Anaemia

Did you know that the most common nutritional deficiency is anaemia? Anaemia can occur from excessive blood loss due to serious injuries, menstruation, or hemorrhoids, but most commonly it is due to a lack of iron or other nutrients in the diet.

Anaemia means that your blood lacks healthy and normal sized red blood cells. Red blood cells are responsible for delivering oxygen around our bodies and getting rid of carbon dioxide, and this is why tiredness is a common symptom for those who suffer from anaemia.
