Iron contributes to normal blood formation and energy production. Molybdenum possesses antioxidant properties and is necessary for the function of the immune system. See Organic Iron with Molybdenum Supplement benefits below.
Matrix Nutrients Iron and Molybdenum work synergistically together and help enhance the body’s utilization of each mineral.
Iron is the fourth most common element on the planet, but the human body only contains traces of it, which is why it is considered a trace or micro element.
The main role of iron in the body is in the red blood cells, where it combines with a protein and copper to form a substance called hemoglobin. Almost two thirds of the iron in the body is found in hemoglobin, the protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen to tissues. Around 25% of iron is stored within the liver, spleen, bone-marrow and muscles, and approximately 4% is used within myoglobin and iron-containing enzymes.
Hemoglobin is the oxygen carrier protein in red blood cells. It is also the protein that gives red blood cells their red color. Iron is the essential element needed by the body to produce sufficient amounts of hemoglobin. If iron stores are low, normal hemoglobin production slows down, which means that the lungs receive less oxygen, resulting in symptoms such as fatigue, dizziness and lowered immunity.
Since our body can’t produce iron itself we need to make sure we consume sufficient amounts of iron in the food that we eat or add a supplement to our diet.
