Iron is an essential trace mineral that is required for several important bodily functions. These include the formation of normal red blood cells & haemoglobin together with oxygen transport. Iron also contributes to normal cognitive & immune function.
A lack of iron can lead to iron deficiency anaemia. The amount of iron needed per day is 8.7mg for men & 14.8mg for women. Many foods are good sources of iron e.g. meat, beans & dark green leafy vegetables.
Drinking tea & coffee can limit the absorption of iron whilst foods containing Vitamin C can increase absorption.
