Iron is essential for survival of all living organisms. Dietary acquisition and intestinal absorption in humans (and other mammals) is the only way by which systemic iron requirement is fulfilled. In addition, we harbor a diverse group of microbial population in our intestines that also rely on host diet for their iron. It is unclear if and how our gut commensal microbiota compete with the host intestinal iron absorption pathways.
