Many of us have seen our parents and grandparents pride themselves in their cast iron cookware. Many enjoy the durability of cast iron products. Many enjoy the fact that the flavor of food is enhanced by cooking with cast iron. Very few acknowledge the fact that there is actually many health benefits associated with cooking with enameled cast iron cookware. Here, you will learn the many reasons of why you should cook with enameled cast iron cookware. Durability and enhanced flavor is just the beginning. . . read on to discover more!

Iron is often an overlooked nutrient when it comes to our health. Many individuals lack the iron that is necessary for the body to function properly. When a person does not receive enough iron, they are referred to as being “anemic". There are many uncomfortable symptoms associated with this medical condition, they include the following:

  • Decrease in energy levels

  • The heart works harder to pump blood to the rest of the body

  • Complications associated with blood pressure levels

  • Skin that is pale

  • A general lack of defense in the immune system

  • Periodic Headaches

  • Problems when it comes to sleeping

    Do any of these sound familiar to you? If so, you may suffer from a general lack of iron. It has been discovered that by taking a step as small as using enameled cast iron cookware, you can actually increase the amount of iron that you receive from the foods that you prepare!

    Now, many of us who are more “modernized" prefer aluminum pots, pans, and other types of cookware. Recently, when researching this type of cookware, I discovered that there are many dangers associated with it. You can imagine my surprise when I discovered this information! The traces of metals that are used in aluminum pots and pans can actually get into the body and cause many different health problems. You can suffer from any of the following and more:

  • Toxic changes to vital organs in the body that can have a negative impact on your overall well-being

  • Troubles with the reproductive system

  • Abnormalities in the hormone production in the body

  • Development of various types of cancer

  • Potential death

  • Alzheimer's Disease

  • Dementia

    If you use this type of cookware, it is important to discover a safe alternative. One of the safest on the market today is enameled cast iron. You can rest assured when using this type of cookware that you and your family are not exposed to toxic substances that can develop into serious health problems, and ultimately result in your death.

    Each and every single day we are exposed to dangerous toxins and pollutants that can result in many serious health problems. We often associate these toxins to those that are considered to be “environmental". It is very rare that we look inside our home, and to our cookware, as a potential culprit for these problems. However, if you use anything other than enameled cast iron cookware and you have no other explanation for why you feel so terrible, this may be the leading cause.
