Both haem and non-haem iron are a part of many enzymes that are involved in:

• cellular respiration

• amino acid metabolism (e.g. carnitine)

• detoxification (as part of cytochrome P450 enzymes in the liver)

• protection against free radical damage

• synthesis of nutrients such as vitamin A

• synthesis of hormones and neurotransmitters (serotonin and noradrenaline)

• synthesis of collagen and elastin.
