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 sites 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 do not usually have any terrible consequences. After all, in a lifetime a person eats only 5 g of iodine - a tablespoon! And this is quite enough for "health, mind and growth". That is, daily dosages are measured in micrograms. The officially recommended dose of iodine for adults and children over 5 years is 150 micrograms per day.
Iodine increases lipolysis, activating the function of the thyroid gland, often reduced in obese patients. Thyroid hormones activate the processes of 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 the metabolism in the subcutaneous adipose tissue, activates the breakdown of fats directly in the adipocytes themselves and, thus, contributes to the disappearance of the manifestations of an undesirable companion of obesity - cellulite.
Since one of the reasons for the development of abnormalities in the thyroid gland is a deficiency of iodine, the most accessible means of prevention has always been the use of iodized salt.
I think this is not the best way out. Iodine is a very volatile element. The combination of iodine in salt simply can not be persistent. It is destroyed in a humid atmosphere, in light and at elevated temperature, during cooking. However, even such a primitive method is not used now. As a result, we have a sharp increase in the thyroid gland pathology.
With the exception of iodine, which is a part of multimineral and vitamin preparations, I would not recommend taking additional iodine supplements unless your doctor insists on it. If you live in an area where the soil is poor in iodine, then make sure that your weekly diet includes seaweed or "kelp." The same sea kale, which has long been used in the east and which lies "dreary" jars on the shelves of our stores.
Not so long ago, scientists have determined that iodine, bound to organic molecules, is much more effectively absorbed. It is also more stable when heat treated. This method is very popular, for example, in England and the United States of America, where the powder from kelp - relatives of kelp is added to the bread.
Sea kale 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 functions of the thyroid gland. By the content of iodine, kelp is far ahead of all known terrestrial medicinal plants.
Sea kale contains amazing substances: salts of alginic acid or alginates. In the human gastrointestinal tract they are not digested, but only strongly swell. Alginates have powerful sorbing properties. Passing through the gastrointestinal tract, as a team of janitors along an uncleared street, alginates connect and remove toxins, radionuclides and pathogenic bacteria from the body. Their capacity is enormous, and the binding is so powerful that they are able to extract even lead from bones at a considerable distance from the digestive system.
In addition, with the use of sea kale there is a soft, physiological stimulation of the peristaltic movements of the intestine, the correct rhythm of digestion is restored, and stagnant phenomena in the intestine are eliminated. This property of kelp is especially valuable for the inhabitants of cities, often experiencing the consequences of hypodynamia and high-calorie food. Even for a long time chained to bed patients who took sea kale restored normal digestion and got rid of constipation.

Iodine

  1. Iodine
    Function Iodine is an indispensable substrate in the synthesis of thyroid hormones, which are among the most important metabolic regulators (1). Thyroid hormones are needed for normal growth and development, to absorb oxygen in the cells and to maintain metabolic rate (2). Thyroid hormones are also of great importance for mental development and delay
  2. IODINE
    There is another hormone, which is a modified amino acid. True, if the structure is a little more complicated than the structure of epinephrine or histamine. In order to preserve the clarity of the presentation, I will begin by introducing a new body. The cartilage protruding on the front surface of the neck, called a Adam's apple in a steam, is more correctly called a thyroid cartilage. Shchitovidnym it or him name because the
  3. Iodine
    CLINICAL PICTURE If iodine vapors get into the respiratory tract, they may be affected. Concentrated iodine solutions taken internally cause severe gastrointestinal burns. ACTION AT THE CALL It is necessary to wash the stomach through a probe using 0.5% sodium thiosulfate solution or a starch suspension. Assign sodium thiosulfate IV / in a drip in a dose of up to 300 ml of 30% r-ra per day. Treatment of a gastrointestinal burn is similar
  4. Iodnegative plots
    I use my classification and in this edition also include sites with a negative reaction to iodine to atypical and abnormal changes. My opinion is taken into account in the newest international nomenclature. In Section 2.2, I have already described an iodine test by Schiller. This test has been widely used in recent years. Colposcopically, we can diagnose and viral infections,
  5. TYROXIN
    The search for a real thyroid hormone began immediately after the scientists realized the importance of iodine for normal thyroid activity. 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 allow to differentiate the thyroid crisis from severe hyperthyroidism do not exist. In addition to the known signs and symptoms of hyperthyroidism, the thyroid crisis usually causes fever (the temperature often exceeds 37.8 ° C) and tachycardia (the pulse exceeds 100 beats per minute). Additional features include goitre, congestive cardiac
  7. Physiological and hygienic assessment of basic microelements.
    Microelements are chemical elements found in the tissues of the human body in concentrations of 1: 100,000 or less. To microelements also include chemical elements, in low concentrations contained in water, soil, etc. Some trace elements are absolutely necessary for the most important processes of the vital activity 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 have had multi-node euthyroid goiter for many years. Increased secretion of thyroid hormones often occurs due to the remaining hyperplastic tissue of the thyroid gland (mixed or biodegradable goiter) and less often due to hyperfunction of the nodes. Tirotoksikoz in patients with multi-node euthyroid goiter is provoked by the reception of large
  9. Lowering the function of the thyroid gland (hypothyroidism)
    The main function of the thyroid gland is to produce hormones of 1-thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). The only physiological role of iodine is participation in the production of these hormones: the daily requirement for it is 75-150 μg. Whatever chemical form iodine enters the body, it eventually reaches the thyroid in the form of iodide. The gland tissue has the ability to capture
  10. Physiological features of baby 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 looseness of the stratum corneum, increased humidity and temperature, the transition of skin pH 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 species composition of the microflora, the time interval between the next treatment of the hands, the cost, the degree of adverse effects on the health of the medical staff. The main properties of hand treatment: Recommended active components of antiseptic drugs: alcohols, chlorhexidine, iodine and iodine preparations,
  12. DISINFECTION OF EGGS RECEIVED FROM SICK BIRD
    Eggs obtained from sick birds and intended for sale in the trade network, public catering establishments, for the production of melange and other products, as well as for incubation in cases where this is stipulated by legislative regulations, are disinfected. For disinfection, most often use chlorine lime, chloramine, iodine, formaldehyde in pure form or in combination with other disinfectants
