Iron plays a vital role in the formation of red blood cells (hemoglobin) that move oxygen throughout the body. Iron also helps with things like brain development and hormone production. On average, the body contains about 3-4 grams of iron in the blood, liver, spleen, and marrow.
Iron comes in two types: “Heme” (animal sources) and “Nonheme” (plant-based sources). Iron is best absorbed alongside Vitamin C and copper an hour or two before/after meals. Iron absorption can be inhibited by things like coffee, dairy, products, and magnesium. *
