Some of the first signs of low blood count are feelings of weakness, fatigue, and sluggishness. The lower your blood count is, the worse circulation you have. In addition to the issues already noted, you’ll feel extra cold on winter days.
What can one do to improve circulation and blood count? Popping a pill is always an option, but going the natural route is a much better choice. The grocery store, farmers market, and your yard are full of ingredients that can vastly improve your blood count and circulation. One of the best among them is a syrup with beets and carrots as main building block, and several fruits to take things to another level.
- 2 lbs of beetroot
- 1 lb of carrots
- 17 oz honey
- 1 lemon
- 3 oranges
- 2 sour apples
Chop the fruits and veggies into small pieces and add them to a blender or food processor. Squeeze the oranges and the lemon and add to the mix, and at the end, add the raw honey.
Blend all the ingredients until you get smooth beverage (the honey should be finely dissolved). Try it; if you don’t like the taste, add a few more oranges to the mix. The sole purpose of the oranges is to provide the liquid environment and taste for the syrup.
Fill a glass bottle with the syrup. You’ll get approximately 2 liters (2 quarts) of the syrup, which will last for 15 days and probably longer. Store the syrup in a dark and chilly place. Consume the drink every morning on an empty stomach (half a glass is more than enough) for 15 to 20 days. You can consume the syrup twice a year.
