Iron is an essential mineral with a number of important functions in the body, for example it is an key part of haemoglobin (the red pigment in our blood) that allows it to carry oxygen around the body. Good food sources include liver, red meat, beans & brown rice.
A popular supplement for women during their monthly-cycle
Women in particular may benefit from supplementing with Iron because of the risk of Iron deficiency through red blood cells lost during menstruation.
Iron is one of the most common nutrients at risk of deficiency amongst all ages and both sexes. Women of childbearing age are especially at risk and in the UK official data shows that 89% of young women have a daily intake which is less than the Nutrient Reference Value (NRV) of 14.8mg daily. This is believed to be due to a growing move towards vegetarian diets and less consumption of red meat.
