Iron is a trace mineral which is essential for the production of haemoglobin. Haemoglobin is the part of the red blood cells that absorbs oxygen from the lungs and transports and releases it around the body for all the cells to use. Iron is a component of the enzymes that play a vital role in the oxidation of food and the release of energy from these foods. If we do not have enough iron in the body it can cause iron deficiency anaemia. This is one of the most common deficiency diseases in the world. It is a more common disease in women than men, due to the monthly blood loss through periods. Symptoms can include tiredness, lack of energy and shortness of breath. Iron absorption is reduced by many factors including tea and coffee, by up to as much as thirty percent, but can be greatly increased by Vitamin C. It is advised that you leave having tea or coffee until 30 minutes after an iron containing meal, this will give the body time to properly absorb the iron. Iron is not only needed for a healthy body but also a healthy mind. In order for the brain to function properly and carry messages from one nerve to the other, there needs to be sufficient amounts of iron. Neulife Iron tablets are easy to swallow and easily absorbed by the body, an ideal choice for anyone who wants to safe guard against deficiency.
Without iron the body will be weak and the mind won't function properly.
