Like "Just in case! Iron is an oxidant! Young women can need iron more commonly then men. We men have to be a bit more careful. It's important ( if you use an iron supplement) to use a supplement that can be easily assimilated, to avoid additional risks. Getting iron through iron rich whole foods, or natural whole food supplements, is the safest bet. Hint: Beware, you could end up looking like Popeye! Didn't know if you knew that or not."
