ROLE OF IRON IN HUMAN HEALTH
WHY DO WE NEED IRON Iron is a mineral found in every cell in the body. It is vital for both physical health and mental well-being. •
Iron has three main functions : carrying oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body. maintaining a healthy immune system. (Body protects itself from antigens, which includes virus, bacteria and foreign substances that make sick) aiding energy production. (Iron is constituent of several enzymes including : iron catalase, peroxidase, and cytochrome enzymes) •
INSUFFICIENT DIETARY IRON CAN RESULT IN IRON DEFICIENCY fatigue lethargy more frequent infections reduced resistance to cold impaired learning Hypoferrimia •
TYPES OF IRON There are two types of iron in food: Heme iron, derived from the hemoglobin and myoglobin found in meat tissue Non-heme iron, derived mainly from cereals, legumes, fruit and vegetables. •
HEME IRON Heme iron is found only in animal foods. The iron in meat is approximately 40% heme iron and 60% non-heme iron. Plant foods do not contain any heme iron. Heme iron is well absorbed and relatively unaffected by other factors. It is influenced to some extent by the body’s iron stores. The average absorption of heme iron in meat is about 25%.
NON-HEME IRON Non-heme iron is found in plant foods. It is not as well absorbed as heme iron and is affected by both the iron status of an individual, and components in foods eaten at the same time. Absorption of non-heme iron can vary from under 1% in an individual with replete stores to 20% in an individual with depleted iron stores. Generally non-heme iron absorption is less than 5%. •
VITAMIN C IMPROVE NON-HAEM IRON ABSORPTION Vitamin C can increase the absorption of non-haem iron by two to three times. There is a dose-related effect; the more vitamin C in a meal, the greater the iron absorption — up to a limit of around 100 mg vitamin C. Vitamin C is found in fruit and vegetables. Both heat and air reduce vitamin C content, so care should be taken when cooking and storing fruit and vegetables. •
FACTORS AFFECTING NON-HAEM IRON ABSORPTION IMPROVE ABSORPTION INHIBIT ABSORPTION CAULIFLOWER TANNINS IN TEA TOMATOES DIETARY FIBRE KIWIFRUIT SOY PROTEINS MEAT, FISH, POULTRY PHYTATES IN WHOLEGRAINS TAMARILLOS POLYPHENOLS CITRUS FRUIT (ORANGES, GRAPES) OXALAT
IRON SUPPLEMENTS Iron supplements should only be used when advised by a dietitian or prescribed by a medical practitioner for diagnosed iron deficiency. Iron supplements should be used cautiously as they may interfere with the absorption of other nutrients such as zinc and calcium.
IRON ABSORPTION IN HUMAN BODY •
HEPCIDIN REGULATES IRON ABSORPTION Hepcidin is 25 amino-acid peptide hormone. Hepcidin is synthesized by hepatocytes. Hepcidin binds to ferroportin 1 and causes its internalization and degradation thereby decrease iron transfer to blood. Hepcidin function to regulate(inhibit) iron transport across gut mucosa there by preventing normal iron level.
HOW HEPCIDIN REGULATES IRON ABSORPTION
HUMAN DISEASE ASSOCIATED WITH IRON
CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE Heme iron are associated with cardiovascular diseases(CVD) risk. Such as saturated fats or other dietary and lifestyle factors associated with meat intake.
HEMOCHROMATOSIS PROTEIN HFE Hereditary hemochromatosis is inherited disorder that results from an excess accumulation of iron in many organs which is manifested by liver cirrhosis, cardiomyopathy, diabetes mellitus, arthritis, skin pigmentation and if left untreated death. The gene responsible for hereditary hemochromatosis is closely linked to locus for the human leukocyte antigens and has been identified as major histocompatibility complex-encoded class-1 like HFE. Hereditary hemochromatosis is more prevalent than other inherited diseases such as cystic fibrosis, sickle cell anemia, phenylketonuria and Tay-Sachs disease.
THE FRIEDRICH’S ATAXIA PROTEIN Farataxin is mitochondrial protein which involved in mitochondrial iron homeostasis. Farataxin deficiency is due to hyper-expansion of polymorphic GAA trinucleotide repeat which inhibits transcription and falls in levels of mature faratxin m. RNA. Farataxin deficiency in patients leads to develop Friedrich’s ataxia which is a progressive neurological disorder and cardiomyopathy and finally leads to death.
MELANOTRANSFERRIN • Melanotransferrin reported to expressed in amyloid plaques in brain of patients with Alzheimer’s disease. • Melanotransferrin m. RNA widely expressed in tissue and also in salivary glands. • Levels of melanotransferrin m. RNA do not change in presence or absence of an iron chelators or iron source. • Functional studies shown that melanotransferrin transports iron from iron-citrate complexes but not from iron-transferrin complex. • Melanotransferrin has minor role in iron uptake from iron citrate complexes.

• CONCLUSION Heme and non-heme iron are absorbed differently. Meat, fish, poultry and vitamin C improve the absorption of non-heme iron. Tannin, oxalate, phytates and dietary fibre all reduce the absorption of non-heme iron.
