How it works
Iodine is important for the normal functioning of the thyroid gland as it
is an essential nutrient required for the synthesis of thyroid hormones.
Thyroid hormones affect almost every cell in the body and regulate oxygen
use, metabolic rate and cellular metabolism. Thyroid hormones are important
for the normal development of the skeletal, muscular and nervous systems of
children. According to the Australian National Iodine Nutrition study over
50% of Australian children have an iodine deficiency.
The B group vitamins play an essential role in the metabolic processes of
all living cells by serving as coenzymes in the metabolism of carbohydrates,
proteins and fats to produce energy. Also, the normal function and
maintenance of the nervous system relies on the presence of the B group
vitamins for the production of hormones and neurotransmitters.
Adequate levels of vitamin D throughout life are important for building and
maintaining healthy bone mass, and hence in maintaining bone density.
Vitamin C is involved in hundreds of biological processes. It is critical to
immune function as it is involved in the production of white blood cells and
Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body, and approximately 99%
of the body?? calcium exists in the bones. The major function of calcium is
building and maintaining bones and teeth.
Magnesium is essential for many cellular functions, particularly those
involved in energy production, and for the normal functioning of muscle and
Iron is a component of haemoglobin, which is an essential component of red
blood cells. Haemoglobin transports oxygen in the body. Having optimal
haemoglobin levels helps the cells of the body receive sufficient oxygen.
Without adequate dietary iron levels the delivery of oxygen to the cells
decreases and energy production may suffer.
