Optimal Iodine Optimal Iodine

Seeking Health Optimal Iodine is a dietary supplement in the composition of which there is the optimal dose of iodine. With the aim of ensuring the highest bioavailability, various form of iodine were included in the preparation (sodium iodide, potassium iodide and molecular iodine).

The preparation helps to maintaining proper thyroid functions and is conducive to general health and good condition of the organism. It is recommended especially to people endangered with iodine deficiency, i.e. vegetarians and vegans as well as all people who eat little fish and seafood as well as those who due to health reasons limit the supply of salt. Iodine deficits may lead to severe fetus impairment, therefore its supplementation is recommended to pregnant women and those who plan to have children.

Iodine belongs to the group of trace elements, essential for the development and functioning of the organism. It is mostly associated with thyroid, which accumulates as much as 75% of systemic iodine supplies and only in its presence it is able to properly synthesize hormones. The remaining amount is stored in the stomach, kidneys, mammary and salivary glands.

In nature, the highest amounts of iodine can be found in oceans, where after oxidation they reach atmosphere and in the form of waste they reach waters and soils. Then, they are derived by plants and in various forms they become food for animals and humans. People who exclude the supply of fish, seafood and algae, i.e. the most common natural iodine sources are especially prone to iodine deficiencies.

Iodine for thyroid
The organ, which actively stores and utilizes the highest amounts of iodine is thyroid. Thyroid follicles, forming thyroid flesh are equipped in iodine pumps, which are responsible for the uptake of iodine ions and transporting them to the insides of cells.

Thyroid follicles utilize iodine to produce triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4). These hormones control metabolism of the organism, condition effective energy production, regulate body temperature and pulse, are responsible for the level of glucose and even influence the concentration of lipids. For these reasons, iodine deficiencies impair the functions of the whole organism and may be manifested with disorders in the work of many systems and organs dependent on thyroid and hormones secreted by it.

The role of iodine in mental development
By conditioning the synthesis of thyroid hormones (T3 and T4), iodine influences the development of the brain and nervous system, takes part in forming memory and intelligence. Both triiodothyronine and thyroxine play the key role in all the stages of brain growth and are responsible for the correctness of the processes of neurogenesis (the creation of new neurons, cellular proliferation, differentiation and migration of cells, rebuilding of dendritic trees).

Iodine deficiency, especially in the fetal period causes changes in synapses, neurons, myelin sheaths, glial cells, brain morphology and cerebellum. The consequences of this are neurological disorders, worse mental efficiency, mental impairment and in extreme cases even cretinism – a serious mental disease related to severe mental underdevelopment.

Iodine in the function of endocrine glands
Proper supply of iodine is essential for the proper functioning of all endocrine glands. Iodine influences the secretion of corticosteroid hormones of adrenal glands in the situations of stress and danger. 

Iodine stimulates the production of insulin by the pancreas and improves sensitivity of cells to the activity of this hormone. Researchers proved that equaling the level of iodine allows to normalize the concentration of glucose in blood among diabetics.

Iodine influences the work of thymus, which is essential for immunity and maturation of lymphocytes T.

Iodine supports the functions of pineal gland, which by secreting melatonin, regulates daily rhythm of sleep and alertness. Iodine supplementation is recommended to people with calcification of the pineal gland.

Iodine for immunity
Iodine deficiency may impair the ability of the organism to prevent diseases and infections. This element plays a huge role in the physiology of inflammatory response. It increases the movement of granulocytes to the areas of inflammation, stimulates the process of phagocytose, improves the ability of granulocytes to eliminate bacteria.

Iodine has strong antimicrobial effect. It unburdens the immune system in the fight with pathogens. For ages it has been used locally as an antiseptic product. It kills bacteria, viruses, fungi, protozoans and parasites.

Iodine demonstrates antioxidant activity. In the presence of hydrogen peroxide and peroxidase, it plays the function of a donor for electrons, decreasing in this way damages caused by the activity of free oxygen radicals. By the same token, it prevents many diseases induced by oxidative stress and the lack of balance between the processes of oxidation and reduction.

Iodine is characterized with large anticancer potential. It stimulates selective apoptosis, i.e. programmed death of cancer cells. It is effective especially towards the line of cancer cells of thyroid, breasts and prostate.

Iodine in the process of detoxification of the organism
Iodine is a valuable detoxifying element, especially in case of toxic halogens present in food and water (chlorine, fluorine, bromide). It also helps to eliminate heavy metals from the organism, such as mercury. Thanks to its diuretic properties, it facilitates the process of eliminating harmful substances.

Summing up, Optimal Iodine is the best way to level up the concentration of iodine in the organism and prevent its deficiency. It is recommended especially to people dealing with thyroid disorders and pregnant women.

Iodine

Information

Iodine - more than two-thirds of iodine is stored in the thyroid gland and it is a component produced by it hormones - thyroxine and triiodothyronine, which are essential in the metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates and minerals and regulating the processes of growth, causing it usefulness in sports supplementation. It is also the ingredient of weight loss products. Regulates and controls body temperature. Natural source of acquisition of iodine are: bladderwrack, seafood, sea fish and onion and vegetables growing in soil containing this element and most of all iodized salt ..
Deficiency of iodine in the body cause hypothyroidism, and consequently overweight, mental slowing (cretinism inclusive). It
is the cause of a goitre. Iodine deficiency can be caused by rhodanates and polyphenols (e.g. contained in cabbage and cauliflower), hemagglutinin found in legumes.
Excess iodine can result in inhibition of thyroid hormone synthesis (this
happens in a small percentage of cases).
Dosage: Treatment of iodine should be done under medical supervision. Daily demand for adults is 150 mcg. For pregnant women daily demand increases to 175 mcg.


 

Sodium

Information

Sodium is an important component of the intracellular fluids, and is a regulator of acid-base balance. Along with potassium affects the proper of growth and provides the proper functioning of muscles and nerves. The source of acquisition is table salt (NaCl) and bladderwrack, shellfish, bacon, beef, and of plant beets and carrots. People on salt-free diet should avoid, among others, spicy sauces and smoked meats and sausages.
Sodium deficiency is very rare, at heaving sweating after a long effort (e.g. in the marathon).
Excess sodium increases blood pressure (especially for the elderly), edema and increased thirst. Exceeding the daily dose of 14g a day can cause poisoning.


 

Potassium

Information

Potassium and sodium regulate the body's water resources, ensuring normal heart rhythm. Maintaining the proper level of potassium provides the proper oxidation of the brain, lowers blood pressure, increases the permeability of cell membranes (as an antagonist of calcium). It is a base-forming element. It is widely used in sports diet before and after training in the form of supplements, nutrients, vitamin-mineral preparations and minerals, concentrates and ready, isotonic and hypertonic beverages. Natural sources of acquisition of potassium are: vegetable products (bananas, citrus fruits, melons, mint leaves, green vegetables, potatoes) and animal products (sea fish, meat). Potassium is present in the form of organic compounds: citric acids, and fumarates gluconates and inorganic (chlorides, sulfates, oxides and carbonates).
Potassium deficiency (hypokalemia): excessive tiredness, headaches and irritability, problems with sleeping, muscle cramps, constipation. Potassium levels may drop sharply in the event of a reduction in blood sugar levels, prolonged starvation, severe diarrhea. They can occur when too much of strong coffee is consumed, with alcohol abuse and when eating too much sweets.
The excess of potassium (hyperkalemia) is often the cause of depression, hypotension, tingling in the extremities.
