This salt is one of the components found in blood (red blood cells) and the hematopoietic organs (spleen, bone marrow, muscles, intestines). Ferrum phosphoricum plays a significant role in blood tonicity and blood circulation throughout the body.
A deficiency in iron phosphate leads to a loss in muscle tone and venous stasis due to the relaxation of the vascular muscles. This, in turn, leads to phlebitis and periphlebitis.
The loss of muscle tone occurs in the muscles of the digestive tract, leading to chronic constipation. At times, the alimentary bolus will travel through the intestines without being absorbed, causing diarrhea of non-digested food. Iron deficiency is characterized by chronic paleness of the face. Yet, the mildest emotion or effort will immediately provoke flushed cheeks.
The eye sclera (white of the eye) has a bluish tint. Condition generally worsens with heat and movement, but improves in cold temperatures.
