Benefit of Iron Supplement
Iron, a trace mineral, supplies energy to every cell in the body. It is a
key component of hemoglobin, the bloods oxygen-carrying pigment. Iron
is also found in myoglobin, which supplies oxygen to muscles, and in
compounds that keep the immune system strong. This mineral is critical
to sharp mental functioning.
Even slight deficiencies in iron can shorten attention span and make
concentration difficult. Normally, the body gets sufficient amounts of
iron from the foods you eat. It manages to self-regulate itself, storing
amounts you will need by automatically absorbing more iron when the
need is high, and less when levels are adequate. Nonetheless, iron
deficiency is still a significant public health problem. It can occur
during periods of rapid growth--infancy, adolescence, and
pregnancy--which increase the body's demand for this mineral. In
addition, women who menstruate heavily tend to have lower iron levels.
A chronically iron-poor diet or any condition characterized by prolonged
bleeding (even of small amounts), such as ulcers, hemorrhoids, and
rectal polyps, can lead to iron-deficiency anemia. Many people develop
this type of anemia, for instance, as a consequence of an NSAID-related
ulcer, or one caused by months or years of regularly taking aspirin,
ibuprofen, or other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID).
Are you getting enough vitamin B in your diet?
The name 'vitamin B'
actually refers to a collection of B vitamins, which are known together
as the vitamin B complex. Before the days of being able to study in
detail the chemical structures involved in the many metabolic processes
within our bodies, it was thought that vitamin B was a 'vital amine'
that came from foods such as rice and bread yeast. We know differently
now of course, as the repertoire of essential substances required by the
body continues to expand. Hence, the B vitamins are in fact varied in
their function and structure, unified only by their name which
distinguishes them from vitamin C. Vitamin C and the B vitamins are the
only water soluble vitamins, the others (A, D, E and K) are soluble in
What Do the B Vitamins Do?
Although vitamin B was discovered to be in fact many different
vitamin Bs, each is of critical value to the body. They each have
alternative names that are related to their structure.
- Vitamins B1 and B2 - thiamin and riboflavin
- both of these vitamins are involved in the production of energy. They
are also involved in enzymatic processes of the heart, nerves and
- Vitamin B3 - niacin
- this is important for cardiovascular health and has a role in many
other processes in the body, including the nervous system and digestive
- Vitamin B5 - pantothenic acid
- this is known to be involved in development and the breaking down of
fatty acids, as well as in many other biological reactions.
- Vitamin B6
- pyroxidine - this vitamin plays a role in the breaking down of
protein, and is crucial for maintaining a healthy population of red
blood cells, which carry oxygen around the body.
- Vitamin B7 - biotin - like pyroxidine, biotin is involved in breaking down protein, and it is also necessary in the production of hormones.
- Vitamin B9 - folic acid
- perhaps the most widely known of the B vitamins, folic acid is
recommended during pregnancy for its involvement in DNA replication and
to prevent birth defects.However, it also plays a role in maintaining
red blood cell numbers.
- Vitamin B12 - cobalamin
- like many other B vitamins, cobalamin has a variety of roles in the
body. It is thought to have a crucial role in the function of the
nervous system as well as being involved in red blood cell production.
Should I be taking a vitamin B complex supplement?
The array of B vitamins may be baffling, and looking at what
products are on offer may be even more so. It is often difficult to know
whether you are getting enough of certain vitamins in your diet. B
vitamins are present in many different types of food and eating a varied
diet rich in fruit, vegetable, whole grains and pulses, as well as a
little meat, should be all your body requires. However, we do not always
keep to good eating habits and at different times of the year the
body's demands are different. Unless you have a serious deficiency it is
pretty difficult to home in on which vitamins your body is lacking, but
that does not mean that deficiency is uncommon.
with low income, that may not have good access to fresh whole foods, in
addition to those people with consistently poor eating habits, can be
prey to such deficiencies.
Mild B vitamin deficiency can cause symptoms of anemia, tiredness, depression, muscle cramps, hair loss and poor development in children.
Unfortunately signs are often not recognized, especially when a person
does not outwardly appear to be poorly nourished. Taking a vitamin B complex supplement
can bolster levels of those B vitamins that you might be lacking, and
there is no harm from taking in excess of what you need of others.
now know that folic acid is essential for proper development of the
neural tube (which is the fetus during the first stages of pregnancy).
However more recently, it has also been linked with reduced risk of
contracting certain forms of cancer. While not being effective in
treating cancer, this finding is still excellent news for those with a
family history of cancer that might be at particularly high risk.
