What is Iron?

Iron is an essential mineral that's mainly found in all human cells. The body needs this mineral to make hemoglobin, the protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body. Iron is also important for energy production and a healthy immune system.

What does Iron do for the body?

Iron is a mineral the body needs to function properly. It helps the body make red blood cells, which carry oxygen throughout your muscle tissue, organs, and brain. This mineral is also important for the development and function of the brain and nervous system. It enhances your energy and improves your cognitive function.

What foods contain Iron?

Some good sources of heme Iron include beef, pork, lamb, poultry, and fish. Good sources of non-heme Iron include legumes, nuts, seeds, whole grains, and leafy green vegetables.

How do you increase Iron levels quickly?

The best way to increase your Iron levels fast is to start taking oral Iron supplements and eating Iron-rich foods along with Vitamin C-rich foods. This helps with the absorption of Iron.

Iron and Health Benefits

Research has shown several health benefits to consuming enough Iron stores. The best way to enjoy these health benefits is to get the daily recommended amount of Iron through food and supplements.

  • Produces Hemoglobin:
    Hemoglobin is a protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen throughout your entire body. Iron is necessary for the production of hemoglobin which plays a critical role in your body's metabolic processes.
  • Transports Oxygen in the Body:
    Hemoglobin binds to and transports oxygen throughout the human body. In order for your cells, muscles, and organs to function optimally, it needs a sufficient amount of oxygen. Without it, your body may experience weakness, fatigue, gastrointestinal upset, and reduced aerobic performance.
  • Support Cognitive Function:
    If you are low in Iron, you may experience difficulty paying attention, trouble learning new things, and poor memory. This is because Iron is also necessary for the production of neurotransmitters, which are the chemicals that help your brain cells communicate with each other. A lack of Iron can lead to a shortage of neurotransmitters, which can impair your cognitive function.
  • Produces Energy:
    Without sufficient oxygen throughout your body, you will start to feel fatigue. Red blood cells need oxygen in order to avoid side effects like weakness or low energy levels. Iron availability ensures you have enough energy to go about your day.
  • Regulates Body Temperature:
    When functioning optimally, your body has the ability to generate and store heat. Low Iron levels can make it more difficult for your body to regulate its temperature.

Iron Deficiency


What Causes Iron Deficiency?

Iron deficiency is the most common nutrient deficiency in the world, affecting an estimated 2 billion people. The main cause is a lack of Iron in your diet and blood loss.

  • Lack of Iron in diet: If your body doesn't regularly get Iron from your diet, it can cause a deficiency and make it difficult to absorb the mineral.
  • Blood loss: This can cause a decrease in Iron and result in Iron-deficiency anemia.
  • Pregnancy: Pregnancy can cause the body to use up Iron stores as a source of hemoglobin for the fetus.
  • Inability to absorb Iron: Intestinal disorders, such as celiac disease, can prevent your body from absorbing nutrients from digested food.
Low Iron Symptoms

Without enough Iron, the body can't produce enough red blood cells, which can lead to a condition called anemia. Symptoms of anemia can include fatigue, shortness of breath, pale skin, and rapid heart rate.

  • Fatigue: Those who suffer from an Iron deficiency are more likely to experience extreme fatigue throughout the day.
  • Rapid heart rate: A rapid heart rate or palpitations is common for those with an Iron deficiency.
  • Cold hands and feet: People with Iron deficiency anemia suffer from poor blood circulation which can cause cold hands and feet.
  • Brittle nails: An Iron deficiency can make your nails brittle or cause your nails to cave inward due to low ferritin levels.
  • Poor Appetite: Those with Iron deficiency anemia may also experience a loss of appetite, especially infants and children.
When To See a Doctor

If you or your child develop any signs or symptoms that could suggest Iron deficiency anemia, it's essential to see a doctor right away. Iron deficiency anemia is not a condition to self-diagnose or treat, so it's always best to seek professional help instead of taking Iron supplements on your own. Taking too much Iron can be dangerous because it can build up in the body and cause liver damage and other complications.

    What To Look For in an Iron Supplement

    The nutritional value of Iron is only amplified by working with other nutrients like Vitamin C. However, not all Iron supplements are made the same. Here are some important factors to consider when choosing an Iron supplement.

    • Daily Intake: The recommended dietary allowance of Iron you get from both supplements and food consumption is 8mg for adult men and 8-15 mg for adult women. Pregnant and breastfeeding women need up to 27 mg. Learn more
    • Type: Iron supplements come in different types and forms. The most common in capsule form is from Ferrous Bisglycinate. Learn more
    • Pairs Well With: Vitamin C helps with Iron absorption. It also boosts the absorption of non-heme Iron thanks to the ascorbic acid. Learn more
    • Quality: Choose products that have third-party certifications for safety and quality, like the U.S. Pharmacopeial Convention (USP) or NSF International to ensure you're getting the amount of Iron on the label without any unwanted ingredients or additives. Learn more
    • Manufacturing Process: Look for products that come from brands that adhere to the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMPs). Learn more

    How much Iron should I have per day?

    The recommended daily intake of Iron for adult men is 8 mg per day, while Iron supplements for adult women can range greatly from 8 mg to even 27 mg for pregnant or breastfeeding women. Consult your doctor to find what levels are right for you.

    What are the three stages of Iron deficiency?

    Iron deficiency goes through three stages. The first stage is when there's not enough Iron stored in the body. Storage depletion can cause fatigue, weakness, and shortness of breath. The second stage is when the body can't produce enough red blood cells. This stage can cause anemia, pale skin, and feeling cold all the time. The third stage is when the body starts to eat away at its own tissues. During this stage, iron deficiency can cause damage to the heart, liver, and other organs.
