Extract of curry tree leaves standardised in iron (14 mg)
Description: Plant-based iron
Iron contributes to normal cognitive function.
Iron contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism.
Iron contributes to normal formation of red blood cells and haemoglobin.

Iron contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
Iron has a role in the process of cell division.
Plant-based iron can be obtained from the leaves of the curry tree (Murraya koenigii, Rutaceae). This species is native to tropical Asia, can grow up to 4 metres tall and has compound leaves with small greenish flowers (1). Curry leaves are aromatic and contain carbohydrates, proteins, fibre, minerals, vitamin C, nicotinic acid and carotene (2); from these, plant-based iron can be obtained.
Iron is an essential mineral for humans because it contributes to numerous functions in the body, such as the normal formation of red blood cells and haemoglobin, energy-yielding metabolism, the normal oxygen transport in the body and the normal functioning of the immune system (3). Iron also contributes to normal cognitive function and to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue (3). This mineral is an essential component of numerous proteins and enzymes responsible for biological functions such as oxygen transport, energy production and DNA synthesis (4).
Iron deficiency can lead to anaemia, a condition caused by a decrease in the blood’s haemoglobin content and, usually, in red blood cells. There are several forms of anaemia, with iron-deficiency anaemia being the most common (5). The people most at risk of this type of anaemia are those who require a greater quantity of iron during growth (children and pregnant women), women who suffer from heavy periods and those who have malabsorption problems (6). Symptoms associated with iron deficiency include fatigue, increased heart rate, palpitations, and an increased breathing rate during exercise (4).
