Iron supplements and endurance
The results show that the women in Group 1 who took the iron tablets daily were able to better their time taken to complete the 5 km run on the treadmill. Whereas the women in Group 2 (given the placebo) did not show any improvement in their performance.
|Group||Time taken to complete 5 km on treadmill (minutes)|
|Before consuming supplements||After consuming supplements|
|1 – provided with iron supplement||24.7||22.9|
|2 – provided with placebo||24.9||24.6|

Ensure that a doctor is consulted before the iron supplements are prescribed to the participants.
