Iron deficiency - The world's most common nutritional deficiency

Iron deficiency the most prevalent micronutrient deficiency in the world. The only nutritional deficiency that is more common is protein deficiency, which is unfortunately common in poor countries. Iron deficiency mainly affects women of childbearing age as they lose iron during menstruation each month. Pregnancy also increases iron losses. Men can also suffer from iron deficiency, but this is often related to poor iron absorption in the body or a low-iron diet.

Iron - Reduces fatigue and exhaustion

Iron is mostly stored in the red blood cells of the blood as part of haemoglobin. Hemoglobin's job is to carry oxygen around from the lungs to all parts of the body, as well as picking up carbon dioxide on its way back to the lungs for us to breathe out. When you have low levels of iron, this oxygen transport doesn't happen as efficiently, making us tired and exhausted. Iron is also part of enzymes needed for the body's energy production. It is therefore important to keep an eye on your iron levels, especially as a pregnant woman as deficiency is very common.

Iron - Important for the immune system

Iron is an essential mineral for a healthy immune system. Iron deficiency is linked to increased susceptibility to infection, reduced white blood cell counts and reduced antibody production.

Ferrous bisglycinate - Gentle on the stomach

Unfortunately, many iron supplements cause stomach problems such as constipation. Especially iron sulphate in high doses can have this effect. Iron in the form of iron bisglycinate is a gentle organic form of iron with high bioavailability and does not cause constipation or other discomfort. Elexir Iron comes in a depot tablet that is slowly excreted into the body, further increasing absorption.
