Kelp - natural source of iodine
Iodine is one of the elements that is present in the body in the smallest quantities and belongs to the so-called trace elements. This with activating substances that are vital for the proper functioning of the body and a beautiful appearance.
The most important role of iodine is to participate in the production of thyroid hormones and especially T-3 (triiodothyronine) and T-4 (thyroxine). Both hormones are involved in regulating cell metabolism and organ development. The most severe complications of iodine deficiency are associated with the development of cretinism - a disease in which there is a sharp delay in physical and mental development. The other disease is hypothyroidism - when the thyroid gland does not produce enough hormones and thus disturbs the balance of biochemical processes in the body.
Daily iodine requirements vary according to a person's age and body condition. For adults and children over 18 years of age, it is recommended to take 150-200 micrograms of iodine per day. One capsule of the sea kelp of "Zdravnitza" contains exactly such a dose - 200 micrograms.
Sea Kelp contains a mineral called vanadium. This mineral is extremely useful for people with type 2 diabetes. Vanadium has an insulin-like effect while increasing its action. Vanadium is involved in the regulation of carbohydrate metabolism and cardiovascular activity, and also participates in the processes of bone and tooth formation, as well as in growth and metabolism. It plays an important role in increasing the activity of the immune system.
Sea kelp also contains fucoxanthin - one of the most common marine carotenoids, ahead of only astaxanthin. Futocoxanthin helps control body weight, which is especially important for people with diabetes. Futocoxanthin increases the production of omega-3 and DHA.
Sea Kelp is moderately rich in iron, which makes it a valuable product for preventing iron deficiency in the body, known as anemia.
