A new study has shown that women who take iron supplements, experience a marked improvement in their exercise performance.


The new study by the University of Melbourne found that iron supplementation improved women's exercise performance, in terms of both the highest level they could achieve at 100% exertion and their exercise efficiency at a submaximal exertion.

Dr Sant-Rayn Pasricha from the Melbourne School of Population and Global Health, who is the lead researcher of the study, said that women who were given iron were able to perform a given exercise using a lower heart rate and at a higher efficiency.

It is the first time researchers have been able to confirm that iron supplementation has beneficial effects on exercise performance as women who were given iron were able to perform a given exercise using a lower heart rate and at a higher efficiency.

The study was published in the journal of Nutrition.
