Side effects of taking iron tablets with milk?

Calcium does not let the body to absorb the iron. Hence iron and calcium should never be mixed. Better to have calcium tablet in the night and iron in the morning.

Things to know about Iron rich foods: 1. Adding meat or seafood to a meal will increase iron absorption from eggs, dals, vegetables in that meal. 2. Calcium-rich foods in the same meal will impede iron absorption, so avoid combining iron with dairy foods. 3. Iron-rich foods absorb better in the presence of vitamin C. 4. Iron-rich vegetarian foods include lentils and other legumes (dals), beans (rajma etc), dried fruits (raisins, dates, prunes, apricots etc), leafy green veggies (broccoli, different saag/keerai varieties), millets (ragi, etc). 5. Vitamin C is in mangoes, tomatoes, pumpkin, lime and other citrus fruits, capsicum, etc. Bonus: fermenting, sprouting and soaking grains and dals hugely increases how much iron is absorbed from it. Spinach is not easy to absorb iron from. Too many chemicals in it that impede absorption, phytates, oxalates, fibre.
