What is Iron?

Iron is a mineral that is essential for your body’s growth and development. Along with helping the body manufacture important hormones, iron is primarily used to make two proteins: hemoglobin and myoglobin. Hemoglobin carries oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body, and myoglobin provides oxygen to muscles. 

Signs of Iron Deficiency:

Without iron, the body does not receive enough oxygen to function properly, leading to a condition called iron deficiency anemia. Signs of iron deficiency anemia can include:

  • Extreme fatigue
  • Muscle weakness
  • Shortness of breath
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Lightheadedness
  • Pale skin
  • Chest pain
  • Cold hands and feet
  • Inflammation or soreness of your tongue
  • Brittle nails
  • Strange cravings for ice, dirt, or starchy foods
  • Lack of appetite

Iron Deficiency Causes:

Some causes of iron deficiency anemia can include:

  • Iron-deficient diets, such as vegan/vegetarian or other diets low in animal products
  • Blood loss due to an accident, menstruation, peptic ulcer, hernia, colon polyp, or colorectal cancer
  • Inability to absorb iron due to an intestinal disorder such as celiac disease, which affects the intestine’s ability to absorb nutrients from food
  • Pregnancy, due to increased blood volume and the baby’s need for hemoglobin to grow optimally

Benefits of Iron Supplementation:

Supplements containing iron can also be used to top up iron levels with benefits that include:  

  • Reversal of iron deficiency anemia
  • Increased energy
  • Reduced inflammation
  • Stronger nails
  • Better circulation

Iron dosage recommendations vary widely according to age, sex, and current condition. The US National Institute of Health recommends between 0.27 and 27 mg per day.

Iron Side Effects

Iron supplements are considered to be generally safe. Some side effects may occur with extremely high doses that include:

  • Gastric upset
  • Constipation
  • Nausea
  • Abdominal pain
  • Vomiting
  • Faintness
