Some people diagnosed with Parkinson’s have an iron deficiency. Iron is an essential mineral that the body needs to fuel energy. Your body uses iron to make hemoglobin, a protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen from the lungs throughout the body, and myoglobin, a protein that provides oxygen to muscles.
Iron deficiencies can obviously contribute to tremors. A natural source of iron is found in foods. This class includes images of lentils and kale, both of which have high iron content. If the deficiency is serious – which may account for low energy – should you take an iron supplement that your doctor might recommend.
