Iron is necessary to produce hemoglobin, a protein which binds oxygen & delivers it to our tissues. If your body lacks iron, it cannot create enough healthy red blood cells to properly deliver oxygen. Inadequate iron can lead to a host of health problems including: anemia, headaches, depression, weakness, fatigue, and poor appetite.
Low iron can be caused by hormonal disorders, thyroid and lymphatic disorders, liver damage, radiation. ulcers, drugs, surgery, heavy bleeding during menstruation, rheumatoid arthritis, and malnutrition.
Iron is one of the nutrients women need more of than men due to menstruation, pregnancy and lactation, however men may suffer from iron deficiency due to malnutrition as well.
Taking natural sources of Vitamin C, such as a hibiscus tea or orange juice, will further enhance the facilitation of iron absorption. This is important because herbal iron (non-heme) is usually less readily absorbed in the body. Vitamin C will increase absorption.
