Iron is a key component in producing a protein in red blood cells that carry oxygen from your lungs to every cell in your body. Iron gives you energy because it allows your tissues, muscles and cells to receive and absorb oxygen. With proper oxygenation and blood flow your muscles tire slower, your brain thinks faster and your stamina lasts longer.
