How to fight against autumn fatigue?
To be able to fight against autumn fatigue, you must first know what is the cause of it. Have you noticed that you lack more energy? That you had difficulty concentrating, that you lost more hair and that your nails were more brittle? Are you more irritable? Do you sometimes have palpitations?
These are all signs that can demonstrate an iron deficiency. Surely you have already heard about the importance of this trace element for health. Well, it may well be that an iron deficiency is the cause of all these inconveniences.
Iron, what does it do?
Indeed, iron plays a major role in the production of energy and in the supply of oxygen to the tissues of the body. Iron stimulates the action of vitamin A which is necessary for the synthesis of DNA, RNA, collagen and antibodies. In addition, it stimulates immune functions by regulating the production rate of T lymphocytes. Finally, iron participates in the production and regulation of several cerebral neurotransmitters and improves the learning process and behavior.
Even if your daily iron requirement is minimal, 18mg/day for women, 10mg/day for men, its deficiency is not uncommon. Up to 60% of the population suffers from iron deficiency due to its difficult absorption in addition to certain substances in the diet that block its absorption.
