What is Iron?
Iron is a mineral that is essential for human health. It is found in every cell of the body and is required for a wide range of bodily functions, including the production of hemoglobin in red blood cells.
Why is Iron important for the body?
Iron plays a crucial role in the transport of oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body. Hemoglobin, which is made up of iron and protein, is responsible for carrying oxygen in the blood. Iron is also necessary for the production of myoglobin, which helps muscles store and use oxygen.
What are the main benefits of Iron?
There are many benefits associated with Iron consumption, including:
Iron deficiency is one of the leading causes of anemia, a condition in which the body lacks enough red blood cells to carry oxygen to the tissues. Adequate iron intake can help prevent anemia and its associated symptoms, such as fatigue, weakness, and shortness of breath.
Boosts energy levels
Iron helps to deliver oxygen to the body's cells, which is essential for energy production. Adequate iron intake can help improve energy levels and reduce feelings of fatigue.
Strengthens the immune system
Iron is necessary for the proper functioning of the immune system, helping to fight off infections and illnesses.
Promotes brain function
Iron is important for cognitive function, including memory and concentration. Iron deficiency has been linked to cognitive impairment and poor academic performance.
Regulates body temperature
Iron plays a role in regulating body temperature, helping to maintain a healthy body temperature even in cold environments.
Other benefits include:
- Supports healthy pregnancy
- Supports healthy skin, hair, and nails
- Helps with muscle function
- And more...
How and when should it be consumed?
Health Canada Recommended Dose: Adults: 1 Capsule(s) 1 - 4 time(s) per day. Take a few hours before or after taking other medications. Take with food.
Dietary sources of Iron
- Red meat, poultry, and fish
- Legumes, such as lentils, chickpeas, and kidney beans
- Spinach and other leafy greens
- Fortified cereals and breads
What can it be stacked with?
If you're looking to stack your iron supplement with other products for added benefits, there are a few options to consider. For overall immune system support and increased absorption of iron, Vitamin C is a great choice. B vitamins, such as Vitamin B12 can also be beneficial in supporting healthy red blood cell production. If you're looking to support energy and reduce fatigue, combining Iron with CoQ10 can be effective. And for those looking to support their bone health, adding Vitamin D and Calcium to your iron supplement stack can be helpful. As with any supplement stack, it's important to consult with a healthcare professional to determine the right combination and dosage for your specific needs.
