Iron is one of the mineral requirements in man. Minerals are inorganic ions needed by the body for coenzyme activity. They are also needed for the proper functioning of the body. Iron is a trace element needed by the body and is important in making red blood cells, which carry oxygen around the body.
What Does Iron Do for Your Body?
CONTRIBUTES TO THE NORMAL FORMATION OF RED BLOOD CELLS AND HAEMOGLOBIN.
One of the most beneficial effects of iron is in the production of red blood cells. Iron is a central element in the production of red blood cells. Iron is central to the production of red blood cells. Hemoglobin a major component of red blood cells requires iron. Iron is central to hemoglobin.
CONTRIBUTES TO NORMAL OXYGEN TRANSPORT IN THE BODY.
Oxygen transport around the body requires red blood cells. Inside the red blood cells is the oxygen-carrying pigment called hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is a combination of iron and other compounds. Without iron, there will be no oxygen transport and hence no oxygen transport around the body.
CONTRIBUTES TO THE NORMAL FUNCTION OF THE IMMUNE SYSTEM.
Iron has some beneficial effects on the immune system. It helps in the proliferation of immune defense molecules. It also helps in the activation of these immune molecules. Iron also helps to boost nonspecific forms of immunity. A non-specific form of immunity is regarded as the first line of body defense against foreign bodies.
CONTRIBUTES TO NORMAL ENERGY-YIELDING METABOLISM.
Iron is essential in ensuring energy-generating processes of the body go smoothly. This is because oxygen is a major raw material needed for energy generation. This oxygen is carried around the body by hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is an iron-derived molecule. So iron helps in the transport of oxygen which is needed for energy generation.
CONTRIBUTES TO THE REDUCTION OF TIREDNESS AND FATIGUE.
This is as a result of the energy-generating process iron is involved in. The major energy-generating process of the body requires oxygen. Iron helps in the transport of that oxygen to the target tissue which helps to generate energy for the body. This helps us stay strong and healthy.
IRON HAS A ROLE IN THE PROCESS OF CELL DIVISION.
Iron also plays a role in cell division by helping to generate energy that will be used for cell division. It is also involved in DNA synthesis. It is also a major regulator of the cell cycle by inhibiting the formation or activities of the cyclin and cyclin-dependent kinase complexes. Intracellular iron disruption by chelators causes cell cycle arrest, particularly in G1 and S phases.
Deficiency symptoms of iron.
Due to the iron involved in the energy-generating processes of the body. The deficiency of iron may mimic some other minerals and vitamins necessary for energy generation. Some of these symptoms include:
- Anemia reduction in oxygen and blood circulation around the body
- Fatigue and tiredness as a result of less oxygen transport around the body.
- Pale skin is a result of decreased oxygen circulation around the body. This consequently affects the skin making the skin appear pale.
Other symptoms may include:
- Weakened immune
- Brittle nails
- Cold hands and feet
