      References, please. Last I knew, the only iron not really available was the stuff that rubs off of your cast iron cookware, but I do not even know if that still holds or not.

        I'd like to see any references to that as well, if you please, if possible. Anecdotally, my oldest paleo bud back in Cali, was a frequent fond forager of found nettles & he was told to lay off them when his blood iron levels were sky high. He didn't eat much red meat hardly ever, nor any other particularly iron-rich foods at all, just stinging nettles as a passion, were singled out as his irony culprit. He postured, pleaded & protested but in the end, ceased his particular passionate poaching & his iron levels normalized some time later. Double-blind study, no, but true alliterative story...well yes.

            Livestrong says: What Nutrients Aid In The Absorption Of Iron In The Human Body? | LIVESTRONG.COM

            Heme iron (animal based ) absorbs about 25-35% but non heme (plant based) only absorbs about 3%.

            You can improve this a bit with extra vitamin C.
