Iron Deficiency

Quick summary of the science :

Iron deficiency comes in various forms, including absolute iron deficiency, characterized by a clear shortage of iron in the body, and functional iron deficiency, where iron may be present, but it isn't effectively utilized, and understanding these distinctions is crucial as they carry unique implications for our overall health and well-being.

While iron supplementation can be a life-saving intervention for individuals who are truly deficient, it also presents challenges for those with functional iron deficiency or who are already iron-replete, emphasizing the need for careful consideration when approaching iron supplementation.
