Iron is an essential trace element and indispensable. It cannot be produced in the human body and therefore needs to be supplied. Iron plays a fundamental role in our metabolic processes and is responsible for many other oxygen transport functions in the blood. Every cell in our body needs iron for its energy balance.
Especially for women it is therefore important to supply the body with enough iron. During periods the female body loses iron and iron is mainly found in red meat, which is not generally favoured by most women. Iron deficiency leads to limitations in physical performance. Prolonged iron deficiency can have serious consequences.
