We at Vita Living know that iron is necessary to the survival of human beings. Hemoglobin is the protein that carries oxygen in red blood cells. Iron is a very important component of hemoglobin and assists with the transport of oxygen throughout the body. Additionally, it assists with the storing of oxygen within the muscle cells. Iron deficiency causes the body to be unable to produce adenosine troposphere (ATP). This is the main source of energy for the body. A number of other important processes, including the production of DNA, are dependent upon proper iron levels in the blood. People who are truly deficient are diagnosed with anemia and experience depression, fatigue, problems learning and impaired functioning of the immune system. For this reason, people whose blood work shows iron deficiency should supplement according to doctors orders.

Iron deficiency is fairly common and affects about seven hundred million people around the world. People who are most at risk are older people, pregnant women, women during menstruation, teenage girls and children. It is worth noting that of the two kinds of iron naturally available, heme iron found in meats is more easily absorbed by the body. Non-heme iron found in plants is not as easily absorbed, and so people who do not eat meat may experience problems with iron deficiency unless they supplement.

Excessive iron consumption can cause stomach upset and damage to the liver and intestines. Additionally, excessive iron can lead to a stroke and may cause complications for pregnant women. Furthermore, there are quite a few medications and supplements that may interfere with iron absorption. For this reason, it is important to consult with a health care professional before beginning supplementation. In this way, patients can be sure of taking the right type of iron in the right amounts and eliminating any foods or medications that may prevent absorption.
