Vitamin C helps Iron absorb better into the body.
When my 1st child was almost 1 year he was severely low in iron. His Dr told me to give him OJ with his iron supplement. Also he said there is vitamin c in ketchup so I started giving it to him with every meal so the iron in the meat would absorb better. I created a monster though cause he is almost 10 years old and he loves ketchup
I have noticed I can't drink much OJ. It makes me get D and cramps sometimes. i can have some with food though. if I try to have it alone I get into trouble.
