Iodine and iodized salt, dangers and benefits

  1. Iodine is an important element. It regulates water management, among other things. Iodine is best known for being essential for the thyroid gland to produce thyroxine. It also stimulates the production of proteins that are produced by the enzyme sodium-potassium pump. With the help of this enzyme, the mineral content inside and outside a cell is balanced. The sodium-potassium pump allows minerals to pass in and out of the cell through the cell membrane.

Synthetic iodine

  1. Synthetic iodine is put in table salt while from table salt first iodine and over 80 other minerals

Which food products contain a lot of iodine?

  1. Iodine is in sea salt, but it is just not enough for the daily requirement. It is therefore important if you do not eat iodized salt or iodized bread, make sure you eat iodinated foods. Iodine is mainly found in unrefined sea salt such as Celtic sea salt and Himalayan salt, yogurt, organic milk, eggs, mozzarella cheese, strawberries, kelp, seaweed

Iodine with radioactivity

  1. Iodine can be an important aid in an accident where radioactivity is released. Iodine is prescribed in large amounts in people who are radioactively contaminated. This works as follows: a large amount of potassium iodide is absorbed by the thyroid gland, so that there is no more room for radioactive iodine. This protects the body against radiation because the particles contaminated by radiation are not absorbed but are quickly removed from the body.
