All About Iron

Iron is important for the formation of haemoglobin, the part of the red blood cell that transports oxygen around the body.  It is also used in producing energy, and breaking down drugs and other toxins.  Children need iron for good growth and development, and the immune system relies upon it for normal function.

The RDA of Iron is 14mg. The SONA is 15mg.

A lack of iron is associated with a pale tongue, hair loss, itchy skin, cold intolerance, brittle nails, restless legs, a lack of energy, little enjoyments, shortness of breath and heavy periods.

Good food sources of iron are; spinach, pumpkin seeds, carrots, potatoes, broccoli, clams, oysters, shrimp, red meat, chicken, liver, sardines, chickpeas, eggs, dried apricots, dried figs and tomato puree.
