Iron supplements are used to treat iron deficiency and iron anemia. Iron plays a key role in making red blood cells, which carry oxygen. You can get iron from food or supplements. If you dont have enough iron, you may develop anemia, a low level of red blood cells. Most people get enough iron in their diets, if you dont supplements are available.
Some of the reasons a person may need iron supplements are because they take certain medications which may lower normal levels. Those who exercise frequently and females typically have lower levels of iron. Iron is crucial in creating energy form nutrients. It also contributes to the transmission of nerve impulses and signals that coordinate the actions of different parts of your body. If you have more iron than is needed, its stored in your body for future use. Iron is an important component of hemoglobin.
Taking iron in supplements can improve a low hemoglobin level. Hemoglobin is the protein molecule in red blood cells with the function of carrying oxygen from the lungs to the body tissues and likewise returning carbon dioxide from the body tissues back to the lungs, also providing cells with the energy to function and maintaining the normal shape of red blood cells.
Abnormal hemoglobin can disrupt the red blood cell shape and impede the function and flow of the red blood cells. A low hemoglobin level is typically only slightly lower than the normal amount and wont affect bodily function much. However, very low hemoglobin levels may indicate Anemia, low red blood cell count. Anemia is caused by such factors as: the loss of blood, nutritional deficiency such as excessive dieting, bone marrow problems including suppression from radiation, kidney failure, and abnormal hemoglobin structure (such as sickle cell anemia). A low hemoglobin level may lead to extreme fatigue, bruising, fainting, and in extreme cases, blood clotting.
Ideally, you should take iron supplements on an empty stomach because food can decrease the amount of iron your body absorbs. Taking iron supplements with foods or drinks that have vitamin C will help your body absorb the iron.
