Iron’s primary role in the body is as a component of numerous enzymes and other molecules absolutely essential for health and optimal well-being. The most important compounds are as follows:
Hemoglobin is the iron containing molecule found in blood and responsible for oxygen and carbon dioxide transport. This is obviously very important for the function and survival of all air breathing organisms.
Myoglobin is the iron containing molecule found in muscle tissue which is responsible for providing extra oxygen to the muscle during intense physical exercise when the blood supply cannot provide the necessary amounts.
Cytochromes are iron containing molecules necessary for the production of ATP, our energy currency.
Higher levels of iron are needed during regular intense physical activity, adolescence, and anyone following a vegetarian or vegan dietary lifestyle. Most of our current dietary intake of iron is sourced from animals. Eidon Iron is not derived from animals.
