Iron Facts – Signs Of Low Iron and Other Information

Why is iron important?

Iron is essential to life. It contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue and also plays an important role in normal energy metabolism, oxygen transport, cognitive function, immune function and formation of red blood cells and haemoglobin.

Can I always get enough iron from my food?

You can get iron from food. Depending on the type, it may not be absorbed well and it may not be sufficient to meet your requirements. There are two types of iron found in the diet, non-heme and heme. Non-heme iron found in plants, nuts and legumes. Absorbed at a much lower rate than heme iron. Heme iron found in animal products such as meat, especially red meat. Its important to remember that even if you are making a conscious effort to ingest more heme iron, by eating meat, other daily habits like drinking tea and coffee after your meals can reduce iron absorption and reduce your iron intake.

Who might need to supplement their diet with an iron supplement?

Monthly periods are the most common cause of iron loss worldwide. Research shows that women of childbearing age need 2-3 times more iron than men. Amongst women who experience heavier periods, adequate daily iron intake is particularly important and may be difficult to achieve with diet alone. Although a vegetarian diet will be high in iron rich foods, these sources of iron are poorly absorbed. This may be coupled with other absorption obstacles. Which can bind iron and further reduce absorption. Iron is used by muscles to help produce energy. This explains why active exercisers, especially adults who enjoy endurance exercise to maintain energy and normal immunity. The main adverse effect of blood donation is iron loss. Blood donation experts often recommend a course of at least 30mg of daily iron for up to 6 months post donation.


Also Iron needs are increased during pregnancy because the body uses iron to make extra blood to transport oxygen for mother and baby. The WHO recommends 30 mg of daily iron during pregnancy, especially the second and third trimesters. However, food supplements are not a substitute for a varied diet and a healthy lifestyle. Also, you should not exceed the recommended daily supplement dose of iron without consulting your doctor or pharmacist.

At risk groups:

  • Pregnant women
  • Adolescent girls (who have begun their periods)
  • Women with heavier or prolonged periods
  • Vegetarians and vegans
  • Active men and women
  • Blood donors
