Iron is called the "energy giver." It attracts oxygen and builds blood. Along with manganese and copper, it is necessary for healthy blood chemistry. Iron is stored in the blood, bone marrow, liver and spleen. Iron can be found in trace amounts in every organ.
Iron is one of the most common deficiencies in men as well as women, although women require more Iron than men because of their menstrual cycle. Without sufficient Iron, the body cannot manufacture enough new hemoglobin, the red-cell protein that transports oxygen in blood. Iron helps the body 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. Vitamin C improves Iron absorption.
