The mineral iron is essential for many enzymes, enzyme function and is important for growth in children as well as resistance to disease. Iron is required for a healthy immune system and for energy production. Additionally, Vitamin C can increase iron absorption by as much as 30 percent.
Iron deficiency symptoms include brittle hair, nails that are spoon shaped or that have ridges running lengthwise, hair loss, fatigue, pallor, dizziness, and anemia.
Perhaps the most important function of iron is its production of hemoglobin and oxygenation of red cells. For this reason iron is the mineral found in the largest amounts in the blood.
When women cycle, they lose up to 85% of the hemoglobin in their cells. This lack of hemoglobin, or lack of oxygen, is what causes the fatigue, headaches, cramps, etc. that are associated with menstruation.
Recommended for women and any one suffering from any type of iron deficiency or anemia.
