What's a Lucky (Iron) Fish?
Iron & Red Blood Cells Are Key to Good Health
Iron is needed to produce red blood cells and is a key to a healthy body. Iron deficiency can lead to anemia, which can cause severe fatigue, complications with pregnancy, heart problems such as irregular heartbeats, weakness, dizziness, impaired cognitive function and even death according to the Mayo Clinic.[i] People who are most susceptible to anemia are over the age of 65, have a family history of anemia and women who are pregnant or are still menstruating. Certain diseases — such as rheumatoid arthritis, Cohn’s disease, cancer, kidney disease, HIV/AIDS, and other chronic inflammatory diseases — also often interfere with the production of red blood cells. A diet consistently low in iron, vitamin B-12 and folate also increases your risk of anemia.[ii]
When your blood doesn't have enough red blood cells, that’s when anemia occurs. That means either your body isn’t making enough red blood cells or your body is destroying your red blood cells or bleeding us causing you to lose more red blood cells than your body can make to replace them.
There’s a way to change that…. with a simple, affordable, and effective solution anyone can use.
Why the Fish Works!
Each Lucky Fish is made from a special type of iron. The shape, size and weight are carefully calculated so the Lucky Fish releases roughly 70 micrograms after use. The key is following directions and allowing 10 minutes of boiling in acidified water. The LuckyIronFish.com website has a "Recipe Tank" for soup, tea, rice, sangria and other recipes.
How to Cook with Your Lucky Fish
Here are the three easy steps:
- Wash your Lucky Fish with soapy warm water and dry
- Boil in water or broth with 2-3 drops of citrus juice for 10 minutes, then remove
- Add ingredients & enjoy your meal!
