19 Oct Lucky Iron Fish: Eat a Boiled Fish While Fighting World Anemia
This post looks a little fishy–rightfully so. However, Dr. Gavin Armstrong and his team have founded a creative way to tackle the problem of worldwide iron deficiency. When we say “creative,” we mean this looks pretty bizarre. Imagine adding an iron fish, the Lucky Iron Fish, to food you are cooking to attack this problem of iron deficiency. Iron deficiency isn’t just a third world country problem so this is worth your serious consideration. Women, athletes, vegans, and vegetarians are just some of the people who have an increased need for iron.
The Lucky Iron Fish is a palm-size cooking tool that infuses your meals with a healthy amount of natural iron to help prevent iron deficiency and anemia. You don’t have to be a master chef to understand how to use the Fish. It’s as simple as boiling the fish in 1 liter of water or any liquid or broth-based meals with 2-3 drops of acidity (citrus juice such as lemon or lime or vinegars) and then enjoy your iron-rich drinking water or food. The Fish adds up to 75% of a person’s daily requirement for iron so just boil water, add lemon, and fill your Hyro Flask. Need other ideas on how to incorporate the Lucky Iron Fish into your diet? Check out the recipe page for creative ideas. It may sound a little scary, but the Fish has been clinically tested to be safe and easy to use. Each Fish can be used daily for up to 5 years…a great investment.
Now for the origin of this Fish project–it all started with attacking the iron deficiency problem in Cambodia. Why the fish shape? The fish in Cambodia is a symbol luck. When you buy a Lucky Iron Fish, one is given to a family in need in the developing world. This is now a worldwide project which is changing lives.
So jump on the wagon and change your life while changing the lives of others. You aren’t teaching other to fish in this case; this is a case of giving fish for the good of mankind.
Get Iron. Give Iron.
