Brief Answer:
Pomegranate and Iron and Folic acid Supplements

Detailed Answer:
Hi young man.
Thanks for your query and awareness.

Yes, this is on a lower side for the males.
The best way is to take Pomegranate as a whole and/ or in the form of juice. We have found this to be very effective.

To have Iron supplements with Folic acid is another best way. But see that you do not have to have a load of it. You an take it for one and half month. Check the hemoglobin and can maintain by more green leafy vegetables and Pomegranate.

All the best.

Brief Answer:
With Hb of 12.9- Take Pomegranate only

Detailed Answer:
Most welcome.
Iron can not be prescribed online.
Please get a prescription from your local Doctor.
With Pomegranate one glass juice a day , your need to take extra iron may not be there. It has no side effects like medicinal form of iron in the form of constipation or loose motions, gastritis. Pomegranate is totally natural form of iron which is easily absorbed by the intestines.

I would advise you to start Pomegranate.
Recheck your hemoglobin every 15 days till it reaches 15 or so and you can reduce the frequency.
