What Is Iron?

Iron is an essential mineral that plays a key role in various physiological processes such as red blood cell formation, energy production and immune function. A deficit in iron level can cause symptoms such as extreme fatigue, fever, shortness of breath, headache and rapid heartbeat. As per a recent study, iron deficiency is the most dominant nutritional deficiency worldwide, affecting approximately 4-6 billion people. To make sure you don’t become one of them, it’s important to consume iron supplements alongside iron-rich foods like egg, chicken, beef, lamb, chickpea and kidney beans.

Benefits of Taking Iron Supplements

Since most common dietary sources of iron are animal-based, vegans and vegetarians are at the highest risk of having iron deficiency. That’s why vegan iron supplements can fulfil everyone’s daily iron requirement, including vegans and keep iron deficiency at bay. According to the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), iron -

  • Contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism

  • Contributes to normal oxygen transport in the body
  • Contributes to the normal function of the immune system
  • Contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue
  • Has a role in the process of cell division
