The daily requirement of vitamins, minerals and trace elements varies greatly. On the one hand, it is particularly important to consider factors such as gender, size and age. On the other hand, life circumstances such as pregnancy should be taken into account.
Minerals are inorganic substances. They fulfil different functions in the human organism. They should be taken in daily through a healthy and balanced diet. The body needs them, for example, to maintain a normal metabolism.
Iodine is an essential trace element. It is an essential part of the thyroid hormones. Unfortunately, iodine deficiency is one of the most common deficiencies. In Germany about 30% of the entire population is affected by a deficiency of this trace element. The need for iodine in the body is determined by the production of thyroid hormones.
Iodine is a natural trace element, more precisely a mineral, which is essential for the human organism. It occurs in the body in very small quantities only and must be taken in with food, as it cannot be produced by the body itself. However, the thyroid gland can store small amounts of the trace element and fall back on it when needed.
