    IRON DESCRIPTION

    OVERVIEW

    Iron, a trace mineral, supplies energy to every cell in the body. Perhaps the most important of iron's functions in the body is the production of hemoglobin (the blood's oxygen-carrying pigment) and myoglobin (the form of hemoglobin found in muscle tissue) and the oxygenation of red blood cells. Iron is the mineral found in the largest amounts in the blood.

    Iron is essential for many enzymes, including catalase, and is important for growth.

    Iron is also required for a healthy immune system and for energy production.

    This mineral is critical to sharp mental functioning. Even slight deficiencies in iron can shorten attention span and make concentration difficult.





    IRON HEALTH BENEFITS, USES, & SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE

    IRON DEFICIENCY

    Iron deficiency is most often caused by chronic insufficient dietary intake. However, it may result from prolonged bleeding (even of small amounts) such as in intestinal bleeding, excessive menstrual bleeding, ulcers, hemorrhoids, and rectal polyps. A diet high in phosphorus, poor digestion, long-term illness, prolonged use of antacids, excessive coffee or tea consumption, and other causes can also result in iron deficiency anemia. Menstruating women may become iron deficient, especially if they have heavy or prolonged periods and/or short menstrual cycles. In some cases, a deficiency of vitamin B-6 (pyridoxine) or vitamin B-12 can be the underlying cause of anemia. Strenuous exercise and heavy perspiration deplete iron from the body. Strict vegetarians are susceptible to iron deficiency. Many people develop this type of anemia as a consequence of an NSAID-related ulcer, or one caused by months or years of regularly taking aspirin, ibuprofen, or other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID).

    MoonDragon's Womens Health Information: Anemia Disorders Index

    Government statistics indicate that 11 percent of women under age 50 and 9 percent of adolescents are iron-deficient. Dieters, some vegetarians, and endurance athletes may also develop iron deficiency due to the unique demands on their bodies.

    Iron deficiency symptoms include anemia, brittle hair, difficulty swallowing, digestive disturbances, dizziness, fatigue, fragile bones, hair loss, inflammation of the tissues of the mouth, nails that are spoon-shaped or that have ridges running lengthwise, nervousness, obesity, pallor, and slowed mental reactions.

    Normally, the body gets sufficient amounts of iron from the foods you eat. It manages to self-regulate itself, storing amounts you will need by automatically absorbing more iron when the need is high, and less when levels are adequate. Nonetheless, iron deficiency is still a significant public health problem. It can occur during periods of rapid growth, such as during infancy, adolescence, and pregnancy, which increase the body's demand for this mineral.

    Because iron is stored in the body, excessive iron intake can also cause problems. Too much iron in the tissues and organs leads to the production of free radicals and increases the need for vitamin E. High levels of iron have also been found in association with heart disease and cancer. The buildup of iron in the tissues has been associated with a rare disease known as hemochromotosis, a hereditary disorder of iron metabolism that is found mostly in men and that causes excessive absorption of iron from both foods and supplements, leading to bronze skin pigmentation, arthritis, cirrhosis of the liver, diabetes, and heart disorders.

    IRON DEFICIENCY ANEMIA

    If iron-deficiency anemia develops, the body has to struggle to absorb sufficient amounts of oxygen. This is the most common type of anemia. At its most severe, however, or in the presence of certain other debilitating illnesses, iron-deficiency anemia can be life-threatening. However, it is relatively easy to treat.

    If your health care provider or midwife has diagnosed an iron deficiency during your pregnancy, then iron supplements can help, either by using supplemental products or by more holistic nutritional herbs, therapeutic teas and foods high in iron added to your daily dietary plan.

    Iron Supplements To Correct Iron-Deficiency Anemia. When iron stores are too low, the lack of oxygen produces debilitating fatigue, weakness, and shortness of breath. Iron supplementation can correct the condition. (The underlying causes of bleeding should be medically treated as well, of course.) Bear in mind that a wide range of other medical conditions and other nutritional deficiencies, such as a shortage of folic acid, might also cause these symptoms. So never take iron supplements without medical advice.

    IRON DOSAGE INFORMATION

    Unless you are diagnosed as anemic, you should not take iron supplements.

    If you take a Multivitamin & Mineral supplement, choose a product that does not contain iron. If you do need to take iron supplements, do not take them at the same time as Vitamin E. and choose an organic form of iron such as ferrous gluconate or ferrous fumarate. Inorganic forms of iron, such as ferrous sulfate, can oxidize vitamin E.

    The RDA for supplemental Iron is 8 mg per day for adult men, 12 mg a day for male children above age 10, and 18 mg per day for adult women and girls over 11 years of age and 27 mg for pregnant women.

    There must be sufficient hydrochloric acid (HCl) present in the stomach in order for Iron to be absorbed. Copper, Manganese, Molybdenum, Vitamin A, and the Vitamin B-Complex Vitamins are also needed for complete iron absorption. Taking Vitamin C can increase iron absorption by as much as 30 percent.

    Taking Calcium with meals can inhibit the absorption of iron from dietary sources. If you are iron deficient, take calcium supplements at bedtime or at other times of the day when you are not consuming foods containing iron. Excessive amounts of zinc and vitamin E interfere with iron absorption. Iron utilization may be impaired by rheumatoid arthritis and cancer. These diseases can result in anemia despite adequate amounts of iron stored in the liver, spleen, and bone marrow. Iron deficiency is more prevalent in people with candidiasis or chronic herpes infections.

    SPECIAL TIPS

  • To boost the amount of iron your body absorbs, take the supplement with small amounts of meat or with foods and drinks rich in Vitamin C, such as Broccoli or Orange juice. For the same reasons, it's also smart to take an iron supplement along with your daily Multivitamin. Vitamin A and the trace mineral Molybdenum also aid iron absorption.

  • Have your health care provider or midwife test your blood levels in a month or two; never take iron for more than six months without retesting, so that iron overload can be avoided.

  • For iron deficiency anemia, ask your health care provider about the most appropriate dose for your needs.


  • GUIDELINES FOR USE

  • Take iron supplements with meals to minimize the chance of stomach upset. Taking the supplement with traditional breakfast foods may not be the best choice, however; even though Vitamin C enhances iron absorption, coffee can interfere with it. Soy protein isolates, often used in fruit "smoothies," can also reduce iron absorption.

  • Calcium as well as large doses of chromium can interfere with iron absorption, so take these supplements at least two hours apart from iron.





  • IRON SAFETY, CAUTIONS & SIDE EFFECTS

    MEDICATION INTERACTIONS

    Iron supplements can interfere with the action of a number of medications, including thyroid hormone drugs, statins (to lower cholesterol), certain antibiotics, and various Parkinson's disease drugs. So be sure to tell your health care provider about any supplements you are taking in addition to your regular medications.

    IRON SUPPLEMENT SIDE EFFECTS

  • Iron supplements can cause stools to become dark green or black in color; this is caused by any unabsorbed iron and is harmless.
  • Iron supplements may cause constipation in some individuals.


  • TOO MUCH IRON

  • Doses of iron higher than the tolerable upper daily intake level (UL) of 45 mg can cause nausea, vomiting, and constipation.
  • Very high doses can be fatal.


  • As important as iron is to a healthy body, too much is not a good thing, either. You should only take supplemental iron if a blood test identifies a true deficiency. In an estimated one million Americans, an inherited (and often undetected) disorder called hemochromotosis is present, in which too much iron is absorbed. Iron overload such as this can contribute to health problems such as heart disease.

  • Keep iron-containing supplements out of the reach of children. As few as five high-potency iron tablets can be fatal for a small child.

  • Check the labels of any multivitamin and mineral supplements you take, and add up the amounts to be sure you are not accumulating too much iron in your total daily intake.

  • Do not take iron supplements if you have an infection. Because bacteria require iron for growth, the body "hides" iron in the liver and other storage sites when an infection is present. Taking extra iron at such times encourages the proliferation of bacteria in the body.

    IRON SUPPLEMENT PRODUCTS

    Iron is an essential part of hemoglobin, the oxygen carrying molecule in red blood cells. It is also found in enzymes necessary for respiration and as part of the Krebs cytochrome energy cycle. Iron should be taken only if a deficiency exists. Always take iron supplements separately, rather than in a multivitamin and mineral formula. Do not take iron with a supplement containing vitamin E.

    This mineral can be used as a supplemental source of iron if recommended by a doctor or natural health practitioner. Iron is critical to human life. It plays the central role in the hemoglobin molecule of red blood cells (RBC) where it functions in transporting oxygen from the lungs to the body's tissues and the transportation of carbon dioxide from the tissues to the lungs. Iron also functions in several key enzymes in energy production and metabolism including DNA synthesis. The body needs iron to form hemoglobin, the oxygen-carrying element in the blood and anemia is an indication of iron deficiency. As men age they need less iron. Some women supplement with iron to counteract heavy menstrual blood loss.

    HerbsPro: Vegan Chelated Iron, With Vitamin B-12, Deva Vegan Vitamins, 29 mg, 90 Tabs (93208)
    Deva Nutrition is proud to introduce its amino acid chelated Iron supplement with added Vitamin B-12. Red blood cells (RBCs) are a component of our blood, which are responsible for carrying oxygen to the cells. When our body does not have enough healthy RBCs, this condition is known as anemia. There are many types of anemia, one of which is iron deficiency anemia. In this type of anemia, the body does not have enough iron hence it makes fewer than necessary RBCs or very small RBCs. A person with anemia may feel tired and weak and, often has a decreased immunity with more susceptibility to infections. Iron supplements, particularly ferrous sulphate have been widely used as dietary supplements; however there are common side effects like constipation and stomach upset. Under such circumstances, an amino acid chelated iron supplement seems to be a reasonable solution since it is better absorbed from the gastrointestinal system and does not adversely affect the inner lining of the gastrointestinal system. Deva Vegan Iron tablets also contain Vitamin B-12 which is an important factor in proper RBC formation. According to FDA, any food that provides 20% or more of daily value (DV) is considered high in that nutrient. Deva Vegan Iron tablets contain 500% DV of Vitamin B12 per serving. Iron amino acid chelates are commonly used as food fortificants or therapeutic agents.

    LIFE EXTENSION PRODUCTS

    LEF: Iron Protein Plus, Life Extension, 300 mg, 100 Caps
    Iron is an integral part of many proteins and enzymes that maintain good health. In humans, iron is an essential component of proteins involved in oxygen transport. It is also essential for the regulation of cell growth and differentiation. A deficiency of iron limits oxygen delivery to cells, resulting in fatigue, poor work performance, and decreased immunity. Conversely, excess amounts of iron can result in toxicity and even death. Supplementation with iron protein succinylate has been shown to promote healthy red blood cell formation, support healthy oxygen-carrying capacity of blood (hemoglobin). Iron protein succinylate is a highly absorbable form of iron and is easier on the stomach than other forms of iron. Iron protein succinylate is a non-toxic iron compound.

This unique iron form results in maximum absorption without the gastrointestinal irritation or constipating effects that often accompany iron supplementation.
    Kalyx: Chewable Iron Bariatric Support, Blackberry Flavor, Twinlab, 18 mg, 60 Tabs: HF
    Iron deficiency is one of the most common nutritional concerns after bariatric surgery. Estimates indicate that up to 50% of bariatric surgery patients experience iron deficiency due to a number of factors that may include reduced absorption of iron and a decreased intake of meat. Twinlab Bariatric Support Chewable Iron is a highly absorbable iron supplement formulated to help bariatric surgery patients meet their daily iron requirements in a tasty and convenient chewable tablet. This product contains Ferrochel iron bisglycinate, a unique form of chelated iron formulated for maximum absorption without gastrointestinal irritation or the constipating effects that often accompany iron supplementation.

    Iron, found in many foods, is a mineral essential for the production of oxygen-carrying hemoglobin and red blood cell oxidation, stamina and a healthy immune system. Iron-deficient people tire easily. Vegetarians consume less iron than non-vegetarians, and vegetable iron is somewhat less absorbable. Women with menstrual porblems, pregnant women, marathon athletes, people with parasitic infections, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease or other conditions that cause blood loss or malabsorption are likely to be iron deficient. But iron has many complications and contraindications, and a physician should be consulted before embarking on a course of iron supplementation. Natural, Chelated Twinlab Iron Caps are easier to swallow and assimilate. Well tolerated by most highly allergic individuals.
    Kalyx: SunActive Iron Ease, Healthy Origins, 27 mg, 60 Caps: HF
