A reduced iron content in the body requires special attention and correction, since over time it can lead to the development of iron deficiency anemia (anemia). This is a multi-stage serious disease, the cause of which is an imbalance in the direction of the predominance of the expenditure of iron over its intake. It is observed in various physiological conditions or diseases (various blood loss, impaired absorption of iron, insufficient intake of iron from food, increased demand in pregnant women and children, etc.). The main causes of iron deficiency are blood loss and the lack of this most important macronutrient in food.
The role of iron in the body
The role of iron in the body is very extensive:
-ono is part of hemoglobin, a protein necessary for the transfer of oxygen by red blood cells (red blood cells) to tissues (gives off oxygen and takes carbon dioxide); Continue reading

Against the background of the extraordinary diversity of the plant world of our planet, a special place is occupied by a unicellular microalga from the family of oscillating spirulina (Spirulina Platensis) – the first photosynthetic life form on Earth created by Nature itself 3.5 billion years ago. It contains millions of years of evolutionary wisdom encoded in DNA, it is a real living fossil, the composition of which has remained unchanged for hundreds of thousands of years. Continue reading
