ABOUT IRON

Iron is a mineral our body needs to synthesize hemoglobin, which is a protein in red blood cells that gives blood its red colour and enables red blood cells to carry oxygen throughout the body.

 

When the body does not get enough iron, it cannot produce enough hemoglobin and the number of normal, healthy red blood cells needed to carry oxygen to body tissues.1 This condition is called iron deficiency (iron shortage) or iron deficiency anemia

Be sure to take only the recommended dose of iron.

Too much can be toxic, especially for children.

Talk to your doctor to find out how long you need to take an iron supplement.
