Iron is an essential constituent of the red blood corpuscles, where it is present in the form of hemoglobin. It is also present in muscles, myoglobin and in certain respiratory pigments which are essential to the life and body tissues. Daily Iron requirement of an adult is 15 to 20 mg. The requirement becomes high during pregnancy. The main use of Iron is in the treatment of Iron deficiency anemia. Anemia is a condition characterized by inadequate red blood cells or hemoglobin.

Anemia is much more common among females than in males. Around 10% of girls have anemia at the age of 15, whilst in adult life the incidence is over 30% between ages of 30 and 40, around 20% at the age of 50 and around 30% at the age of 70 years.

Among males the incidence is under 5% until the age of 50 years, and it then rises up to 20% at age of 70 years.
