Iron deficiency is one of the most common nutrient deficiencies in the UK, with an estimated 40% of school age children suffering. If you are pregnant, vegetarian or have suffered from heavy blood loss your chance of iron deficiency is greater. Everyday medication such as antacids can also hinder your iron intake from food. Iron plays a fundamental role in our everyday health by carrying oxygen to the cells around our body. A lack of adequate iron can delay infant motor function and mental function, fetal development, and energy production. As a result we can feel tired, depressed, prone to infection and muscle aches. Taking Vitamin C with any iron supplement greatly enhances your body’s absorption and use of iron.
