Cognitive Performance Related to Nutrients
If you're concerned about children's poor performance in school, you don't have to look any further than their nutrition. For the last 20 years, and longer, researchers have suspected that lack of iodine causes poor school performance in youngsters. (This might also be true for adults, but that hasn't been tested yet. It does seem to be true for the elderly, however.)
Severe iodine deficiency during critical periods of fetal brain development are well documented. Researchers have suspected for some time that supplementing mildly iodine-deficient children may improve their cognition.
There have been studies done in Albania, China and now New Zealand which demonstrate this. In short: "Iodine supplementation improved perceptual reasoning in mildly iodine-deficient children and suggests that mild iodine deficiency could prevent children from attaining their full intellectual potential."
If you're wondering why your child, or a friend's child, isn't performing as well as you might hope, try some modest iodine supplementation. It's remarkable what a drop or two can achieve.
