An Iron Kitchen cast iron kettle may help those with iron deficiency
Iron is an essential mineral. And despite healthier diets and lifestyles, iron deficiency is still the most common nutritional disorder in the world, according to the Wolrd Health Organisation and the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention. The deficiency can lead to anaemia, whose symptoms include fatigue and irritability among others.
However, a number of studies have found that using iron teapots and cooking with iron utensils can increase the iron content in the body.
A report from the American Dietetic Association revealed that when using cast iron teapots, a good amount of iron is leached into the boiling water. This results in the tea becoming infused with iron and tea drinkers receiving a boost of iron, minerals and nutrients.
A further study by the American Dietetic Association found that cooking with cast iron can increase the iron content in food, while a report in the medial journal The Lancet stated that children fed food from iron pots had lower rates of anaemia and better growth than children whose food was cooked in aluminium pots.
Obviously those suffering from such a deficiency should seek medial attention, however, the health benefits of iron cookware have been proven and give you just one more reason to buy an Iron Kitchen teapot. To get the best iron infusion, we recommend buying the IWACHU Cast iron Kettle/teapot - Set ARARE, which is not enamelled and can be used on you stove.
