BLOOD SYSTEM FOR PILATES
Iron is the main blood mineral; it is essential in the formation of rich red blood cells. Ninety per cent of the iron content in the body is stored in the bloodstream; the remainder is stored in the bone marrow until required in the formation of blood haemoglobin.
For iron to be absorbed effectively, protein and vitamin C must be present. Excess cooking depletes iron in foods. Iron is vital for the supply of oxygen throughout the body via the haemoglobin from the lungs to the body tissues and myoglobin for the muscle cells.
The mineral copper and the green matter in plants are also essential for iron activity.
A deficiency of the mineral iron often shows as weariness, regular colds and inflammations and lack of energy.
10. CELLULAR SYSTEM
Excess cooking depletes iron in foods. Iron is vital for the supply of oxygen throughout the body via the haemoglobin from the lungs to the body tissues and myoglobin for the muscle cells. Some iron supplements are well balanced but nothing can beat the natural balance of natural foods. Chelated iron tablets are three times more effective than non-chelated. For iron deficiencies such as anaemia, it is vital to obtain more than tablets, as copper, vitamins E and B complex, manganese, calcium and protein are also required.
5. MUSCULAR SYSTEM
Iron is the delivery service for the supply of oxygen to the entire muscular system, as myoglobin. Iron can have two or three electrical charges which allows it to pick up an extra oxygen atom and then deposit the oxygen. Iron is the nucleus of every body cell and it is vital for cleansing the body cells of toxins.
