As with other nutrients such as iodine, a deficiency in iron may impact the health of your thyroid gland. This small gland in your neck secretes hormones that regulate your metabolism.

Multiple studies have found that low levels of iron in the body may be associated with impaired thyroid function and a disruption in the production of thyroid hormones.

Common symptoms of hypothyroidism, or decreased thyroid function, include weakness, fatigue, shortness of breath and weight gain.

Similarly, a deficiency in iron can cause symptoms like fatigue, dizziness, headaches and shortness of breath.

Treating iron deficiency can allow your metabolism to work more efficiently and can fight off fatigue to help increase your activity level.

One study even found that when 21 women were treated for iron deficiency, they experienced reductions in body weight, waist circumference and body mass index.

Unfortunately, many people don’t get enough iron in their diets.

Women, infants, children, vegans and vegetarians are all at a higher risk of iron deficiency.

Be sure to incorporate plenty of iron-rich foods in your diet to help meet your iron needs and maintain your metabolism and energy levels.

You can find iron in meat, poultry, seafood, fortified grains and cereals, leafy green vegetables, dried fruits and beans.
