Iron is a critical substance for oxygen distribution throughout the body and for particular detoxification processes within the liver. It acts as a transport system for electrons within cells and is part and parcel of many enzyme systems. Iron-containing enzymes are responsible for such functions as steroid hormone synthesis and the control of some neurotransmitters. Approximately 70% of the body’s iron is in red blood cells.
Further, iron contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, normal functioning of the immune system and normal cognitive function.
Iron deficiency anaemia is not uncommon amongst much of the population. Most at risk are children, pregnant and lactating women and women who have very heavy menstruation. Those with celiac disease are also at risk of a deficiency.
Iron bisglycinate is a more readily absorbable form with little or no side effects such as nausea.
