Data Confirm That Iron Supplements Improve Exercise Performance In Women

April 16, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
An Australian study that examined data collected and merged from 22 small clinical trials confirmed that women who take iron supplements improved their exercise performance and efficiency at all levels of exertion. The researchers saw the effect mainly among women who had been iron deficient or anemic at the start of studies, and in female athletes who were in training. The study also confirmed that iron deficiency impairs exercise performance in women. Iron deficiency also produces fatigue and lethargy,  and often results in iron deficiency anemia.
