Iron is responsible for several vital functions such as transporting oxygen. Iron is part of the hemoglobin molecule, which binds to oxygen, thus its distribution from the lungs to the rest of the body. Furthermore, iron is essential for red blood cell formation and is part of enzymes; specifically cytochrome, which serves as the electron carrier. Therefore, it serves as a carrier of energy inside cells.
Iron promotes normal cognitive function, normal energy-yielding metabolism, normal formation of red blood cells and hemoglobin, as well as normal oxygen transport within the body. It also contributes to the normal function of the immune system, to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, and has a role in the process of cell division.
