Iodine


Lack of iodine in the body, which can lead to negative health effects, occurs only in rare cases, because there are few real iodine deficiency on earth. And they are all known. This is a number of regions of China, mountainous regions of Africa, etc. Most of the territories of Russia, unfortunately, also belong to the regions of moderate iodine deficiency. But at the same time, most of its citizens usually do not have any terrible consequences. After all, for the whole life a person eats only 5 g of iodine - a tablespoon! And this is quite enough for "health, intelligence and growth." That is, daily dosages are measured in micrograms. The official recommended dose of iodine for adults and children over 5 years old is 150 micrograms per day.
Iodine increases lipolysis by activating the function of the thyroid gland, often reduced in obese patients. Thyroid hormones activate catabolism in adipose tissue to provide the body with energy and increase the level of catecholamines, the most important activators of lipolysis. Bioavailable iodine normalizes metabolism in the subcutaneous fatty tissue, activates the breakdown of fats directly in adipocytes themselves and, thus, contributes to the disappearance of manifestations of an undesirable satellite of obesity - cellulite.
Since one of the reasons for the development of disorders in the thyroid gland is iodine deficiency, the use of iodized salt has always been considered the most accessible means of prevention.
I think that this is not the best way. Iodine is a very volatile element. The combination of iodine in salt simply cannot be persistent. It is destroyed in a humid atmosphere, in the light and at elevated temperatures, during cooking. However, now even such a primitive method is not used. As a result, we have a sharp increase in thyroid pathology.
With the exception of iodine, which is part of multimineral and vitamin preparations, I would not recommend taking additional iodine supplements if your doctor does not insist on this. If you live in an area where the soil is poor in iodine, then make sure that your weekly diet contains seaweed or "kelp." The same sea cabbage, which has long been consumed in the east and which lies in the "dreary" jars on the shelves of our stores.
Not so long ago, scientists determined that iodine associated with organic molecules is absorbed much more effectively. It is more stable during heat treatment. This method is very popular, for example, in England and the United States of America, where brown algae powder - relatives of kelp are added to bread.
Seaweed has in its composition a large amount of easily digestible iodine (on average, up to 0.3% of the dry weight) associated with organic molecules. Therefore, it is easily used by the human body, normalizing the function of the thyroid gland. The content of iodine laminaria far ahead of all known terrestrial medicinal plants.
Sea kale contains amazing substances: alginic acid salts or alginates. In the gastrointestinal tract of humans, they are not digested, but only greatly swell. Alginates have powerful sorption properties. Passing through the gastrointestinal tract, like a team of janitors on an uncleaned street, alginates bind and excrete toxins, radionuclides and pathogenic bacteria. Their capacity is huge, and the binding is so powerful that they are able to extract even lead from the bones at a considerable distance from the digestive system.
In addition, when using seaweed, mild, physiological stimulation of peristaltic movements of the intestine occurs, the correct rhythm of digestion is restored, and congestion in the intestine is eliminated. This property of kelp is especially valuable for residents of cities who often experience the effects of physical inactivity and high-calorie foods. Even for a long time bedridden patients taking sea kale restored normal digestion and relieved constipation.

Iodine

  1. Iodine
    Function Iodine is an indispensable substrate in the synthesis of thyroid hormones, which are among the most important regulators of metabolism (1). Thyroid hormones are needed for normal growth and development, for the absorption of oxygen in the cells and for maintaining the intensity of metabolism (2). Thyroid hormones are also important for mental development and delay
  2. IODINE
    There is another hormone, which is a modified amino acid. True, if the structure is a bit more complicated than the structure of epinephrine or histamine. In order to preserve the clarity of presentation, I will begin with the introduction of a new body. The cartilage protruding on the front surface of the neck, referred to as Adam's apple in the people, should be called thyroid cartilage. Thyroid is called because its
  3. Iodine
    CLINICAL PICTURE If iodine vapor enters the respiratory tract, they may be damaged. Concentrated iodine solutions, taken orally, cause severe burns of the gastrointestinal tract. ACTIONS ON THE CHALLENGE It is necessary to wash the stomach through a probe using 0.5% solution of sodium thiosulfate or a suspension of starch. Assign sodium thiosulfate in / in the drip in a dose of up to 300 ml of 30% p-ra per day. Treatment of a gastrointestinal burn is similar.
  4. Iodine negative areas
    I use my classification and in this edition I also attribute areas with a negative reaction to iodine to atypical and abnormal changes. My opinion is taken into account in the latest international nomenclature. In Section 2.2, I already described the Schiller iodine test. This test has received widespread in recent years. Colposcopically, we can diagnose and viral infections,
  5. TYROXIN
    The search for the true thyroid hormone began immediately after scientists realized the importance of iodine for the normal functioning of the thyroid gland. In 1899 a protein containing iodine was isolated from the gland. This protein had properties inherent in a family of proteins called globulins, and was therefore called thyroglobulin. This protein could reduce the severity of symptoms of hypothyroidism in smaller doses,
  6. Severe hyperthyroidism and thyroid crisis
    Definitions Absolute symptoms that differentiate thyroid crisis from severe hyperthyroidism do not exist. In addition to the known signs and symptoms of hyperthyroidism, thyroid crisis usually causes fever (the temperature often exceeds 37.8 ° C) and tachycardia (pulse exceeds 100 beats per minute). Additional features include goiter, congestive heart
  7. Physiological and hygienic assessment of the main trace elements.
    Trace elements are chemical elements found in the tissues of the human body in concentrations of 1: 100,000 or less. To trace elements also include chemical elements in low concentrations contained in water, soil, etc. Some trace elements are absolutely essential for the vital processes of the human body, as well as for the normal course of many metabolic processes.
  8. Multinodular toxic goiter
    Thyrotoxicosis can develop in patients, most often in women, who for many years had a multinodular euthyroid goiter. Increased secretion of thyroid hormones occurs more often due to the remaining hyperplastic thyroid tissue (mixed or based goiter-induced goiter) and less often due to hyperfunctioning of the nodes. Thyrotoxicosis in patients with multinodal euthyroid goiter is triggered by taking large
  9. Decrease in thyroid function (hypothyroidism)
    The main function of the thyroid gland is to produce the hormones 1-thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). The only physiological role of iodine is participation in the production of these hormones: the daily need for it is 75–150 μg. In whatever chemical form iodine enters the body, it eventually reaches the thyroid gland in the form of iodide. Gland tissue has the ability to capture
  10. Physiological features of children's skin
    The protective function of the skin in children is imperfect. Due to the inferiority of the fibrous structure, the skin is subject to mechanical, thermal, chemical and radiation damage. Due to the friability of the stratum corneum, increased humidity and temperature, the transition of the pH of the skin to a neutral or slightly alkaline environment, especially in infants, develops pathogenic bacteria, viruses, fungi, as a result
  11. Selection of drugs for the treatment of hands
    The choice of the drug depends on many factors, including the type of medical activity, the specific composition of the microflora, the time interval between the next treatment of hands, the cost, the degree of adverse effects on the health of medical staff. The main properties of the means for the treatment of hands: Recommended active ingredients of antiseptic preparations: alcohols, chlorhexidine, iodine and iodine preparations,
  12. DISINFECTION OF EGGS RECEIVED FROM SICK POULTRY
    Eggs obtained from sick birds and intended for sale in the trading network, catering establishments, for the production of melange and other products, as well as for incubation in cases where this is provided for by legislation, are disinfected. For disinfection most often used bleach, chloramine, iodine, formaldehyde in pure form or in combination with other disinfectants
