Iron is important in women’s health
As a woman there are times when you are more at risk of not having enough iron, such as during your period, or when you might need extra iron, e.g. during pregnancy.
You may also need to think about the iron levels of your children at certain times, especially during growth spurts and when your daughter starts menstruating (often called periods). So, whatever stage of life you are in, iron should be an important part of it. 1
