Benefits of Eidon’s Liquid Iron Supplement

Iron is a mineral that is absolutely vital for our health and wellbeing. Primarily, iron plays a crucial role in the proper function of hemoglobin, a protein that is needed to transport oxygen around our body in our blood. This helps with our growth and development when we are young, as well as continuing to support our body systems once we reach adulthood. However, it also assists in a range of other important body functions and processes including pregnancy. If we don’t have enough iron in our bodies, we can experience a range of serious and debilitating symptoms. This condition is known as anemia.

 

Symptoms of iron deficiency aka anemia

  • Extreme fatigue

  • Pale skin

  • Feeling weak

  • Cold hands and feet

  • Chest pain

  • Rapid heart rate and/or shortness of breath

  • Headache, dizziness or feeling light-headed

  • Brittle nails

  • Restless legs

  • Sore or swollen tongue

  • Sores inside your mouth

  • Hair loss

  • Feeling itchy

  • Food tasting strange

  • Pica (wanting to eat dirt and other non-food items)

 

Where does iron come from?

The majority of the iron in our diets comes from the animal protein in red meat, fish and poultry. This means that people who don’t eat meat are at greater risk of suffering an iron deficiency. Iron is also much more easily absorbed from meat sources than any others. However, other potentially good sources of iron include fruit, green leafy vegetables, chocolate, quinoa, mushrooms, legumes and pumpkin seeds.

 

How much iron do we really need?

Current daily intake guidelines recommended by the National Academy of Sciences is as follows:

  • 8mg for men over the age of 18

  • 18mg for women aged 19 to 50

  • 27mg for pregnant women

  • 8mg for women over the age of 50

 

However, there are some instances where higher levels of iron may be required. These include when someone does regular intense levels of physical activity (such as athletes and people who regularly participate in sports), those women who have very heavy menstruation, and those who follow a vegetarian or vegan diet.

 

Although in theory, we should be able to get sufficient amounts of iron through our diets, iron deficiency is, according to the National Academy of Sciences, the most common nutritional deficiency in the world. As a result, many people are turning to iron supplements to help boost their iron intake and their overall health and in particular, liquid iron.
