    Iron is a mineral that’s vital to your health. All of your cells contain some iron, but most of the iron in your body is in your red blood cells. Red blood cells transport oxygen from your lungs to the organs and tissues throughout your body. Iron has a role in creating energy from nutrients. It also contributes to the transmission of nerve impulses — the signals that coordinate the actions of different parts of your body. If you have more iron than is needed, it’s stored in your body for future use. The average American gets all the iron they need from the foods they eat. But there are certain situations and conditions that may make it necessary to add supplemental iron to your diet.

    Iron is a mineral that is required for our bodies to function properly. Most of the iron in our body is found in the blood as hemoglobin, which is a protein used to carry oxygen to the body’s tissues. There are two types of iron in our diets: heme and nonheme iron. Heme iron is derived from the break down of hemoglobin and is only found in animal products. Plant-based iron is referred to as nonheme iron.

    Iron deficiency anemia is caused when there’s not enough iron in your red blood cells. Without healthy levels of iron, your red blood cells cannot effectively provide oxygen to your cells and tissues. Symptoms of anemia include: •fatigue •weakness •dizziness •difficulty concentrating

    What is iron deficiency? Iron deficiency is the most common nutritional disorder in the world. It is found most often in menstruating females, pregnant women, and older toddlers. Iron deficiency can be caused by not eating enough iron, not absorbing enough iron, or excessive blood loss. When a person's diet does not contain enough iron, the iron stores in the body are used. As the iron stores become depleted, hemoglobin levels drop -- a condition known as anemia. This causes symptoms such as fatigue, a swollen tongue, suppressed immune system, decreased mental functioning, impaired social development in children, and body temperature regulation impairments. Since vitamin C enhances iron absorption, health organizations recommend ensuring that foods high in vitamin C are included in the diet. back to top ^ What is iron toxicity? Iron toxicity results when the body stores too much iron. When iron storages in the body are full, the mineral becomes deposited in organs and tissues, including the heart and liver. Iron toxicity can result in long term damage to these organs, which can result in death. Children consuming more than 40mg of iron and adults consuming more than 45 mg of iron per day are at risk for toxicity.

    we have to know that also too many iron can cause damage in many organs,like liver and brain..! it can cause bloody vomiting and the ability of this mineral to dilate the blood vessels can cause hypovolemic shock..so me as a pharmacist would like to informate that the therapeutic dose of iron deficiency is 3-6mg/kg/day
