Iron Toxicity Post #65: There is NO such thing as ‘Iron Metabolism’. There is ONLY Copper<>Iron Metabolism
This iron post has nine articles that examine iron metabolism and homeostasis. But nowhere do they highlight that there is no such thing as ‘Iron Metabolism’. There is only Copper<>Iron Metabolism, and Iron is the dummy!
Ferritin in the serum is a sign of tissue pathophysiology. Without the ceruloplasmin ferroxidase enzyme, iron doesn’t load properly into ferritin. So it gets damaged and takes on the properties of hemosiderin where iron is stored and doesn’t come out.
You are not anemic! You have ‘anemia’ of chronic inflammation, which means you are iron toxic, and it’s being stored in your tissues.
K.I.S.S. Keep it simple searchers. Learn what happens is when iron, when not properly bound by transport or regulatory proteins, is pro-oxidant, and thus, very toxic to our health. Get the proper tests, not ferritin, to know your real status.
In my ever-continuing efforts to get folks from the entire world over to restore and protect their magnesium (Mg) status, I’ve taken a most unexpected and extended journey into and through the wacky, Byzantine of the most revealing world of iron research. Fortunately,...
