Iron - We have all heard of it! There have been many articles explaining that most of us, both men and women, are deficient in our daily intake of iron. Even after everything you have read, do you really know what iron is and what it does for your body?
Iron is one of the essential trace minerals that our body depends on for optimal health and function. Iron is a mineral required for red blood cell formation and adequate formation of hemoglobin - the protein that carries oxygen in the blood, and myoglobin - a similar protein that carries oxygen in the muscle tissue. Iron also plays a central role in many vital biochemical pathways and enzyme systems including those involved with energy metabolism, neurotransmitter production (serotonin and dopamine), collagen formation and immune system function.
Good food sources of iron are liver and other organ meats, red meat like beef, beans and peas. The form of iron found in meats is called heme iron, and is much more bioavailable (absorbable) than the type of iron (non-heme) found in plants. The non-heme iron found in beans and peas, however, can be made more absorbable by eating foods rich in vitamin C such as citrus fruit or tomatoes.
