Iodine for children

Iodine, called the element of life, is necessary for the proper functioning of the entire body - not only the thyroid gland.  It plays a special role during pregnancy, because the appropriate level of iodine in the mother's body determines the proper development of the fetus - in particular the nervous system and brain. As a result, iodine deficiency has serious consequences, including a form of  mental retardation called cretinism or immaturity.  This is another name for congenital iodine deficiency syndrome, which is characterized by inhibition of the child's physical, mental and sexual development.

This element of life is necessary for the production of hormones by the thyroid gland. As a result, it has a key impact on metabolism. Additionally, iodine is a natural antioxidant with  antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties.  Importantly, it does not cause the production of antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria. As a result, iodine eliminates the effect of free radicals and has a bactericidal effect on Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, mycobacteria, viruses, fungi, yeasts, protozoa and spores. Therefore, it is  a key element for your child's proper immunity.  Iodine, through its participation in the production of hormones, is responsible for energy levels, well-being, ability to remember, concentration and general cognitive functions. It also helps the body kill cells that can lead to cancer.

The role of iodine in children's nutrition

Iodine is responsible for many processes in the child's body, including:

  • mental and motor development,
  • regulation of protein and enzyme synthesis,
  • proper functioning of muscles, heart and kidneys,
  • maintaining body temperature,
  • metabolism of carbohydrates, lipids, nucleic acids and vitamins,
  • proper functioning of the sex glands.

Iodine deficiency in children is still a current problem. Research shows that every third child provides too little of this element in their diet.  Iodine deficiency affects 52.45% of children in Europe (2007 research). Children have a demand for iodine that is four times higher than that of adults.  Even a slight iodine deficiency exposes the child to impaired cognitive functions and lower intelligence quotient. Iodized salt does not solve this problem because the iodine in the salt sublimates - it evaporates. The rate of this process depends on the temperature and humidity level of salt storage. Additionally, the iodine content in meals decreases with cooking. And salt should be avoided in a one-year-old's diet due to its negative impact on health.

Iodine deficiency disorders in children include:

  • worse intellectual and motor development,
  • slow growth,  late teething,
  • enlarged front and rear crown,  underdeveloped nasal bridge,  disproportionate body structure,
  • delayed puberty and physical development,
  • goiters (i.e. enlarged thyroid glands),

  • overweight,
  • skin problems, hair loss.
