Is there a danger of iron toxicity?

The danger of iron toxicity is rare due to fact that iron absorption is closely regulated and decreases when iron stores are full. A genetic defect called hemochromatosis, most common in men, causes excessive iron absorption and may result in damage to the heart, liver, spleen, and pancreas. Iron supplements are hazardous for children to ingest and should be kept out of the reach of children.

What are some dietary sources of iron?

Food iron is presented to the body as “heme” iron, found only in animal products, or as “non-heme” iron, which is found in plant foods and about 60% in animals. The non-heme iron is not as well absorbed as heme iron. Liver, oysters, shellfish, kidney, lean red meat, poultry, and fish are sources of “heme” iron. Dried beans, dried fruits, black-strap molasses, dark green leafy vegetables, prune juice, iron fortified cereals, and lima beans are good sources of "non heme" iron. Combine non-heme sources of iron with vitamin C rich foods or supplements to enhance iron absorption.

What causes iron deficiencies?

There are many factors that may contribute to iron deficiency and iron deficiency anemia including: blood loss, impaired iron absorption, insufficient diet, and higher physiological demands.1
