Health Information

Essential Iron

Iron is found in the largest amounts in our blood and is involved in respiration, by being the main carrier for getting oxygen to all the cells in the body.

Low iron is a common problem these days. This can be due to many reasons, but the most common reasons for having low iron levels is not eating enough iron rich foods in the diet, consuming tannin and caffeine containing foods or beverages within 1 hour after meals and having an absorption problem such as with coeliac disease.

Also, women commonly have low iron, due to menstrual bleeding.

Too much iron, accumulating over the years, can occur in older men. This is often due to poor liver function. If this is the case, iron supplements must not be taken.

Most women however will need to take an iron supplement at some time in their life, due to menstrual bleeding.
