Don’t think you need an iron supplement in your life?Unfortunately, iron deficiency knows no boundaries. From women to vegetarians and the elderly, the shortage of this mineral is widespread. All the ladies out there? We’re specifically looking at you. It is estimated that up to 26 percent of reproductive-aged women are iron deficient. Getting your sweat on? Athletes lose large amounts of iron through their sweat. Runners are especially susceptible to iron deficiency because the consistent repetition of striking the ground can lead to the destruction of red blood cells. In one study, 56 percent of distance runners tested—most of whom were men!—were low in iron <1>
So why is iron so important?It’s responsible for making hemoglobin, a protein in red blood cells that allows them to carry oxygen throughout your body. If your body doesn’t have enough hemoglobin, your tissues and muscles won’t get enough oxygen and be able to work effectively.
When this essential element is low, energy levels decrease drastically.Other tell-tale symptoms include weakness, pale skin, dark under-eye circles, brittle hair and nails, shortness of breath, and cold hands and feet. Think you may be deficient? Flora has a time-tested formula that may help. While certain foods like red meat, poultry, dried fruit, and dark leafy greens like kale, can help with low iron, the best way to make sure you’re getting the amount you need is by letting Floradix (US/CA) take care of it for you. With an easy-to-swallow taste that’s completely plant-based and natural, you can say goodbye to the low-iron lag.
