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.
IODINE-ACTIVE plus® is an analogue of natural iodine compounds, which is used in complex therapy and prevention of thyroid diseases.

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 osmolytic, 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, which is a structural element of thyroid gland hormone, is often a hidden cause for development of various diseases.
