Iodium function

December 26, 2008
Nervous system consists of the neuron cells and glia cells that formed on the stadium embriologist that continues in a short time after the baby is born. Cells have a neuron associated with the intellect.

Iodium function is to improve the intellect in relation to the growth of brain cells, the neuron cells. The number of neuron cells in the brain generally reach about 10 billion.

Iodium shortages during the pregnancy and early childhood period of life can decrease the number of neuron cells in the brain. Therefore, the time-period is a very critical and need to get oxygen-vitamin in sufficient amount, such as amino acids, fatty acid, vitamins, and minerals (especially iodium).


Neuron has four important parts of the body cells, dendrit, akson, and terminal akson. Akson is part of nerve cell function with a mediator to bring the message thread nerve. Neuron has the ability conductivity and exitability.

This cell has ability to give a reaction on the stimulus from outside sources, such as stimulus mechanical, electrical, chemical or physical, the cause and impulse conduct through the nerve. A nerve impulse is always conduct through dendrit to cell and from cell to akson.
Relationship one neuron with another neuron which does not form a braided-linked but separately by connecting a very narrow slit (1/5.000 mm) which is called synapsis. For the synapsis, nerve impulse requires a carrier substance which is called neurotransmitter.

There are about 30 neurotransmitter that has been known, including serotonin, norepineprin, epineprin, dopamin, and asetilkolin. Neurotransmitter is formed from raw materials in the form of amino acids (protein).

Lack of protein will be an impact on the reduction in the amount of neurotransmitter, so that the delivery of messages to be slow. In other words, people will be foolish. That is why protein is needed for a fetus in the womb and in the earlier period of life.
