I don't know if I should take iron or not.. anyway, i'm 17 & quite active, but I've never taken iron supplements before. I'm taking b12 though, and i try to eat lots of foods high in iron especiaslly green leafy veggies and beans, and I take vit C with it. I dopn't feel tired or anything, but should i still take iron? cause i've heard that it's toxic unless you're really deficient. I don't even know if i get too much iron (or not) in my diet and how much it absorbs, so if i take iron i'm scared that i'm going to overdose. Has anyone else NEVER taken iron before as a vegetarian/vegan and still feel fine, or know someone who doesn't take iron?
