Iron attracts oxygen and builds blood. Along with Manganese and copper, it is necessary for healthy blood chemistry and is essential for recovery from illness. Iron is stored in the blood, bone marrow, liver and spleen, with trace amounts in every organ.
While Iron from insoluble sources has led to iron-toxicity in some people, it is nevertheless one of the most common deficiencies in men as well as women, although women require more iron than men because of their menstrual cycles. Without sufficient iron, the body cannot manufacture enough new hemoglobin-packed blood cells, (the red cell protein that transports oxygen in blood). Iron helps the body to rid itself of carbon dioxide and keeps liver tissue soft.
Iron combines with other nutrients to produce vital blood proteins and is involved in food metabolism, digestion, elimination, circulation, and helps maintain sufficiently high blood pressure. Vitamin C improves Iron absorption.
