Iron Absorption: List Of Research-Backed Claims

Iron is an essential mineral needed for maintaining your blood healthy and many other functions in your body. Iron differs from other minerals because the iron balance in the body is regulated by absorption only because there is no physiologic mechanism for excretion.

It’s easier for your body to absorb heme iron (iron in meat) than non-heme iron (iron in plants).

There are nutrients, according to research, that can help your body with the absorption when consumed together with iron-rich foods.
