The role of nutritional iron in military personnel
E Yusufy , S Zareiy
Abstract:   (10920 Views)
Iron has a critical role in muscles activity and as a part of hemoglobin it transfers oxygen from lungs to tissues which it does the same action in muscles. Myoglobin as an oxygen receiver can provide the available oxygen for the mitochondria. The iron is required in cytochrome for ATP production. Activities and aerobic exercises will be limited in iron deficiency and anemia caused by it. Vigorous exercises (such as training military personnel) cause a temporary decrease in serums ferritin and hemoglobin. Iron loss through sweat during exercises is one of the things that can cause loss of iron in military personnel. Iron loss through sweat is much more in men than women. This has caused iron's RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance) for military personnel (Men) during training to be estimated 12mg in a day so it can compensate for loss of iron through sweat. Measurement of ferritin is useful for assessing iron in active military people (M.P) if there is a definite lack of iron usage of supplementary iron with vitamin C (for better absorption) will be useful.
