All individuals need iron, some people need iron as a supplement due to deficiency. Iron is a mineral and it travels through the body to provide oxygen to the blood. It's IMPORTANT to know that iron absorbs in the bloodstream better when you consume vitamin C during the day or night. Vitamin C consumptions are: fruits, 100% orange juice, grape juice, lemon juice, or cranberry juice (Ocean Spray). Also making daily fruit smoothies will help absorb the iron quicker as well. The liquid form of vitamins are chosen often than tablets, because they absorb quicker without any help. To assist the iron to absorb into the blood quicker, I just make a fruit bowl, eat the sliced fruit as snack during any time of day.
Avoid taking iron supplements with milk products such as cow's milk, yogurt, chocolate, and cheeses, due it making the stomach weak which can cause diarrhea. Substitute cow's milk with almond milk to prevent an interaction with the iron supplement.

Hi MsDora, thanks for stopping by. Iron is especially important for African Americans, due to many of us being Anemic or iron deficient at some percentage in the blood.
