This mineral is also needed for the production of myoglobin(major protein of muscle cells) and certain enzymes.
Why Iron BOOST spray is a better choice?
In Iron BOOST Super Health spray we use a highly absorbable iron compound (sodium feredetate), manufactured under a proprietary patent. This is no ordinary iron salt. It has remarkable bio-availability and can deliver maximum benefit without the side-effects associated with some other iron supplements known to cause gastro-intestinal problems and an unpleasant metallic taste.
Having been formulated from the advanced iron source, Iron BOOST spray is the better choice for you because:
• it has no negative influence on the bio-availability of other minerals
• it’s least affected by iron inhibitors, especially in phytate-rich diets
• it exhibits minimal gastrointestinal disturbances
• it has a higher absorption rate in the human body
• there’s no risk of iron overload.
Iron: Nutritional Role and Health Benefits
Iron can be found in everything from raisins to red meat,eggs, fish, beans and leafy green vegetables. However, there are two types of iron. Heme Iron, which is found in meats and fish, is better-absorbed than Non-Heme Iron, found in leafy veggies and enriched cereals.
In addition to its role in building up hemoglobin, iron is also necessary for proper muscle and organ function and filling our bodies with energy. It is essential for proper metabolism of B vitamins. Iron is a key component of myelin sheaths, which wrap around neurons in the brain. If a cognitive sheath is not fully formed, the neurons are not protected and can’t make connections they should be able to make. This is important during the fetal period and first few years of life.
Feeling of tiredness and weakness, decrease in mental performance or difficulty with maintaining body temperature can be a good indication of an iron deficiency. Women are at greater risk for iron deficiency than men since girls lose large amounts of iron during periods of menstruation. The need for iron increases during growth periods (pregnancy, infancy, childhood, and teen years). Some pre-term infants may also have some increased iron needs. Other people at risk of iron deficiency are vegetarians, dieters and athletes.
Usage Guidelines for Iron
Calcium and copper must be present for iron to function properly. Absorption of iron is also enhanced by vitamin C. As many as 20 percent of all girls and up to 80 percent of girls who exercise may be iron deficient.
Unlike calcium, which can be deposited in your body, iron can only be obtained from food. There are a number inhibitors in our diet affecting iron absorption. A lack of iron in the body can cause iron deficiency which makes you feel tired and increase your risk of illness or disease. for example, iron deficiency can cause:
( heavy menstrual periods, pregnancy, chemotherapy, kidney disease )
• neurological disorders
• immunity alterations
• abnormalities in epithelial tissues
(covering or lining of all internal and external body surfaces).
Iron deficiency is the most prevalent important nutritional problem of humans. It threatens over 60 percent of women and children in most non-industrialized countries, and more than half of these have overt anaemia. In most industrialized countries in North America, Europe and Asia, 12 to 18 percent of women are anaemic.
