What food increases hemoglobin content?
Any food that contains iron and the existence of Vitamin C will increase hemoglobin. Foods such as any animal source (meat) and some vegetables usually dark leafy veges., raisins, molasses and eggs contain iron which makes hemoglobin. The body is very complicated in maintaining homeostatsis so increasing these foods does not necessarily mean hemoglobin will increase. it depends on the need for hemoglobin and how the body metabolizes these sources and the existence of disease processes in the body.

Answer 1: You can increase hemoglobin by eating green vegtables, fruits, red meats etc. that are rich in iron. The reason this increases hemoglobin is because the main oxyge…n binding component is Fe 2+ which is stopped from forming into Fe 3+ (rust) by the heme groups attached. Answer 2: Hemoglobin can always be increased by a red blood cell transfusion (in which an anticoagulant is used), but otherwise it depends on the reason for it being low. The most common cause of low hemoglobin is bleeding due to injury, heavy menstration, ulcers, etc. In this case, hypotension (low blood pressure) is likely as well as syncope (fainting). The second most likely cause is iron deficiency, and a disease related cause would be anemia. Answer 3: Though it is important to have high concentrations of hemoglobin's affinity to oxygen bears great importance, which pertains to it's confirmation (T-state, decreased affinity, R-state, increased affinity), pH, Temperature, as well as Gibbs free energy favorability. The affinity and the correct cooperativity are best controlled by exercising (generally aerobic), high altitudes, blood transfusion, as well as, decreased C02 or CO intake which has >200x the binding affinity of oxygen. Constipation is the major cause for lowered levels of hemoglobin. You can avoid constipation with regular eating habits of wholesome foods, fruits and vegetables. It is recommended that you eat five times a day, three meals and two snacks, with 40 percent of calories from carbohydrates, 30 percent from protein, and 30 percent from unsaturated fats. This can include: three fourths vegetables and one part cereals. Curry leaves known as 'amla' are known to increase hemoglobin levels. Breathing exercises, with proper guidance, can also help.

For making haemoglobin we should eat iron rich food or fruit
There is a Advocado type fruit called a Carao from Puerto Rico
Most of the green leafy vegetable are rich with iron content.
Foods that are rich in Iron such as seafoods, chicken, liver, beef, red meat, turkey, fish,and pork. Eggs, dark vegetables, green leaves, dried fruits, nuts and beans are only… few to mention.
Red meat (like steak)
A minor increase in hemoglobin helps the blood carry oxygen better. This is common and a normal accommodation in people that live at high altitude. An excessive increase in… hemoglobin causes the disease hemochromatosis, the typical treatment prescribed for hemochromatosis is frequent blood donations to reduce the level of hemoglobin. Untreated hemochromatosis can cause iron deposition in several organs (including the brain) resulting in damage to those organs and worsening of symptoms of various other illnesses that might be present.
