I’ve been keeping and eye on the blog roguehealthfitness.com and P.D. Mangan offers thorough and credible hypothesis with sources that reinstate Iron in the blood as one of the nasty culprits of many ailments.
At first it seemed too simple an idea to me. But I reserved my judgement and continued reading.
He goes into much greater detail. I will give you a simple break down on the idea.
Ferritin is a kind of storage in the body that holds iron. P.D. Mangan has demonstrated how Iron corelates to Pre-mature death, Inflammation, Heart disease, Aging/Wrinkles as well as Alzheimer.
Average ferritin levels are around 24 to roughly 300 per milliliters.
Keeping ferritin low is shown to correlate to better health. Ferritin is found in the body but there is no real method of secretion. Thus, there are only a few process’ that are possible to remove Ferritin (Iron) from the body.
You can either affect it inside your body or you can eliminate via Bloodletting – a very old medical system used to draw away blood and prevent illness and disease – today’s modern equivalent would be Blood donation.
Healthy Foods Polyphenols/Quercetin
There appears to be a lot of evidence to suggest that a lot of the mainstream health advice talk about foods and phytochemicals that are considered to be good for our health such as green Tea, Coffee, Curcumi, Red Wine, (Quercetin, Polyphenols etc.) actually have a mechanism which allows the human body affect Iron.
The basic premise of these health chemicals found in foods and beverages is that they bind to Ferritin and in simple terms, cancels it out.
Here are just some examples of the chemical Quercetin that are found in foods:
While there is a method of affecting the iron in your blood by the things you consume, likewise but you can affect the iron levels greatly by donating blood.
I would recommend donating blood if you want to have optimal health and removing additional iron stores found in the blood.
If you eat a lot of Red meat you are prone for risk of certain disease. It would be highly advisable if you currently have higher than average ferritin stored, one should donate blood.
I believe this a clever idea that P.D. Mangan has brought back to the limelight. Hopefully, it receives more attention
