How can you get enough iron?
The human body needs iron for a lot of reasons. Most of the iron in our body is found in our blood. It is part of the red pigment in blood and helps the blood to carry oxygen, which is then delivered to all of the cells in our body. As a result, severe cases of iron deficiency lead to tiredness and exhaustion, among other symptoms. Many foods have small amounts of iron in them, so people who eat a balanced diet can normally get enough iron that way.
