«Iron has a central role in the haemoglobin of red blood cells, where it participates in the transport of oxygen from lungs to tissues and of carbon dioxide from tissues to lungs. Iron is an integral part of several key enzymes in the production of energy and in metabolism, including DNA synthesis.
Iron deficiency is the most common form of nutritional deficiency. Children under 2 years, adolescents, the elderly, breastfeeding and pregnant women are subject to the highest risk. Pregnant women regularly take iron supplements, as their requirements cannot be met by simply supplementing their diet.
A decrease in the absorption of iron is extremely common in old age.
Iron deficiency can cause a drop in energy and physical performance, as well as excessive fatigue. Alterations in physical performance produced by a lack of iron does not necessarily result from anaemia…. Iron-dependent enzymes involved in energy production and metabolism are affected much before anaemia occurs » [1].  

«Iron, if taken alone, can do more harm than good, if our body is not able to provide: copper, vitamin C and B12, folic acid, [β-carotene, Cysteine, NAC or N-Acetil-Cysteine] and particularly vitamin B6 (pyridoxine). If the latter is not sufficient, iron is not used and will form granular deposits inside red blood cells …» [2].

«Iron is involved in the synthesis of myoglobin, carnitine, DNA, collagen, serotonin, dopamine, noradrenaline, takes part in the physiological brain development and performs activities in the stimulation of the immune system, exerts an anticancer effect and improves learning » [3].
