Iodine is an essential trace element and is an integral part of the thyroid hormone, thyroxine, required for normal growth and metabolism. An adequate intake of iodine is particularly important for pregnant and breastfeeding women when infants are entirely dependent on their mother's intake of iodine for normal growth and brain development. Foods containing iodine include seawater fish, shellfish, seaweeds and iodised salt.
A water-soluble B group vitamin, folate is involved in the synthesis of DNA and RNA and the activation of vitamin B12 into its active form. Folic acid is found in fresh green leafy vegetables, broccoli, mushrooms, legumes, nuts and fortified cereals.
