Iron, an essential mineral in the body, is involved in oxygen transport and metabolism. About 65% of the iron in the body is found in blood cells in the protein  hemoglobin that carries oxygen to the body’s tissues and organs. Some iron is found in muscle proteins and in enzymes that assist biochemical reactions in cells.
The body stores about 15% of the iron for future needs and is mobilized when dietary intake is inadequate. The rest is in the body’s tissues as part of proteins that help the body function.
Adult men and post-menopausal women only lose significant iron through blood loss.  Heavy monthly periods can cause a significant loss of iron in women.
Iron is involved in the conversion of blood sugar to energy, it provides the key building block for the production of enzymes involved with making new cells, amino acids, hormones, and neurotransmitters.
Other important activities requiring iron include liver detoxification, fatty acid metabolism, and making carnitine and serotonin and dopamine.
Iron is also essential for the production of collagen and elastin, which provide structural integrity and elasticity for organs and tissues.
Liver is by far the richest iron containing food; other medium sources of iron-rich foods include organ meats, fish, and poultry. Dried beans and vegetables can provide some iron and are the best plant sources, followed by dried fruits, nuts, and whole grain breads and cereals. Fortification of cereals, flours and bread with iron has helped raise our daily dietary iron.
