Iron Toxicity Post #32: How oxidative stress created by iron cause metabolic changes. (Formerly ITP#31)

(Formerly #31)

Please review this important 14-page PowerPoint to better understand the rusting properties of iron that occur inside our bodies:

Welch, K.D., Aust, S. D. (2005). “Iron Chelates and Unwanted Biological Oxidations.”

Yes, this is complex and even I do not fully understand all these concepts. I am unnerved by what this PPT is saying and implying, particularly as it relates to DNA dings, ascorbic acid and lipid peroxidation…

For those who think they are anemic and do not really know their true iron status. Please get the full Monty Iron Panel and gain critical insight into your iron and ceruloplasmin (Cp) status.

Iron supplements only feed these problems when your understanding of your iron status is backwards and you are not iron anemic, but ceruloplasmin anemic!
There is a major difference between iron deficiency and iron dysregulation. Ferritin only blood test is not at all adequate to assessing true iron metabolism status. 

Look at it this way, when was the last time you used the amount of gas in your car determine your fuel efficiency?

A votre sante!
