Everyday life and iron: which habits to adopt
Iron is a very important element for the body: it contributes to the formation of red blood cells and haemoglobin and facilitates the transport of oxygen in the blood.
Iron also plays a role in energy metabolism, contributes to the normal function of the immune system and plays a role in the normal maintenance of the cognitive function of children and adults. An iron deficiency
, therefore, can cause certain symptoms and disorders that can affect our daily life.
A DEFICIENCY THAT CAN AFFECT DAILY LIFE
A general feeling of tiredness is one of the most common symptoms associated with a deficiency or increased need for iron.
This feeling of exhaustion, if prolonged over time, can compromise the good quality of daily life.
Under normal health conditions, i.e., in the absence of diseases that can cause disorders in the absorption of iron
, a varied and balanced diet
is sufficient to maintain the correct levels of iron in the blood. However, some specific physiological conditions, such as pregnancy, breastfeeding or menstruation
, may result in increased body iron requirements. Childhood and adolescence also requires an adequate intake of iron to facilitate the normal physical and cognitive development of children
IRON AND EVERYDAY LIFE: WHEN DIET NEEDS TO BE SUPPLEMENTED
Ensuring an adequate daily iron intake is important at all stages of life. The importance of adequate iron supplementation is therefore evident, especially when diet and good habits adopted in daily life cannot guarantee the normal body supply of this nutrient.
The SiderAL® range of food supplements
is designed to support iron intake in case of deficiency or increased need for this nutrient. Thanks to the exclusive Sucrosomial® Technology
, the Sucrosomial® Iron
contained in SiderAL®
food supplements passes through the gastric environment and is absorbed directly in the intestine without causing the most common side effects related to iron intake
(bad taste, sense of heaviness in the stomach).
