Why do we need iodine? The importance of iodine for health and how to make up for its deficiency
Iodine is not just a chemical element; it is a key ingredient that keeps our bodies healthy. Let's dive into the world of iodine and find out why it is so important to us.
The importance of iodine
Here's a quick sock-it-to-you guide to daily iodine requirements:
Infants (first 12 months): 50 mcg
Young Children (2 to 6 years): 90 mcg
School-age Children (7 to 12 years): 120 mcg
Adults (12 years and older): 150 mcg
Pregnant and Nursing Women: 200 mcg
Iodine deficiency can lead to serious health problems such as goiter, mental retardation, and even spontaneous abortions in pregnant women. Symptoms may include fatigue, weight gain, or dry skin. If you experience these symptoms, it might be time to consult an endocrinologist.
Iodine: A Salt of the Earth
Iodine is found in various foods. Squids, mussels, crabs, sea kale - all this saturates the body with the necessary trace element. In addition, nutritionists advise including beets, carrots, potatoes, cabbage, lettuce, persimmons, apples, grapes, plums, buckwheat, millet, cheese, cottage cheese, and milk on the menu.
One of the easiest and most affordable ways to enrich your diet with iodine is to use iodized salt. Quality iodized salt tastes and looks the same as regular table salt and is suitable for all culinary uses.
