Iron is an essential micronutrient. Essential used in this way means that the body does not produce the nutrient; micronutrient means that the body only requires tiny amounts to function. The most important function of iron in the body is the production of hemoglobin and myoglobin (the form of hemoglobin found in muscle tissue) and the oxygenation of red blood cells.
Iron is the mineral found in the highest amounts in the blood. It is essential for many enzymes, including catalase which converts the harmful byproduct of metabolism, Hydrogen Peroxide, into water and oxygen. It also oxidizes toxins in the body such as formaldehyde, alcohols, phenols and formic acid and is important for growth.* Iron is also required for a healthy immune system and for energy production.*
Various iron deficiency anemias are quite common in the population in the United States, especially among child bearing women and adolescents. Iron is absorbed poorly from dietary sources, especially if there are even marginal deficiencies of Vitamin C, B Complex, Vitamins, transfer factors and other nutritional requirements. A deficiency in iron can lead to a serious reduction in energy and performance, both during intense short-lived exercise as well as during longer endurance activities.*
Synergy is a key factor in iron absorption and utilization. Hemoglobin levels are better maintained in the presence of Vitamins C, Folic Acid and Vitamin B12 in the methylcobalamin form.
