Iron has the longest and best described history among all the micronutrients. It is a key element in the metabolism of almost all living organisms. In humans, iron is an essential component of hundreds of proteins and enzymes
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.
Iron has many different roles in the body. About 65 to 75 percent of the body’s iron is in the blood in the form of hemoglobin. Hemeglobin is a protein in red blood cells that transports oxygen to tissues in the body. Myoglobin, the compound that carries oxygen to the muscle cells, also requires iron. In addition, iron is involved in reactions within the body that produce energy. Any excess iron is stored in the body as a reserve.
According to the World Health Organization, iron deficiency anemia is one of the most common nutrient deficiencies in the world. Several groups are at an increased risk for iron deficiency including children and adolescents, pregnant women, women of child-bearing age, athletes, and older adults.
The greatest need for iron is during growth or periods of blood loss. Young children, adolescents and pregnant women have increased needs because of the growth taking place during these periods. The demands during pregnancy are so large that an iron supplement is recommended for pregnant women. Women of child-bearing age have increased requirements because of the losses from menstruation. However, women taking oral contraceptives have slightly decreased iron needs because blood losses from menstruation tend to be less.
An active female athlete involved in a rigorous training program has an increased risk for iron deficiency anemia. Iron deficiency is common with or without anemia, decreases performance for the athlete, and often is not detected on a standard blood test. The capacity to transport oxygen to the cells of the muscle via myoglobin is impaired (energy production is limited), which is vital for competition. Male endurance athletes and vegetarian athletes may also be at an increased risk for iron deficiency. To ensure optimum iron stores, athletes should eat meals or snacks that contain adequate quantities of iron-rich foods and, in some cases, see a physician for a recommended iron supplement. See fact sheet 9.362, Nutrition for the Athlete, for more information.
The elderly are another group at risk for iron deficiency. Seniors should consume adequate quantities of iron-rich foods and be particularly careful to incorporate vitamin C sources with their meals; for example, juice with their toast or cereal or fruit on their morning breakfast food. By eating foods in combination, the absorption of iron can be increased. See fact sheet 9.322, Nutrition and Aging, for more information.
Particle size is an important factor for good mineral absorption, because a fundamental physical law states that the smaller the particle, the greater the relative particle surface. It is this surface that the body uses to break down and absorb nutrients. The larger this surface, the better nutrients can be utilized.
Nano Iron with its extremely small particle absorbs much better than pills or powders. Therefore, Nano Iron is the answer for people with digestive disorders, where the absorption of vitamins and minerals is strongly disturbed. When the liquid is held in the mouth for some time before swallowing, the mineral directly enters the body and takes effect immediately.
Of all the iron dietary supplements, Nano Iron has been found to be the most effective.
