Iron

Iron

Iron is quantitatively the most important trace element in the human body. A human body contains 3-5g of iron, two-thirds of which is bound to haemoglobin. In this role iron is extremely important because as a component of red blood cells, it enables the transport of oxygen in the blood. Iron is also a component of important groups of enzymes, and is therefore involved in energy metabolism. In addition to this, iron is involved in the regulation of oxygen and peroxide. The absorption of iron is significantly promoted by the presence of vitamin C.
