Iron
What it is: It is a chemical element with symbol Fe. In foods, iron is found in two forms, heme (ferrous) iron, which is well absorbed and non-heme (ferric), with low absorbance capacity. Heme iron is found in foods of animal origin and non-heme iron is in foods of vegetable origin and needs vitamin C to be absorbed

How it works: Iron belongs to metals and it is a necessary element for the body as it plays a significant role in the metabolism and the function of many enzymes. It is a necessary prosthetic group for thousands of enzymes and proteins, such as oxygen-transport proteins. In significant iron deficiency, anemia manifests in the body.
