Iron is a mineral that the body requires in order to create red blood cells. When your body doesn’t receive a sufficient quantity of the mineral, it cannot produce the necessary amount of red blood cells to keep it healthy. This medical condition is known as an iron deficiency, iron shortage, or as deficiency anemia. An iron deficiency can present with shortness of breath, unusual fatigue, and learning issues and can heighten your risk of getting an infection. It is important to know why iron supplements should be taken and what other sources of iron are available. If you are needing supplementation, you can speak with your physician about iron supplements and learn the important information about the mineral.
