Iron is our most abundant essential trace mineral, necessary to most life forms on the planet. We need iron as the central component of our oxygen-transporting haemoglobin molecules. Iron anaemia, when haemoglobin-containing red blood cell production declines, causes pallor, weakness, poor immunity and fatigue.
Iron deficiency is more common in pregnant or heavily menstruating women, female athletes, teenagers experiencing a growth spurt and the elderly.
Studies show that around 40% of New Zealand women of childbearing age are iron deficient. Iron-deficient mothers are more likely to produce infants who are susceptible to iron deficiency.
Iron is an important micronutrient in energy production, protein metabolism and immune system health.
Fatigue, irritability, recurring infections, shortness of breath, headaches, chest pain and heavy menstrual bleeding can all indicate dietary iron deficiency. Cognitive impairment, developmental delay and hair loss can result if iron deficiency is not addressed.
Iron Side Effects
A few adjustments to make, but it works!
I have had low ferritin for years and while my last test wasn't my lowest, I still figured I should opt for a stronger supplement with a B complex included. It has made a big difference!
My only gripe is that it has caused some constipation and changed bowel habits. I've had to adjust my fibre in my diet accordingly, but it's something I'm willing to do because the increased energy I'm having is so great. Overall, a good supplement for those needing to up their ferritin quickly, but probably not for those people sensitive to constipation from iron tablets.
gentle on the system
Works really Good!
I ordered this tablet two months ago and still the bottle isn't over! If I don't take them for a day or so I do find a difference. Didn't have any constipation or nothing! Works really well, and Health post commendable service
