To solve the problem of iodine deficiency specialists of Manufacturing and Trading Company Farmakom Ltd. have developed a special preparation – IODINE-ACTIVE PLUS®. This dietary supplement is created on the basis of long-term experience of treatment and prevention of thyroid gland diseases, including after Chernobyl NPP accident.
Primary biological role of iodine consists in supporting thyroid gland function and synthesizing its hormones – thyroxin and triiodothyronine. As of today iodine is the only known microelement, participating in synthesis of these hormones. Physiological role of thyroid gland hormones is crucial: they control intensity of basal metabolism, influence water-salt, lipid and carbohydrate metabolisms. Being a hormone, thyroxin is in constant connection with other endocrine glands, especially with pituitary gland and sex glands, regulates activity of the brain, nervous and cardiovascular systems; it stimulates growth and mental development of a child.
Recent researches by World Health Organization (WHO) in various countries of the world showed that intelligence level (IQ) is directly connected with iodine consumption. Endocrine disorders due to iodine deficiency are often latent, that is why iodine deficiency is called ‘hidden hunger’. The highest rate of this hunger is observed in children: growth, mental development retardation, sometimes leading to cretinism development; they do poorly at school, process of remembering and acquisition of knowledge and skills are impaired.
Deficiency of iodine, being structural element of thyroid gland hormone, is often a hidden reason for development of various diseases.
Signs of iodine deficiency:
Emotional: irritability, subdued spirits, drowsiness, sluggishness, forgetfulness, attacks of unexplainable melancholy, tearfulness.
Cardiac: atherosclerosis, persistent to treatment with drugs, arrhythmia, in case of which special antiarrhythmic agents don’t give perceptible and persistent effect, rise of diastolic (lower) pressure due to vascular walls edemas.

Gynecological: menstrual disorders (irregularity and sometimes absence of menses), sterility, mastopathy and fissures of the nipples.
Edematous: periorbital edema and puffiness of the whole body, in case of which systematic administration of diuretic deteriorates the state, forming addiction thereto.

How to Eliminate Iodine Deficiency?
Over 1.5 billion of people on the Earth suffer from iodine deficiency. Salt iodization remains the most widespread solution for this problem in many countries. It is believed that this has averted as many as 12 ml of cases of mental enfeeblement. Standards for iodine content in salts are aimed at meeting physiological demand of this microelement of the body. Iodized salt found its first vast application in the 1950s in Switzerland, where thyroid disorders were frequent at that time.
One of the main ways to make up for iodine deficiency is the consumption of iodine-containing products: milk, eggs, sea fish. Unfortunately, iodine content in most of these products has not been precisely determined; moreover, 65% of this microelement content is lost due to prolonged storage and thermal processing.
