Abstract

Iron, copper, and zinc are essential micronutrients responsible for various physiological functions. In this chapter, we are going to discuss epidemiology of iron deficiency, physiology of iron absorption, role of hepcidin, iron content in food, bioavailability of iron, symptoms and signs of iron deficiency, and its treatment with oral and parenteral formulations. Later, we are discussing copper and zinc functions, daily requirements, absorption, factors affecting bioavailability, iron-copper-zinc interactions, and symptoms and signs of their deficiencies.
