Iron deficiency

Iron deficiency is a reduction of the amount of iron in the body. The iron introduced with food represents only a small part of the iron that our body uses, the remainder comes from the degradation of red blood cells (cells that transport iron to the tissues).

Iron in the body is always linked to specific proteins that are used to store it (ferritin) and to transport it (transferrin, lactoferrin).
