In brief: Anemia

Iron is a necessary element and basic building block for hemoglobin.
Hemoglobin is the molecule in our red blood cells that transports oxygen from our lungs to the rest of the body. Lack of iron decreases our hemoglobin causing anemia. Anemia leads to fatigue, lethargy, diminished oxygen to organs, and ultimately death if not addressed.
