of iron you should try nettle, horseradish or walnut teas. These teas will improve your blood count. Like any other health problem, anemia is best treated under the supervision of a physician. Natural remedies can only accelerate the process of making iron in the body, so we have singled out six of the best natural medicines which can help you easily beat this disease:
