Causes of iron deficiency (ID) include:
Lack of iron in the diet3,6
Your body may not be able to absorb the iron from the food you eat3,6
If you fall within any of these groups, you may be iron deficient.
During each menstrual cycle you lose blood, which contains iron. If the amount of iron in your diet does not match what is lost, you could become iron deficient.3,6
Iron deficiency is common during pregnancy as pregnant women have higher iron requirements for the growth of the placenta and a healthy baby.7
Iron deficiency is common after giving birth due to blood loss at delivery.7,8
Iron is important for energy production and carrying oxygen to your muscles. If you have insufficient iron stores it will impact your well-being and athletic performance.9
Long-term strenuous exercise places you at an increased risk of depleting your iron stores.9
