)-- Recent Study Finds That High Doses of Iron Salts Found in Conventional Iron Supplements Can Seriously Impede Iron Absorption
In October 2015, the results of a clinical trial concluded that supplements containing iron salts can decrease iron absorption in iron-depleted young women. Iron salts (known as iron sulfate or ferrous sulfate), a common ingredient in conventional iron supplements, were discovered to increase the production of Hepcidin. Hepcidin is a 25 amino acid peptide hormone that inhibits iron entry into the plasma compartment from the three main sources of iron: dietary absorption in the small intestine, the release of recycled iron from macrophages (a type of white blood cell) and the release of stored iron from hepatocytes (the predominant cell type in the liver). Increased levels of Hepcidin greatly inhibit the absorption of iron in the body.

Iron therapy is essential. According to the World Health Organization, iron is the most common and widespread nutritional deficiency and is the only deficiency still very prevalent in industrialized countries. Anemia affects over 33% of the global population.
