Tiredness, exhaustion, hair loss - all these can be signs of an iron deficiency. Especially women, vegetarians, athletes and seniors suffer from a low iron balance.
Iron is one of the most important trace elements and ensures good mood and performance. But not only that! Iron has many other health benefits, which is why it should be one of your priorities to make sure you get enough iron.
When you have an iron deficiency, the number of iron-containing red blood cells decreases. These only live for about 120 days, but the human body is able to recycle the trace element from degraded blood cells. Otherwise, about 25 milligrams would be lost every day - far more than we can absorb through food. The body does not actively excrete iron, but certain amounts of the trace element are still lost through dead cells of the gastrointestinal tract and small bleeding.
Learn how to tell if you have an iron deficiency and what you can do to prevent it.
