Iron deficiency – the problem:
Iron deficiency is a common problem. High-risk groups include menstruating women, pregnant women, babies and toddlers, teenage girls and those with chronic pain conditions including Fibromyalgia and Arthritis. Those with low Iron can develop a condition known as anaemia. This requires Iron Supplementation. It is critical that Iron Supplementation is based on the individuals Iron levels following a routine blood test. Ask your doctor to test for iron.
Iron is a critical dietary mineral that is involved in various bodily functions, including the transport of oxygen in the blood. This is essential in providing energy for daily life and Iron deficiency reduces blood oxygen, and therefore the oxygen that is delivered to cells. This often results in fatigue, tiredness and compromised immunity. Other symptoms of Iron deficiency include hair loss, weakness, irritability, and brittle nails.
The amount of iron absorbed decreases with increasing doses. For this reason, it is recommended that most people take their prescribed daily iron supplement in two or three equally spaced doses.
