High Potency Iodine/Potassium Iodide Supplement.
Iodine is an essential element. Although its main function is in the production of thyroid hormones by the thyroid gland, other organs in the body have a need for iodine in order to function normally. The diet in Japan is much richer in iodine than in many other countries‚ due to the larger quantities of sea vegetables that are consumed on a regular basis. This same population may also have better breast health when compared with the rest of the world.
What is Iodine?
Although iodine is an essential element‚ much like calcium or magnesium‚ you don’t hear as much about it. That’s because the body needs so little iodine to carry out its normal function. However‚ the body does need that trace amount of iodine or deficiency symptoms ensue. Iodine’s main function is tied to the production of thyroid hormones by the thyroid gland‚ but other bodily organs also need iodine to function properly.
Iodine and Thyroid Function
In the absence of adequate dietary iodine‚ individuals are likely to develop a goiter because their thyroid is not functioning properly. Not every person with a goiter is suffering from an iodine deficiency‚ but without the right intake of iodine‚ you can expect to eventually develop a goiter. The original study from 80 years ago indicated that adolescent girls need 9 milligrams of iodide daily to avoid developing a goiter.
As a dietary supplement, take one tablet per day or as directed by a physician.
