Iron exists in foods in two main forms: haem and non-haem.

Used part

Iron is present in the haemoglobin of red blood cells that transport oxygen to all cells. It is also present in myoglobin, a substance similar to haemoglobin, which helps the muscles to store oxygen in reserve. Iron is essential to the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the premium source of the body’s energy. It participates in several vital physiological processes, such as the regulation of cell growth and their differentiation. The body cannot synthesize iron and so it must draw it from foods. With nature being as clever as it is, when the body’s iron stores start to become depleted, its rate of absorption increases. On the other hand, when they are full, absorption reduces, which protects against the toxic effects of excess iron in the body.
