Iron

Iron is an essential part of haemoglobin, the red pigment in blood which is needed to transport oxygen around the body. There are two types including heam iron and non-heam iron. Heam iron comes from animal sources and can be better absorbed than non-heam iron. Non-heam iron comes from plant sources.
