Iron, which helps build and replace blood cells that deliver oxygen throughout the body, is an important part of a healthy diet. Iron can be found in foods such as red meat, liver, whole wheat, kidney beans, prunes and raisins. If you're not getting enough of these foods, an iron supplement is recommended. Iron dietary supplements are particularly important for menstruating woman, who may be at risk for iron deficiency due to blood loss, as well as pregnant women, who have a greater need for iron to support enlarged blood volume, and fetal and placental needs. Many multi-vitamins contain iron, but separate iron vitamin supplements are also available in varying dosages to fit your particular needs.**
