Iron is a redox active metal involved in the oxidation-reduction reactions and regulation of cell growth and differentiation. Iron is an integral part of many proteins and enzymes that maintains various physiological functions. Most of the human body's iron is contained in red blood cells. Despite iron being an abundant trace metal in food, millions of people worldwide suffer from anemia. Iron deficiency results in impaired production of iron-containing proteins and inhibition of cell growth… Expand
