Iron deficiency is the most common micro-nutrient deficiency in the world. Amongst the groups exposed to this problem:

- toddlers (still breastfeeding) or someone with a high intake of (cow) milk

- low energy intake (dieting, sports, seniors)

- fertile women (especially in case of heavy monthly bleeding)

- vegetarians

- blood donors

Supplementation is only recommended if you have depleted iron deposits or anaemia confirmed by a doctor. Several factors like coffee, tea, milk and some botanicals might inhibit the absorption of iron, while juice or fruit with vitamin C facilitate the absorption.


People who have haemochromatosis (genetic condition where the body stores too much iron) must be careful not taking too much iron.
