Mito Health provides comprehensive biomarker analysis covering 67 key biomarkers. Our detailed reports offer insights into various aspects of your health, helping you make informed decisions.

What is Iron?

Iron is an essential mineral that plays a crucial role in various physiological processes within the body. It is a micronutrient necessary for the production of haemoglobin, a protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen from the lungs to tissues throughout the body. Iron also contributes to the formation of myoglobin in muscles, and is involved in enzymatic reactions related to energy metabolism. 

Tron is obtained through dietary sources such as meat, poultry, fish, beans, lentils, and fortified cereals, and its absorption is influenced by factors such as vitamin C intake and the presence of other nutrients in the diet.

How it’s related to your healthspan

Iron deficiency, the most common nutritional deficiency worldwide, can cause iron-deficiency anaemia characterised by fatigue, weakness, impaired cognitive function, and decreased immune function. Chronic iron deficiency can impair physical performance, cognitive development in children, and overall quality of life. 

On the other hand, excessive iron accumulation, known as iron overload or hemochromatosis, can lead to organ damage, particularly affecting the liver, heart, and pancreas. Iron overload increases the risk of conditions such as liver cirrhosis, heart disease, and diabetes, thereby shortening healthspan and overall lifespan.

How to optimise your Iron results

Optimising iron levels involves several strategies aimed at ensuring adequate intake, absorption, and utilisation of this essential mineral. 

Nutritionally, consuming a varied and balanced diet rich in iron-containing foods such as lean meats, poultry, fish, beans, lentils, and leafy green vegetables is crucial. Pairing iron-rich foods with sources of vitamin C, such as citrus fruits, tomatoes, and bell peppers, can enhance iron absorption. Conversely, avoiding excessive intake of iron-blocking substances like tea, coffee, and calcium supplements during meals can help maximise iron absorption. 

For individuals at risk of iron deficiency, iron supplements may be recommended under the guidance of a healthcare provider to restore iron levels effectively. 

Managing stress effectively through relaxation techniques like meditation or yoga can also play a role in optimising iron levels, as chronic stress can affect nutrient absorption and utilisation.
