Iron is an essential trace mineral, and is important for the formation of haemoglobin. Haemoglobin helps transport oxygen throughout the cardiovascular system. Iron deficiency is common in teenagers and young adults, during pregnancy, and during menstruation.
The most important of iron’s functions in the body is the production of haemoglobin and the oxygenation of red blood cells. Iron is the mineral found in the largest amounts in the blood. It is essential for growth, a healthy immune system and for energy production. Iron is also needed to properly metabolise the stress-busting B vitamins. Through menstruation, women lose twice as much iron as males over the course of a month. This form of iron is non constipating.
Signs of iron deficiency: Anaemia, tiredness, fragile bones, hair loss, slowed mental reactions.
