Minerals

Iron

Iron is an essential nutrient in the prevention and treatment of anaemia.

A little background information

Iron is a minor mineral, a transition element, qualified in nutrition as a trace element due to its low quantitative importance, although it is vital for
the body.

Its role in the body

Iron is the essential constituent in haemoglobin, the pigment that transports oxygen in the red blood cells, and of myoglobin, which does the same job
in the muscles (explaining the red colour of blood and muscle). It also has many enzymatic functions, especially with respect to cellular respiration.

Natural sources

Liver, meat and fish, as well as green vegetables and especially some mineral salts are major sources of iron for animals.
