Background and Objectives: Iron can play an important role in exercise performance of women. The purpose of the present research was to determine the effects of combined exercise training and Feroglobin supplementation on serum iron and lipid profile in Women with iron deficiency anemia.

Methods: In this study, 36 trained females with iron deficiency anemia (mean age, 26.8±6.3 years and body mass index, 19.55±4.4kg/m2) of Lahijan city, were selected as subjects and randomly divided into three groups of supplement+combined training, placebo+combined training, and control. Iron level and lipid profile were assessed before and after 8 weeks of combined training program and supplementation. Data were analyzed using paired t-test, one way analysis of variance, and Tukey post hoc test. The significance level was considered to be p<0.05.
Results: Eight weeks of Feroglobin supplementation and combined training caused significant increase in iron levels in the supplement group compared to before training and nutritional program and compared to the placebo and control groups (p<0.05). In addition, lipid profile had a significant improvement in both experimental groups compared to before training and supplementation program, which also showed a significant difference from the control group (p<0.05).
Conclusion: Feroglobin supplementation along with combined trainings in women with iron deficiency anemia can cause a significant increase in the iron levels, but it seems it has no significant effect on lipid profile in these subjects.
