Iron is one of the most important trace minerals. Its biological role in the body is that it is part of hemoglobin and iron-containing enzymes. Most of the population of our country suffers from its lack. Its deficiency is usually associated with the diet: no more than 2 mg of iron is absorbed from food per day. An additional factor of iron deficiency in the body is the predominance of plant foods in the diet with little or no iron, which in some places is caused by a low iron content in soils.
However, iron is also poorly absorbed in people with gastrointestinal problems. Most often, anemia occurs in women. Therefore, the daily iron intake for women is higher than for men and is 40 mg versus 20 mg per day.
