Anemia what is

Anemia is a relatively common condition which has a variety of causes. It is a group of signs and symptoms which occur when there is a low level of red blood cells or the amount of hemoglobin they contain, a low blood volume, or abnormally formed red blood cells. There are over 400 types of anemia, many of them very rare.

When your body's supply of red blood cells falls below normal, you are said to be anemic, and you might complain that you tire easily, or that your heart beats rapidly or skips beats, and that you become out of breath and puff and pant when you climb stairs, walk, or otherwise exert yourself. The cause of the falling number of red blood cells can be because they are being lost through bleeding, because they are damaged or destroyed, or because your body is not producing enough of them. Although there are many types of anemia, the kinds with a nutritional basis involve specific dietary deficiencies in iron, folic acid, or vitamin B12, and in cases of general overall malnourishment. Let's take a look at how nutritional supplementation can help in various anemias.
