Fact about The Wachters Blend of Sea Vegetation:

Vegans at Risk for Low Iodine

Vegans May be at Risk for Low Iodine

Vitamin Retailer News Study Suggest Vegans May be at Risk for Low Iodine
Some vegans may not be getting enough iodine in their diets, a new study
suggests, and researchers expressed this finding is particularly relevant
for women who are pregnant, as that?s a time when a mother?s iodine levels
are strained by her growing baby.

Iodine is used by the thyroid gland to help regulate metabolism and
development, especially in babies and young children. Iodine deficiency
during fetal and early-childhood development is a leading cause of brain
impairments in much of the world.

Dr. Angela Leung of Boston Medical Center, lead author of the new study,
said that little research has been done on whether vegetarians and vegans
may be more likely to have iodine deficiencies because of their dietary

Leung?s colleagues recruited 140 vegetarians and vegans (mostly women) and
tested their urine for concentrations of iodine and calculated an average
iodine level of 147mcg in vegetarians and 79mcg in vegans.

According to the World Health Organization, the general recommended range
of iodine concentrations per liter of urine is between 100 and 199mcg, and
between 150 and 249mcg per liter in pregnant women.

Researchers also measured the participants? levels of thyroid hormones as
a gauge of how well their thyroids were functioning, in addition to levels
of a couple of chemicals? perchlorate and thiocyanate, known to interfere
with iodine in the thyroid.

There was also no relationship between thyroid hormone levels and urine
concentrations of perchlorate, a contaminant in food and water, or of
thiocyanate, a chemical found in cabbage-like vegetables and in cigarette
smoke. Leung said that?s probably because the study was very small, which
makes it harder for those associations to come out. One limitation of the
study is that the urine test for iodine is only a window into recent
iodine consumption, and can?t get at how long-term iodine levels may be
affecting the thyroid.

Leung said the purpose of this study was mainly to make the public aware
of the issue of iodine deficiency, especially in women who forego some
high-iodine foods, and to open the door for more research into this topic.

Direct Effect of Vitamin D on Muscle Regeneration

A recent study by OrgaNext Research (Arnhem, The Netherlands) found that
activated vitamin D stimulates expression of the androgen receptor in
skeletal muscle cells.

The researchers also found that nandrolone, the active metabolite of the
anabolic steroid nandrolon decanoate, stimulates expression of the vitamin
D receptor in skeletal muscle cells and that the combination of nandrolone
and hydroxylated vitamin D (NDD) has a synergistic effect on the in-vitro
proliferation of human skeletal muscle cells. Dutch scientist Lenus
Kloosterboer, PhD, presented these findings on June 4 at ENDO 2011, the
Annual Meeting of the Endocrine Society held in Boston, MA.

?We found that both compounds stimulate expression of their own and each
other receptors in human skeletal muscle,? said Kloosterboer. ?This has
never been published before and could help unravel the mechanism of action
of muscle regeneration".

What makes this study unique is that both young and aged human skeletal
muscle cells were used. However, the receptor expression was greater in
the aged muscle cells. It is likely that the number of both the androgen
receptor and the vitamin D receptor on human skeletal muscle lower as we
age, which may be why muscle regeneration slows down as people grow older.
It is really promising that we were able to demonstrate that the
proliferation of satellite cells, also known as new skeletal muscle cells,
can be triggered by the active metabolites of NDD.

?Muscle mass plays a key role in recovery from illness or trauma,?
continued Kloosterboer. ?Hospitalized elderly patients can lose up to 10
percent of lean leg muscle mass in only three days and there remains a
substantial unmet medical need to support the recovery of these patients.
The results of this study may help us understand the underlying mechanisms
of human muscle regeneration and bring us closer to offering a clinical
