Iron is an essential trace mineral that is supplied only in the diet. It is a constituent of Haemoglobin (the red pigment of blood) , of myoglobin ( the red pigment of muscles and other tissues) and a number of enzymes. (notably cytochromes). 75% of iron exists in red blood cell haemoglobin which carries oxygen for energy. Around 5% is stored in muscle myoglobin. Iron is an essential component of catalase, an intracellular enzyme that destroys the toxic substance hydrogen peroxide that is produced by the bod’s normal metabolic processes.
One of iron’s most important roles is building resistance to infective disease.
Iron is the most common nutrient deficiency which causes anaemia and is also important for healthy immunity and concentration.
