Iron deficiency is a widespread nutritional deficiency, especially in women during pregnancy and in people taking a low iron-rich diet. Its lack causes anaemia. This usually happens when your body does not have enough iron to make haemoglobin, which carries oxygen from the lungs to the bloodstream. The energy in the body is related to the circulation of oxygen.
