Iron

 

How does it work?

Iron is an essential mineral needed for the transport and storage of oxygen around the body by haemoglobin, the oxygen-carrying pigment of red blood cells.1 Iron is also required for the proliferation of immune cells, detoxification, cellular respiration, amino acid metabolism, synthesis of nutrients, hormones, neurotransmitters, collagen and elastin.2 Iron is found in both haem (animal source) and non-haem (plant source) forms therefore a varied diet is needed to prevent anaemia.

What results can be expected?

Iron is used to rectify deficiency states (iron deficiency anaemia) due to inadequate dietary intake, pregnancy, blood loss, heavy menstruation or compromised intestinal absorption.3 Where there is deficiency, iron supplementation can improve deficiency symptoms such as lethargy, fatigue, decreased resistance to infection, brittle hair, impaired cognitive function and pallor.4 Iron is stored within the body therefore supplementation is only recommended during deficiency states to avoid toxicity.5
