Iron is a Trace element indispensable for our health because it ensures the transport and distribution of oxygen in the blood and the formation of red blood cells.

Deficiency or overexposure to various elements has significant effects on human health.

Iron is an essential element for almost all living organisms because it is involved in a wide variety of metabolic processes.

But the organism does not synthesize it, so it must be found in the diet or in supplementation.

His atomic number? 26!

A bit of history

Since ancient times, man has recognized the special role of iron in health and disease.

The Egyptians, Hindus, Greeks and Romans used it for medicinal purposes.

During the 17 th century, iron was used to treat chlorosis (a plant disease characterized by discolouration and yellowing of leaves), a condition often resulting from this deficiency, but it was not until 1932 that scientific evidence established that inorganic iron was necessary for the synthesis of hemoglobin.

For many years, nutritional interest in iron focused on its role in hemoglobin formation and oxygen transport.

Do you know that?

We have 3 to 4 g of iron in the red blood cells.

The rest is stored in the liver, spleen and bone marrow.

The form in which iron is stored in our bodies is called ferritin, which can be measured by a blood test.

Most of it is needed for the daily production of haemoglobin and comes from the recycling of old red blood cells .

From adolescence onwards, a woman's daily iron requirements increase. 

Women have a higher need for it ( menstruation or periods), Vegetarians, Vegans (they don't eat meat) because they lose blood every month during their period. 

That's why women between 19 and 50 years of age should take a dose of 18 mg a day, while men of the same age can get away with only 8 mg.

What for?

Iron combines with proteins to produce haemoglobin, a protein found in red blood cells that transports oxygen from the lungs to various tissues in the body.

Hemoglobin accounts for about two-thirds of the iron in the body. 

If you don't have enough, your body can't produce enough healthy, oxygen-carrying red blood cells.

Every cell in the body needs this element, and a lack of red blood cells leads to an anemia.

Iron is therefore one of the most vital minerals (trace element).

Essential for the proper functioning of many enzymes, it plays an important role in the anti-infectious immune response.

If the body does not receive enough oxygen, fatigue will set in.

Managing your Iron level well means eliminating fatigue. 

This exhaustion can affect everything from brain function to the immune system's ability to fight infections. 

Severe deficiency in a pregnant woman may increase the risk of premature birth.

Iron is necessary to maintain health.

It helps convert food into energy.

Its traditional uses

It is used for :

  • Fighting fatigue
  • Fighting anaemia
  • Helping with physical and mental effort

Studies? Yes !

In a series of preliminary studies involving the genetic data of more than 500,000 people, a team of international scientists, led by Imperial College London, has explored the role that iron plays in more than 900 diseases.

However, getting the right amount of this element in the body is a fine balance: in small doses it can lead to anaemia, but in excess it can lead to a range of problems, including liver damage.

As for a woman's iron status at the time of conception, it is important for a healthy pregnancy.

Despite the physiological changes in the mother that improve iron absorption, many women develop iron deficiency or iron anemia during pregnancy. 

The World HealthOrganization estimates that the global prevalence of anaemia in pregnant women is 42%; the prevalence of anaemia is much higher in less developed countries than in industrialized countries, with nearly 90% of these anaemic women living in Africa or Asia.

Severeiron deficiency anemia has been associated with an increased risk of maternal death and an increased risk of low birth weight infants (<2

What is the use of Iron in the homeopathic product Energy Blood : For the transport and distribution of oxygen in the bloodstream

We pay great attention to the quality of our specialities in our Homeophyto gums.

It is a mineral or trace element that is essential for the formation of stem cells and ensures the transport and distribution of oxygen in the blood.

The form best assimilated by the human organism is Gluconate compared to Sulphate.

Diagnosis and treatment of iron deficiency without anaemia RMS_idPAS_D_ISBN_pu2009-40s_sa08_art08


THEIRON ENTERS INTO BONE MOULD PRODUCTION: Blood cells are produced in the spongy tissue of the bones ofthe bone marrow. It enables the process of blood transformation. (hematopoiesis)

During heavy menstrual fatigue , women often forget that the lack of this mineral is a major cause of menstrual fatigue . is the cause of their condition.

A lack of this mineral causes anaemia: your body no longer produces enough red blood cells to transport oxygen in the blood. Even if it is not systematic, anemia can sometimes cause palpitations because the heart beats harder to compensate for the lack of red blood cells and increase the volume of oxygen transported.

Also, from the age of 50 onwards, this lack may be a sign of internal micro-bleeding linked to polyps or gastritis.

Vegans and vegetarians often experience this deficiency in their bodies and must supplement themselves to avoid this.

Often used as a dietary supplement, the quality of our component brings benefits in our treatment combining homeopathy and phytotherapy. 

What are its virtues: better sublingual assimilation

Iron Gluconate is one of the most easily assimilated forms of iron gluconate (see the study on diagnosis and iron deficiency).

Thus, the Laboratory HOMEOGUM formulated its product Energy Blood with 7.5 mg daily intake.



Triple Action: Division, Distinction & Growth in Cell Division

Transmitted by food, it is less well assimilated than when taken directly as a supplement, especially by the intravenous versus sublingual route, where 80% of the component is not lost.

intravenous versus sublingual iron assimilation

Especially in women of childbearing age, breastfeeding or because of menstrual discharge.

It participates in the energetic metabolism of muscle proteins and in respiration to fix oxygen.

In addition, it also allows for better cell division, distinction and growth in cell division.
