Iron is essential for the body since it is necessary for several metabolic processes and for the synthesis of Haemoglobin, the oxygen transport protein. Usually a balanced and complete diet is sufficient to maintain the equilibrium between daily iron need and physiological iron loss that occurs in every individual. In case of iron deficiency the oxygen supply to body tissues is reduced, leading to symptoms such as fatigue, reduced concentration ability and on the long run, increased hair los
