Red blood cells have a really important role in the body, as they are responsible for transporting the oxygen rich blood to the cells and also help the body to eliminate carbon dioxide, however, over time, the blood cells Red ones wear out and die.
Our body needs iron for the production of hemoglobin in the blood, when there is not enough iron, production is affected and red cells in the blood decrease. When there is an iron deficiency, there is also a deficiency of red cells, this leads to anemia, a problem that is very common in children more than adults.
