What is Iron?
Iron is a key mineral that helps to keep our body healthy by preventing the onset of anaemia
How does it work?
Iron helps our red blood cells to transport oxygen from the lungs to the cells all over our bodies. Once the oxygen arrives in the cells the iron then helps the red blood cells to send the carbon dioxide waste back through to the lungs so it can be exhaled. Iron also plays a key role in many of the chemical reactions which naturally occur in our bodies.
Used To Treat
Iron deficiency anaemia caused by low levels of iron in the blood. It is also used to increase the effectiveness of such medicines as epoetinalfa as it helps to rebuild red blood cells that have been depleted due to chemotherapy or kidney dialysis.
Raises delpeted energy levels caused by an iron deficiency
How to take/dosage
The dosage for iron very much depends on age and why you are taking it. If you are in any way concerned about the dosage on the packaging consult a pharmacist or doctor.
Possible side effects
When used appropriately Iron is safe for most people. There have been reported side effects, however, which include stomach pain and upset, diarrhoea or constipation, nausea and vomiting. Tooth discolouration can come from taking an iron supplement in liquid form.
Talk to your doctor before taking an iron supplement if you are taking any kind of antibiotics, bisphosphonates, Levodopa, Levothyroxine, Methyldopa, Mycophenolate Mofetil, Penicillamine, or Chloramphenicol.
Iron is a mineral and should not be confused with a vitamin. If you are taking a multi vitamin including iron check the dosage before taking a separate supplement,
Things to note
Always check that you need to take an iron supplement as an overdose can cause side effects
