Iron (Fe) & iron compounds

Fe is essential nutrients in a large variety of species and involved in diverse biochemical processes, such as internal respiration, oxygen transport, DNA and RNA replication, cell membrane maintenance and health, free radical removal, and others. These essential nutrients may exert toxicity when their concentrations are either too little or too great. (ref. ID; 6719)
