Q: 

what is the fastest way to boost up the haemoglobin?

A: Recent studies have shown that the level of hemoglobin in the body can be boosted by foods rich in iron. iron is responsible in determining the blood’s hemoglobin levels. When the amount of hemoglobin in the red blood cells drops below the required levels, based on the age and gender of the person, it leads to a disorder of the blood known as Anemia. There are several factors that can lead to low hemoglobin in the red blood cells. Nutritional deficiency, particularly the deficiency of iron, vitamin B12 or folic acid, is the most common cause of low levels of hemoglobin in the blood. It is a good idea to seek medical advice,...

Q: 

what will help RLS?

A: The muscles of the human body are designed to work under orders from the brain. The brain sends these orders and receives feedback through the nervous system. The nervous system itself is made up of many different nerves which conduct electrical signals to and from various parts of the body. These impulses are used to control the body and also to receive sensory information from all parts of the body. When the nervous system malfunctions, the brain will not be able to control the body effectively. Nervous system damage could cause symptoms such as numbness, shooting pains, gain and loss of sensation, lack of muscle control and, in severe cases, paralysis of the area that is affected. Restless leg syndrome is a condition where the nerves that control the muscles of...
