Setting The Path Newsletter Part 2b: Essential Ingredients For A Balanced Body – Bowen Therapy And Iron.


So here’s some new facts about iron in meat…and a warning this will contain some large scientific words…

New Zealand Researchers have recently discovered iron levels and bioavailability in meat are dependent on the degree to which meat is cooked and the type of cut. Iron in meat is more readily taken into the body than most other sources because it is mainly present as the more available haem iron. Meat also contains an as yet unideitfied ‘meat factor’ that enhances the uptake of not only meat iron, but also other iron in the same meal, research claims…so eat your vegetables.

Research published by a joint Massey University/AgResearch group has found iron bioavalabilty does vary between cuts and that long slow cooking also reduces iron availability. Spokesperson, Dr Purchas says, “Comparisons of meat cooked to various final temperatures and for different times showed that much of the soluble haem iron was quickly converted to insoluble form with cooking, and with more severe cooking some of the haem iron was converted to the less desirable non-haem form.”
