General information about the ingredients used in this supplement product:

(This is NOT product specific and is only listed as educational material)

Iron is fundamental to the health of the human body, and is present in every human cell, principally linked with protein to form the oxygen carrying molecule hemoglobin. Dietary iron is found in two forms in the nature heme iron and non-heme iron. Heme iron is present only in animal flesh, as it is a derivative from the hemoglobin and myoglobin in animal tissues. Non-heme iron is present in plant foods and dairy products. Iron absorption is amplified when there is an improved physiological need for iron which occurs in children during the growing stages and during pregnancy periods and lactation. Iron absorption is decreased in persons with low stomach acid (hypochlorhydria), a condition which is common in the elderly and those who use antacids frequently. Vitamin C helps increase the absorption of plant-food iron. Copper is another prime nutrient for supporting iron metabolism.

Functions of Iron:

Iron works as the hub of the hemoglobin molecule, which is the oxygen carrying constituent of the red blood cell. Red blood cells pick up oxygen from the lungs and distribute the oxygen to tissues all over the body. The capability of red blood cells to hold oxygen is accredited to the presence of iron in the hemoglobin molecule. Iron also performs a very important role in the production of energy as an element of several enzymes, including iron catalase, iron peroxidase, and the cytochrome enzymes. Iron is also involved in the construction of carnitine, a nonessential amino acid which is significant for the proper utilization of fat. The function of the immune system is also reliant on sufficient iron.

Symptoms of Iron Deficiency:

The deficiency of iron causes microcytic and hypochromic anemia, a condition denoted by under-developed red blood cells that are deficient in hemoglobin, thus dropping the oxygen carrying capacity of red blood cells. People with iron deficiency may have the symptoms of fatigue, weakness, loss of stamina, decreased ability to concentrate, increased susceptibility to infections, hair loss, dizziness, headaches, brittle nails, apathy, and depression. Those with poor iron intake may also express an strange eating behavior called pica, in which they eat inappropriate and or unpalatable materials such as dirt, clay, laundry starch, charcoal, and/or lead paint chips. In children, iron deficiency is also associated with learning disabilities and a lower IQ.

Good Food Sources of Iron:

Dietary sources of iron are chard, spinach, thyme, turmeric, romaine lettuce, blackstrap molasses, tofu, mustard greens, turnip greens, string beans, shiitake mushrooms, beef tenderloin, lentils, Brussel sprouts, asparagus, venison, garbanzo beans, broccoli, leeks, and kelp.
