Iron is also important for the metabolism of B vitamins, calcium and copper, boosts the immune system and is beneficial for the health of our hair.Muscle ache, headache, low energy, faintness, brittle nails and hair loss are all signs of iron deficiency.As well as keeping blood healthy, iron is involved to help maintain resistance to infection and in helping to maintain intellectual performance. But sometimes our diets are not well balanced and everyday activities, even drinking tea or coffee, can inhibit iron absorption.
