Iodine aids in the functioning of the thyroid gland. 'Comparative epidemiologic studies in areas with low and high iodine intake and controlled studies of iodine supplementation have demonstrated that the major consequence of mild-to-moderate iodine deficiency for the health of the population is an extraordinarily high occurrence of hyperthyroidism in elderly subjects, especially women, with risk of cardiac arrhythmias, osteoporosis, and muscle wasting.' (Laurberg P., Nohr S.B., Pedersen K.M., Hreidarsson A.B., Andersen S., Bulow Pedersen I., Knudsen N., Perrild H., Jorgensen T., and Ovesen L. Thyroid disorders in mild iodine deficiency. Department of Endocrinology and Medicine, Aalborg Hospital, Denmark. Thyroid; 10(11): 951-63, Nov 2000).

Iron combines with protein and copper in manufacturing hemoglobin which transports oxygen in the blood from the lungs to the tissues. Iron deficiency results in anemia. A recent study indicates that the prevalence of iron deficiency anemia is higher in athletic populations and groups, especially in younger female athletes, than in healthy sedentary individuals. The young female athlete may want to consider use of low-dose iron supplements to prevent a decline in iron status during training. (Beard J., Tobin B. Iron status and exercise. Am J Clin Nutr. 72(2 Suppl): 594S-7S,Aug 2000).

Magnesium is a mineral needed by every cell of the body. Magnesium is needed for at least 300 fundamental enzymatic reactions in the body. It helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function, keeps heart rhythm steady, and bones strong. It is also involved in energy metabolism and protein synthesis. Evidence suggests that magnesium may play an important role in regulating blood pressure. (Paolisso, G. and Barbagallo, M. Hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and insulin resistance: the role of intracellular magnesium. Amer. J. Hyperten. 10: 346-355, 1997).
