Iron: Information

Iron (a.k.a. ferrous sulfate, ferrous fumarate, ferrous succinate, ferrous gluconate, ferrous lactate, ferrous glutamate or ferrous glycine) is an essential mineral. Iron is necessary for the production and proper function of hemoglobin, which carries oxygen throughout the body via the bloodstream. Iron can be found in green vegetables, legumes, and meat.

Iron Deficiency and Toxicity

Iron deficiency is very common. Symptoms of anemia include weakness and fatigue. Those most at risk for developing anemia are children, menstruating young women, and pregnant women. Common causes of anemia are excessive blood loss, poor iron content in the diet, poor iron absorption, pregnancy and growth spurts. Iron deficiency must be diagnosed and treated by a health care professional, as it is very easy and dangerous to consume too much iron.

Health Benefits of Iron Supplements

Iron supplements ensure an adequate supply of absorbable iron for those individuals who require iron supplementation.

Using Iron Supplements

Use iron supplements as directed and always take with solid food for best absorption.

Side-effects and Cautions:

If you suspect you are experiencing symptoms of anemia or hemochromatosis, visit your health care provider right away for diagnosis and treatment. Consult your physician before using any dietary supplements if you are currently taking any medications, as iron may interact with other medications or drugs you are taking.
