Iron Toxicity

While the body can't live without iron, an overabundance can be dangerous as well. Iron toxicity can occur because the body doesn't have a natural way to excrete iron; too much can cause liver or heart damage. So always consult with your doctor who can evaluate your individual needs and prescribe accordingly.

Remember, iron equals energy, so make sure you're getting the amount you need to compete with all those everyday superheroes out there.
