Hi this is Rachael Richardson with Nutrolution in Miami Beach, Florida. In this clip we are talking about how is iron stored and transported in the body and so iron is a mineral and it actually is transported right through our blood to all of our cells, all of our cells need iron. They need iron for energy. They need iron to reproduce themselves so to continue living basically. We need iron for lots and lots of different functions. The major storage facility in the body is the liver just like the liver is the storage facility for lots of nutrients and compounds, the same for iron and I do recommend that you get your iron through your animal tissue just like we have it in our tissue, all of the animals that we consume or all the tissue in the form of things like this, this is actually country bacon and this is farm fresh from a form organically raised. But I do recommend that you focus on getting your meats not just your red meats but all different kinds of meats eggs, and other animal products to help make sure that you are getting plenty of iron in your diet. This has been Rachael with Nutrolution in Miami Beach, Florida.
