Iron deficiency is a common disorder that a number of people suffer from but some may encounter more symptoms than others, which is why it is important to get your iron levels checked by your doctor to find out if your iron levels are adequate or not.
Some symptoms of iron deficiency:
- Feeling generally fatigued and tired
- Shortness of breath
- Pale skin
- Tingling feeling in your legs
- Cold hands and feet
- Strange cravings to eat things that aren’t seen as food, such as ice or dirt
- Brittle nails
Iron plays an essential role in red blood cell production. A deficiency of iron could result in your body not being able to transport sufficient oxygen, and this leads to you feeling mentally and physically drained. It also has a role to play in converting blood glucose, which comes from the food we eat, into energy. This allows for your muscles to work efficiently and reduces recovery times after intense exercising.
Iron is also important for creating new and healthy cells in the body. It helps keep your nails, skin and hair looking great. It also aids in strengthening the immune system which assists to fight off infections.
Unlike regular iron supplements, FerriFer is a new formulation that contains both Ferrochel (chelated form of iron) and Quatrefolic (new form of folate). These ingredients help improve absorption to ensure better bio-availability.
