Most women have low levels of iron and they are not even aware of it. A woman loses 13.5mg of iron through menstruation every month. Iron deficiency can cause anemia. Studies show that anemia and iron deficiency are precursors for yeast growth . Many people suggest the use of yogurt to provide the good bacteria that will discourage yeast overgrowth. However this good bacteria cannot grow well within an iron deficient body. A good source of iron is the liver. You can also supplement by taking chelated iron that the body absorbs easily, avoid the ferrous sulfate form of iron since it causes constipation. A woman needs about 8mg of additional iron daily to avoid iron deficiency.
Low levels of vitamin B12 and folic acid, which is also a B vitamin leads to iron deficiency in the body. It is important to have a good supply of vitamin B12 and folic acid in the body to avoid anemia. Studies have also shown that selenium deficiency is a big factor that promotes yeast growth. Selenium is also a very powerful antioxidant that will boost the immune system.
