The number of red blood cells or the amount of hemoglobin in the red blood cells is inadequate for an ample supply of oxygen to reach  the body systems.

    Supplementing with certain vitamins such as folic acid, vitamin B12 & C, minerals such as iron(but not too much) and herbs  can help the body´s production  of red blood cells.

Low production of healthy red blood cells (RBCs)

Insufficient iron, vitamin B12 and folic acid in your diet is the most common cause of anemia. The body needs iron to make hemoglobin, a protein on RBCs that carries the oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body. Hemoglobin also gives blood its red colour.

People with increased iron requirements include infants, pregnant women, and teenagers going through a growth spurt. Slow bleeding can also cause iron-deficiency anemia. Even healthy people lose a small amount of blood a day in their stool.

The cause of anemia of chronic disease is not completely understood. It is related to a decreased production of RBCs.

Individual RBCs only last about 120days and must be replaced by new ones, which are made in the bone marrow. If the marrow is destroyed or so badly damaged that it can't produce enough RBCs, it's called aplastic anemia. Radiation therapy and some medication can kill bone marrow, but the most common cause of anemia is an unknown autoimmune reaction. This occurs when your blood cells that normally protect you against disease attack your own tissue instead.

If the body is destroying cells faster than they are made, anemia will result. Old, "worn out" RBCs are mostly broken down in the spleen, which is the organ that filters the blood, checks it for infection, and removes undesirable substances. However, if the spleen is enlarged (hypersplenism) due to conditions such as liver disease, malaria, lupus, cancer or tuberculosis. An oversized spleen can trap and destroy even healthy RBCs, causing anemia. In people with severe kidney disease, anemia is caused by a combination of decreased production of RBCs, decreased RBC lifespan, and blood loss related to dialysis. Severe bleeding is usually treated with blood transfusions.

Vitamin B12, vitamin C, and folic acid are all crucial to RBC production; therefore, a deficiency in any one of these vitamins puts you at risk for anemia. To find out a good source for Vitamin B12, vitamin C, and folic acid go to our nutrients page here.
