Iron is assumed with proper nutrition. In some cases, always on medical advice, we can help our body regain its energy with an iron supplement, the use of which is often recommended for vegetarians and pregnant women, during breastfeeding and at the beginning of the menstrual cycle.

Il iron strengthens the immune system of our body, makes the cell division process work and controls the formation of red blood cells, which have the very important task of carry oxygen to the cells. The human body contains one limited reserve, between three and 5 grams and can assimilate it only with food.



In some particular periods women and girls need it more (for example during pregnancy and breastfeeding). In Europe, however, according to data fromWorld Health Organization about 20% of women of childbearing age would need to supplement the iron reserves. In 2011 the European project Helena, analyzed a thousand boys and girls, reporting that 18% of them suffered from a lack of iron in their blood.

If the reserve runs out, our body asks us for help

When the reserve is running out, our body signals it, for example with headache, paleness, fatigue, lack of appetite: these are just some of the alarm sirens (see i symptoms of anemia on www.floradix.com). Unfortunately they are often confused with common symptoms of other pathologies. For this reason, it is important to always ask for the support of your doctor and carry out tests that confirm that the problem lies precisely in iron deficiency.

To solve the iron deficiency we certainly can take care of nutrition. But be careful, not all foods are good because they exist different types of iron that are more or less assimilable. So in addition to the amount of iron present in a certain food, we must also consider how much our body will absorb.

These are a few foods rich in iron easily assimilated: peanuts, bitter cocoa, beans, pork, liver, lentils, oysters, potatoes, chicken, cuttlefish.

Your doctor may recommend an iron supplement

In some cases, always on medical advice, we can help our body regain its energy with a iron supplement, the use of which is often recommended for vegetarians and pregnant women, during lactation and at the beginning of the menstrual cycle.
