Iron’s Role In Healing

Recovery isn’t easy. It takes time and patience. It also takes fuel. If you want to fuel your body properly, you should make sure that you are ingesting plenty of iron. In this blog, Ricochet Nutrition explains why iron is so beneficial.

What Does Iron Do?

Iron is a very essential mineral that is not only responsible for supporting hemoglobin cells, which lead to blood oxygenation, but also for healthy skin, nails, and mucous membranes. Iron is also responsible for collagen synthesis and Vitamin D metabolism. Iron also plays a role in bone health.

Iron And Recovery

Since Iron is responsible for transporting oxygen-rich hemoglobin blood cells to the wound site, it is easy to see why it is an important material in terms of healing. Simply put, if the infection site does not receive the oxygen it requires, it cannot fully heal. This prolonged healing process can lead to infection at a wound site. It is important to make sure that you are properly supplementing your body both before and after surgery. Taking iron at the same time as you take Vitamin C will help your body to properly absorb the iron that your body needs to help heal itself.
