Iron takes over an important function during the transport and the storage of oxygen, during the transfer of electrons as well as numerous oxidation and reduction reactions in the human body. Iron is a part of the red blood pigment haemoglobin which transports the oxygen through the blood. As a cofactor of many enzymes, iron is involved in the cellular energy production, the synthesis of neurotransmitters, unsaturated fatty acids, DNA and liver detoxification.
Iron deficiency is a widespread nutrient deficiency and mostly women are affected. An iron deficiency can cause chronic fatigue, low blood pressure and palpable skin.
Iron pyrophosphate is a non-ion iron form which is not absorbed through ion channels as other ion-based minerals. Therefore, it does not compete with other minerals and guarantees a higher bioavailability. It has no metallic taste and it does not change product properties.
