I was anemic few years back though I used to take lots of greens and iron rich food. Someone told me that Iron and calcium if taken together, only one will get absorbed and for me Iron was not absorbed. I used to take greens with curd and dates with milk. Is that the real reason? Is it true that calcium and iron should not be taken together ?
