Your body is dependent upon a variety of minerals for every physical function, but it cannot make them.  In addition to eating high-mineral-content foods, the vast majority of people need to take a mineral supplement (or supplements) in a format the body can easily use. Whole-food derived minerals are the most absorbable. Establishing and maintaining an adquate iron level is critical for health and athletic performance, particularly among female athletes.  Iron ensures the oxygenation of the blood, tissues and cells; it improves circulation and enhances motor function.

A variety of laboratory tests are used to evaluate iron deficiency. The most sensitive clinical test for mild iron deficiency measures serum ferritin. Serum ferritin may decline to 12 mcg/liter without visible symptoms. With serious iron deficiencies, the level of the iron-transport protein in the blood, transferrin, is elevated, but it contains less iron than usual (less than 16% saturation). With severe deficiency hemoglobin levels decline and small red blood cells appear, a condition called microcytic anemia, and the packed volume of red blood cells, the HEMATOCRIT, declines.

Ferritin levels are an excellent marker to determine iron stores. We have found that ferritin levels between 40 and 60 ng/ml provide a the best balance between adequate and excessive levels of iron.  You can check your levels of ferritin here with a Comprehensive Iron Profile
