  25. 25.  Iron is responsible for transporting oxygen to cells and tissues throughout the body. It’s important for women to consume adequate iron before and during pregnancy. Pregnancy is a drag on iron stores and may cause iron-deficiency anemia in mom. To avoid health problems, experts say women should include foods rich in heme-iron, the highly absorbable form found in animal foods, and include iron-rich plant foods or iron-fortified foods along with vitamin C. Vitamin C enhances the absorption of non-heme iron. Iron
  26. 26.  Potassium is present in every cell of your body. It plays a central role in normal muscle contraction, transmission of nerve impulses, and fluid balance. Potassium even serves to promote strong bones, and it’s necessary for energy production. Adequate potassium intake hedges against high blood pressure, which creeps up with age. Potassium
