Iron is one of, if not the most vital nutrients in our bodies. While a small amount of iron is present in almost every human cell, it is mostly found in red blood cells.

Iron has lots of benefits, among which the most notable ones are supporting proper immune function, treating anemia, and boosting hemoglobin.

1. Reduces Symptoms of Anemia

If you didn’t know already, anemia is one of the most common nutritional deficiencies in the world. Its symptoms include dizziness, fatigue, and extremely fast heart rate.

Anemia occurs when haemoglobin rates are much lower than usual. As we mentioned earlier, iron boosts haemoglobin, and thus reduces symptoms of anemia.

Furthermore, there is a specific type of anemia that has only one cause: iron deficiency. This type of anemia can only be treated by increasing iron intake. (1)

2. Increases Levels of Haemoglobin

Haemoglobin not only reduces chances of suffering from anemia but also plays an important role in the proper functioning of our bodies.

It carries oxygen from lungs to the body’s tissues and returns carbon dioxide from the tissues back to the lungs — without which we cannot live.

So since iron increases levels of haemoglobin, it indirectly helps regulate proper breathing. (2)

3. Reduces Fatigue

Here’s a fun fact: iron may rid you of the unexplained fatigue you’ve been feeling.

Both men and women with low iron intake often feel tired and fatigued because low iron levels are directly linked to low energy levels.

So if you have been feeling tired lately and don’t know why, increase your iron intake because chances are you’re running low on energy due to low iron levels. (3)

4. Boosts Immunity

As we have mentioned several times already, iron increases production of haemoglobin.

But what we didn’t mention was that haemoglobin protects oxygen when it is being carried to different organs and thus strengthens the immune system.

Therefore, without iron, our immune system cannot start the healing process. (4)

5. Improves Muscle Strength

According to recent research, iron deficiency is directly linked to muscle weakness because iron provides the necessary oxygen for muscle contraction.

Furthermore, low iron levels can lead to inflamed muscle tissues — which can be agonizing. On the other hand, when your body has adequate iron levels, it can repair tissues properly and thus save you a lot of discomfort. (5)

Health Issues Associated With Iron Deficiency

As you may have gathered by now, our bodies cannot function properly without iron.

Iron deficiency can lead to a never-ending list of health problems, among which the most common ones are:

  • Pale skin
  • Fatigueness
  • Cold hands or feet
  • Inflammation of several organs
  • Headache, dizziness, and lightheadedness
  • Fast heartbeat, chest pain, and shortness of breath

If you want to prevent all these discomforting issues, add iron-rich foods to your diet.

Daily Recommended Intake

Here’s the list of daily recommended intakes of iron for different groups based on age and gender:

  • For children aged 2-11 years, the recommended intake is 13.7 milligram per day.
  • For teens aged 12-19 years, the recommended intake is 16.3 milligram per day.
  • For men and women older than 19 years, the recommended intake is 19.3 and 17.0 milligram per day respectively.

We just completed a very large Homeopathic tablet order that required involvement from 4 different facilities. There was nobody else in the country that was willing to help us that we called until we found superior. First shipment came last week and we couldn’t be happier or more impressed with the team. Thank you Justine, Phil, Stephenie you are the best!

I was choosing between two companies to create a formulation, and it came down to their level of service, expertise and confidence in their ability to execute. After speaking to Phil, their lead guy who knows all things supplements and is very easy to communicate with, was enthusiastic and helped to create a strategy to see my vision through. The last thing you want is a transactional relationship in this industry, so whether you’re a first timer or a veteran, these guys know how to add value no matter what level you’re at. Highly recommend Superior and their team to get the job done.
When they say “Superior” they aren’t kidding. Of over 100 companies on our NSF list that we called, and over 20 that we talked to, Superior was the ONLY one that consistently answered their phones, worked incredibly diligently to problem solve and R&D an incredibly complex patented proprietary product, and consistently was two or three steps ahead of us, the landscape and their competitors. Looking forward to a long relationship Superior!
We’ve been using Superior for over 5 years. We came to them because our last manufacturer stopped making the capsule size I needed. I looked everywhere for a replacement. Luckily, I found Superior. They quoted me a fair price and sourced a hard to find ingredient quickly. In the 5 years we’ve had them make our product, which is a custom formulation, they have never delivered late once. Quality control is very high and I get constant updates from Phil our point person while it is being manufactured. I cannot recommend them enough.
Our previous manufacturer was 3 months late on a production and barely spoke with us. We have run many runs with Superior and as with all manufacturing, there was an order that was a little late because of poor crop growth. Not only did they warn us ahead of time they showed us the list of suppliers they were calling day and night to try to find replacement material. Best company ever!
Jake, Justine and Phil are just a few of the team members we have had the pleasure of working with at Superior. As a marketing agency working in the supplement industry, we work with many suppliers on behalf of our clients. I especially appreciate Superior Supplements Manufacturing because of their dedication to customer relationships. They go to extreme measures to ensure quality ingredients, fair pricing and great turn around times. The staff is also extremely knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this team.
