More than 50 percent of women in India in the age group of 15-49 years are estimated to be anemic. A new campaign by Livogen, #RahoStrongIronStrong, aims to raise awareness around it. It aims to equip women to identify the key symptoms of iron deficiency which many tend to overlook as they seem a consequence of their daily stressful lives. These symptoms can include paleness of skin, brittle nails or hair fall, fatigue, and difficulty in concentrating, all of which can impact a woman’s health, confidence, and productivity.

Indian Olympic boxer Mary Kom, who is spreading awareness around the issue, said, “For any individual and especially for a sportsperson, both body and mind need to be fit and alert at all times. Iron deficiency can cause fatigue and disrupt focus. It is important to know the signs, and if you have the deficiency, to take steps to overcome it, so you can play the game and try to stay in the zone of peak performance.”
