Yes, I'll add to what a previous poster said. Spinach and other plants may have a high iron content, but that form of iron is not always easily absorbed by the body. Vitamin C does improve the uptake, so grab a glass of OJ or add some orange slices.

thanks for this. i'm a vegetarian and certainly lack iron. vitamin B is a big issue too. i took at look at vitamin B deficiencies and found birth control can be a factor... http://sweettater.wordpress.com/2009/08/25/birth-control-steals-your-vitamin-b/
