Which food can increase haemoglobin count?
In general, iron rich foods can help increase hemoglobin in the red blood cells. An excellent listing of these foods is available at the Office of Science of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Brookhaven National Laboratory: http://www.bnl.gov/hr/blooddrive/iron-rich.asp
Please bear in mind that some foods like milk, in excess, can block the body's ability to absorb iron from foods.
