Dietary acquisition and intestinal absorption in the mammals is the only way by which its systemic iron requirement is fulfilled. 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 the gut microbiota compete with the host iron absorption pathways. Germ free (GF) and control mice fed with iron-sufficient (350 ppm), moderately iron-containing (35 ppm) and iron-deficient (<5ppm) diets for 2 weeks demonstrated a significant resistance to iron deficiency anemia in the GF compared to the controls.
