Iron (18 mg daily): For your blood Women need iron to prevent anemia. Anemia occurs when your body doesn't have enough hemoglobin in its red blood cells to provide oxygen to your tissues. It can cause fatigue and headaches. It's especially important to get enough iron if you're of a menstruating age. Where to get it: Meat (a 6-ounce steak gives you about a third of your daily allowance), poultry, beans, eggs and tofu.
Bonus tip: Pair iron with foods that contain vitamin C such as kiwi, grapefruit, oranges, broccoli and peppers to help boost iron absorption.
