The idea that nobody is iron deficient and everyone is iron dysregulated has gone mainstream the past couple of years. The theory is that even though your ferritin level is single digits you have plenty of iron, its just stored deep in your tissues where blood tests don't measure. What if there is another side to the story?
Caitlyn Hartigan, founder of the Iron Protocol, joins us again to talk about iron deficiency and all of the myths surrounding it. She often says that iron overload experts do not understand iron deficiency. We talk about the iron recycling system, iron's cofactors, iron infusions, vitamin D, how ferritin can be an antioxidant, and the relationship between iron and pathogens.
