Iodine is an essential trace mineral that is vital for thyroid function and the production of thyroid hormones that regulate important metabolic functions in the body. Seaweed, especially certain types like kelp, is a natural source of iodine and therefore may provide a variety of health benefits. Here are some of the effects of iodine from seaweed in the body:

Thyroid function : Iodine is an essential component of thyroid hormones such as thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). These hormones are crucial for regulating metabolism, energy balance, growth and development in the body. An adequate iodine intake, which can be ensured by consuming seaweed, is therefore important for healthy thyroid function.

Regulation of metabolism : Through its role in the production of thyroid hormones, iodine contributes to the regulation of metabolism. A balanced metabolism is important for energy production, weight control and many other metabolic processes in the body.

Growth and development : Iodine is especially important for the growth and development of children. A deficiency in iodine can lead to developmental delays, cognitive impairment, and other problems. Eating seaweed rich in iodine can help reduce these risks and support healthy development.

Protection against iodine deficiency diseases : A lack of iodine can lead to a variety of health problems, including goiter (an enlarged thyroid gland), cretinism (a form of mental retardation caused by maternal iodine deficiency during pregnancy), and hypothyroidism (an underactive thyroid gland). Regular consumption of seaweed rich in iodine can help prevent these deficiency diseases.

However, it is important to note that excessive consumption of iodine, especially in the form of supplements, can also have negative effects and can lead to hyperthyroidism. Therefore, it is important to respect the recommended daily allowance of iodine and consult a doctor if necessary, especially in the case of existing thyroid disorders or during pregnancy.
