Iodine contributes to the normal functioning of the thyroid gland, is part of its hormones (thyroxine, triiodothyronine). Prevents the development of endemic goiter, cretinism.

Folic acid deficiency causes impaired DNA synthesis in a cell preparing for chromosome replication and division. The mechanism of action is due to the participation of folic acid in the form of tetrahydroflot in the synthesis of nucleic acids and in cell division, as well as participation as a coenzyme in the synthesis of purines and pyrimidines, which makes it a decisive factor in the formation of the central nervous system, which develops in humans on days 15-28 after fertilization. Folic acid is essential for the normal maturation of megaloblasts and the formation of normoblasts. Its deficiency leads to the filling of homocysteine ​​in the blood plasma, which is a marker of atherosclerotic changes.
