Having low red blood cells leads to anaemia in your body that means your body is working harder to deliver oxygen in your cells and throughout your body. RBCs are the most common cells in human blood and the body produces a million of these every day. 

Red blood cells are produced in the bone marrow and circulate around the body for 120 days after which they go to the liver where it gets destroyed and then recycles their cellular components. 

Having a low red blood cell count means there is less oxygen in your body. The symptoms could be fatigue, tiredness, weakness, dizziness, shortness of breath and a fast heartbeat. Apart from running and exercising daily, these are the foods you need to add to your diet to help overcome symptoms of anaemia and increase your red blood cells count.
