Foods that nourish blood and promote healthy hair, nails and skin


Blood quality is important. Blood needs to be rich in nutrients, at the right temperature, with the correct amount of water inside it. Blood can become depleted because of  blood loss, poor nutrition, too much stress, too much physical activity or too much heat. All these and other factors can affect the quality of the blood.

These foods deeply nourish, moisten and enrich the blood, they are nutritious, and tend to be dark in colour.

Oats, rice, wheat bread – energize the stomach, enable efficient digestion
Beetroot, sweet potato, kale, spinach – rich vegetables that nourish blood
Berries, dates, figs, avocado – tonics, berries detoxify
