Iron is a mineral that the body needs to produce red blood cells. When the body does not get enough iron, it cannot produce the number of normal red blood cells needed to keep you in good health. Iron also has an important role in the healthy function of the immune system and is vital for cognitive development.
Lack of iron may lead to unusual tiredness & lack of energy, feeling short of breath, brittle nails, thinning hair and a decrease in physical performance.
If you don't have enough iron in your body, iron supplements are a good way to make up for the shortage.
