Iron is the mineral found in the largest amount in the blood. Iron is essential for many enzymes and is required for a healthy immunes system, and for energy production.
Iron is called the energy giver. It attracts oxygen and builds blood. Iron is necessary for health in blood chemistry, and is essential for illness recovery.
Iron is stored in the blood, bone marrow, liver and spleen with trace amounts in every organ. Iron is one of the most common deficiencies in men and women, although women require more iron than men because of their menstrual cycle.
Iron helps the body to rid itself of carbon dioxide and keeps liver tissue soft. It combines with other nutrients to produce vital blood proteins and is involved in food metabolism, digestion, elimination, circulation, and helps maintain sufficiently high blood pressure.
Because iron is stored in the body, excessive iron intake can cause problems. Unless you are diagnosed as anemic, it is not recommended that you take Iron Supplements. Do not take iron supplements if you have an infection, because the body hides iron in the liver and other storage sites when an infection is present. Taking iron at this time encourages the proliferation of bacteria in the body.
