Iron is a necessary mineral that the body uses for production of red blood cells. Without the proper number of these cells, the body cannot stay in good health. Iron deficiencies can cause fatigue and increase your chance of infection. For some who have low iron levels and difficulty swallowing pills, liquid iron supplements may be a good alternative.
