HemoLift – A Look at the role of Iron in the body

The importance of iron (Fe) for the maintenance of good health has been known since ancient times, and there are numerous reports of its use by the Ancient Greeks, Egyptians, Romans, and by Hindi cultures [1]. Although the role of iron for the support of health and the prevention of some diseases was known by ancient practitioners it was not until the 1930s that the role of inorganic iron in hemoglobin synthesis, formation, and oxygen support was determined [2].

Iron is an essential mineral that is found in all living organisms. Despite being a common metal it is not easy for the body to uptake it in the correct form because iron has a readiness to take up oxygen from its surroundings and form insoluble oxides [3]. 

In the body, iron is mainly found in the red blood cells (~67%) as Hemoglobin (Hb; Hgb) and in the muscle cells in the form of Myoglobin (~3.5%)[4]. In the blood itself the main role of hemoglobin is in the transport and transfer of oxygen from the lungs to the body’s tissues and organs. In addition to transport and release, myoglobin (Mb) is also involved in storing oxygen for when it is required by the muscles.

Iron is also a key component of numerous proteins and enzymes involved in energy production and respiration; cytochromes contain about 3% of the body’s iron content. Heme enzymes play an important role in the reduction of oxygen and in electron transfer [5]. Nonheme compounds that require iron include flavin-iron enzymes and the storage compounds ferritin. Around 25% of the body’s iron is stored in the form of ferritin or hemosiderin, while the remaining is functional [4]. 

It is very important to maintain healthy levels of iron to both support blood production and to help maintain good health [6]. It is estimated there are 7.8 million women with iron deficiency in the USA, and ~10 million people in total [7]. Iron deficiencies may result in feelings of fatigue, weakness, a shortness of breath, and in blood loss amongst other symptoms. VitaMonk’s HemoLift has been designed to include ingredients scientifically reported to help support iron absorption, oxygen flow, hemoglobin and myoglobin metabolism, and energy production. The core ingredients in HemoLift and their potential roles in the support of iron related health are as follows: 

Iron (ferrous fumarate)

The important roles that iron plays in the body are mentioned above. Ferrous fumarate (Iron(II) fumarate) is commonly used for the fortification of foods and is included in iron supplements due to its relative bioavailability. As mentioned previously most natural forms of iron are readily oxidized, this means that they often react with food components, this can result in unwanted changes in taste and in fat oxidation [8]. 

Siberian Ginseng and Panax Ginseng 

Siberian (Eleutherococcus senticosus) and Panax Ginsengs are both used in traditional Chinese medicines for the support of human health. They are thought to support fatigue, memory, effects of stress, and a healthier blood circulation.

Although Siberian ginseng is not a true ginseng it is fairly closely related as it is also a member of the Araliaceae plant family [9]. It is often referred to as a ginseng due to it having similar health effects to Panax species. It is rich in Eleutherosides, Ciwujianosides, sesamin, quercetin, and chlorogenic and caffeic acids [9, 10]. When taken as part of a vitamin and trace elements complex it has been reported to support iron metabolism and iron concentration in athletes [11].

Panax is the true ginseng. It is commonly used in traditional Chinese and Korean medications for the support of exercise fatigue, mood, insulin response, and cognition [12–14]. Its main bioactives are known as ginsenosides [15], which themselves can be classified into four main types: Protopanaxatriol, Protopanaxadiol, Oleanolic Acid, and Ocotillol. 

Multivitamin B- : Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine), Vitamin B9 (folic acid), and Vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin)

These water-soluble vitamins play essential roles as cofactors or precursors in the metabolism of cells. Although B vitamins have distinct roles to each other they are historically classed together as they were identified from similar types of foods (e.g., legumes, bananas, yeast, chili, potatoes, and grains). 

Vitamin B6, also known as pyridoxine, is a coenzyme that plays multiple roles in molecular metabolism. The active form is pyridoxal 5'-phosphate (P5P). It is reported to be involved in neurotransmitter biosynthesis and the regulation of homocysteine [16] and may therefore help to support cognition. Vitamin B6 is required for the syntheses of heme in the mitochondria [17]. 

Vitamin B9 is more commonly known as folate or folic acid. It acts as a precursor in the repair and methylation of DNA, and as a cofactor in processes such as cell division [18].

There are several different forms of Vitamin B12, all of which contain cobalt. It is the methylcobalamin and 5-deoxyadenosylcobalamin forms that play a role in human metabolism. This vitamin has an important role in the creation of red blood cells, and is also involved in DNA synthesis and neurological functions [19]. Vitamin B12 is an important coenzyme for both fatty acid and amino acid metabolism and is thus required in all cells. 

Vitamin C (ascorbic acid)

This water-soluble vitamin is essential for human life. It plays roles in protein metabolism and in L-carnitine, neurotransmitter, and collagen biosynthesis. The presence of iron and other cofactors is required for many enzymatic processes, such as the synthesis of catecholamines and L-carnitine. It is a known antioxidant [20] and is also able to regenerate other antioxidants, such as vitamin E, in the body. 

Vitamin C is able to enhance the absorption of nonheme irons, such as those found plant-derived foods [21].

What is Heme?

This is the name for the functional form of iron that is created by syntheses in the mitochondria.

When should I take an iron supplement?

For best absorption iron supplements are usually taken on an empty stomach.

What is the benefit of iron in our body?

It plays a major role in red blood cells and the transfer of oxygen from the lungs to the parts of the body where it is required, such as the gut and spleen. It is also used to store oxygen in the muscles. Furthermore, it is involved in numerous protein and enzymatic processes. 

Which iron supplement is best?

This VitaMonk product is made from only the finest ingredients available, and includes substances reported to aid the absorption of iron in the body. We therefore feel that we offer one of the best iron supplement related products out there.

How much iron do you need a day?

According to the Linus Pauling Institute (LPI) [http://lpi.oregonstate.edu/mic/minerals/iron#table-1] the RDA for iron in adult men aged 19 and above is 8 mg per day. For adult women from 19 to 50 it is 18 mg per day (this decreases to 8 mg/day in older women). The recommended daily allowance is also different for women during pregnancy and breast-feeding; it is recommended that you visit the LPI website if you require further medical information and advice. 

How does vitamin C help absorb iron?

Through helping to increase the absorption of nonheme irons (such as from egg and vegetable sources). 

What is the best treatment for issues related to iron deficiency?

For specific medical advice on how to treat or care for a condition we recommend that you visit a clinic / health provider and speak to your doctor / physician.

Iron deficiency is thought to affect around 20 to 25% of the world’s population, occurring mainly in women and children (~7.8 million women in the united states are affected) [7, 22]. There is also a large need for iron during pregnancy with approximately 1.2 g required from conception to the delivery [22]. 

Can menstruation lead to iron deficiency? 

Yes, losing blood is perhaps the main cause of iron loss from the body in women. On average a woman loses 35 ml of blood per menstrual cycle, this works out to an average iron loss of 0.5 to 0.68 mg per day. Some women can lose in excess of 250 ml of blood, especially if they are using Intrauterine contraceptive devices (IUDs)[22].

Which foods and drinks can reduce iron absorption?

Beverages rich in tannins such as tea and coffee, proteins from soybean, foods rich in calcium such as milk and cheese, and the phytates that are naturally present in legumes and grains.
