Iron is also important in the neurological level, for the neurotransmitters dopamine and serotonin. An iron deficiency causes anemia, fatigue, increased susceptibility to infection, depression.

Copper: è fondamentale per lo sviluppo del sistema nervoso e per il sistema cardiaco. Il rame svolge un ruolo cruciale nella conversione del ferro nella sua forma disponibile ed è importante anche per il sistema immunitario, in quanto mantiene il livello di globuli bianchi. Per queste sue importanti funzioni, una carenza di rame porta a degenerazione del sistema nervoso, insufficienza cardiaca, anemia e indebolimento del sistema immunitario;
