Liquid Iron

 

T. J. Clark Liquid Iron: 

Iron (Fe) is an essential nutrient that carries oxygen and forms part of the oxygen-carrying proteins, hemoglobin in red blood cells and myoglobin in muscle. It is also a necessary component of various enzymes. Body iron is concentrated in the storage forms, ferritin and hemosiderin, in bone marrow, liver, and spleen. Body iron stores can usually be estimated from the amount of ferritin protein in serum.
Transferrin protein in the blood transports and delivers iron to cells.
About 15 percent of your body’s iron is stored for future needs and mobilized when dietary intake is inadequate. The remainder is in your body’s tissues as part of proteins that help your body function. Adult
men and post-menopausal women lose very little iron except through bleeding. Women with heavy monthly periods can lose a significant amount of iron. Your body usually maintains normal iron status by
controlling the amount of iron absorbed from food.

IMPORTANCE: Its major function is to combine with protein and copper in making hemoglobin. Hemoglobin transports oxygen in the blood from the lungs to the tissues which need oxygen to maintain basic
life functions. Iron builds up the quality of the blood and increases resistance to stress and disease. It is also necessary for the formation of myoglobin which is found only in muscle tissue. Myoglobin supplies
oxygen to muscle cells for use in the chemical reaction that results in
muscle contraction.
Deficiencies: Severe iron deficiency results in anemia with small, pale, red blood cells that have a low hemoglobin concentration. Iron deficiency anemia in pregnancy increases the risk of premature and low
birth weight babies. In young children, iron deficiency is associated with behavioral abnormalities (such as reduced attention span), and reduced cognitive performance that may not be fully reversible by iron
replacement. In adults, severe iron deficiency anemia impairs physical work capacity. In the US, iron deficiency anemia is relatively rare, but
affects 5% of women 20 - 49 years old. Moderate iron deficiency without anemia is most common in 1 - 2 year-old children (9%), and
females 12 - 49 years old (9 - 11%), reflecting rapid growth or
menstrual iron loss, and is less common in other groups. Also may result
in weakness, paleness of skin, constipation, anemia. 

Dietary recommendations: The 1989 Recommended Dietary
Allowance (RDA) for iron is 6 mg for infants through 6 months of age;
10 mg for older infants and children through 10 years old, men 18 years
and older, and women over 50 years; 12 mg for 11-18 year-old males;
15 mg for 11-50 year-old females, including nursing mothers; and 30 mg
(a recommendation which requires supplementation) during pregnancy.
The 1989 - 91 USDA Food Consumption Survey indicates that average
diets meet or exceed the RDA for all groups except 1-2 year-old
children (91% of RDA) and women ages 12-49 years (75-80 % of
RDA). Iron supplements are not needed by most people and, because
of potential adverse effects of excessive iron, should not be taken by
adult men or postmenopausal women without demonstrable need. 

Food sources: In the US, grain products are a principal source of
dietary iron, followed by meat, poultry and fish, then vegetables, then
legumes, nuts, and soy. Red meat is a rich source of iron that is well
absorbed. Heme iron (about 40% of the iron in meat, poultry, or fish,
and 7-12% of the iron in US diets) is 15-45% absorbed, depending on
iron stores (persons with low iron stores compensate by absorbing more
iron). Nonheme iron, the remaining majority of dietary iron, is 1-15%
absorbed, depending on iron stores and on absorption enhancers (e.g.,
ascorbic acid, an unidentified factor in meat, poultry and fish) or
inhibitors (e.g., phytic acid in whole grains and legumes, polyphenols in
tea, coffee, or red wine, calcium in dairy products or supplements) eaten
concurrently. In the US refined grain products are enriched routinely
with iron. Iron-fortified formula or cereals are useful in preventing iron
deficiency in infants. 

Toxicity: Iron supplements intended for other household members are
the most common cause of pediatric poisoning deaths in the US. In
populations of European origin, approximately 1 in 300 people have
hemochromatosis, a genetic abnormality of excessive iron stores. Ten
percent of these populations carry a gene (are heterozygous) for
hemochromatosis.
