Iron divider

Iron is one of the most well-known and important minerals in our body. We need iron to produce hemoglobin, which transports oxygen in our blood. In the absence of it, our cells do not get enough oxygen, which eventually leads to fatigue and anemia. However, iron can be a double-edged sword, because excessive intake can also lead to many problems, and when consumed as a supplement, it can become particularly dangerous.
