Hemoglobin is a protein present in our body that’s rich in red blood cells. It’s responsible for carrying oxygen from your lungs to the other parts of the body. The red color of the blood is due to the presence of iron content. Hemoglobin is measured in grams per deciliter. The normal level of hemoglobin in an adult male is 14 to 18 gm/dL and in an adult female is 12 to 16 gm/dL. However, these levels fall with increasing age. But, there are home remedies to increase hemoglobin.
This protein is responsible for the shape and health of red blood cells. Therefore, lowering levels indicate decreasing amounts of red blood cells. People who live at higher altitudes have low levels of hemoglobin due to lack oxygen levels. And low hemoglobin level can lead to anemia. So, here are the ways to increase hemoglobin and avoid anemia.
