Iron is an essential mineral that is a component of hemoglobin, the red pigment of red blood cells (RBC), responsible for the transport of oxygen in the blood. It is also involved in cellular respiration as a component of the enzyme complex cytochrome P450. Iron deficiency is characterized by a sharp fall in hemoglobin levels.
