 Proteins, the building blocks of life are the major source of nutrients. Digested proteins release amino acids to the body for cellular energy generation. In addition to amino acids, proteins also provide metal, particularly iron that is most abundant in the human body. One adult human body requires approximately 3 - 4 grams of iron. Heme and non-heme iron are two forms found in dietary iron. Heme iron is mainly found in meat (hemoglobin and myoglobin), poultry and fish, is well absorbed whereas plants account for the majority of non-heme iron with less well absorption. Functional iron in the form of heme in human body contains more than 95%. Several previous studies demonstrated that heme is efficiently absorbed by the enterocytes in the duodenum of the small intestine. Heme directly affects several human physiological and pathological processes.
