Iodine is crucial for thyroid and adrenal health. It helps to boost your immunity, create a healthy metabolism, balance estrogen in women, support prostate health in men.
Iodine is necessary for the production of the thyroid hormone. It is believed that many of us have an iodine deficiency which can lead to a wide range of problems in the glandular system. Iodine was first discovered in 1811 by the French chemist, Bernard Courtois. The use of iodine to reduce a goiter was the first time a single element was used as a treatment. Iodine quickly became known as the “Universal Medicine.” This discovery is considered the birth of Western medicine.
Iodoral is recommended to help ensure your body gets enough iodine on a daily basis. Iodine is a trace mineral that your body needs but cannot make. Iodine must come from your diet but this is hard because there is very little iodine in our food sources. Besides iodized table salt, the most common source of iodine is found in seaweed. (mmmm sushi.)
Iodine is necessary for making thyroid hormones, triiodothyronine and thyroxine, also known as T3 and T4. T3 and T4 are essential thyroid hormones for physical and mental development. When someone is deficient in iodine, these thyroid hormones are not synthesized properly. The pituitary gland then begins to release thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), which causes your thyroid gland to swell into a goiter.
A goiter is the most recognized symptom of iodine deficiency but there are many subtle symptoms of low iodine levels. These include low energy, fatigue, weight gain, occasional headaches, uneven blood pressure, poor memory, lack of concentration, skin blemishes, acne and general mood imbalances.
About 70-80% of your iodine supply is found in the thyroid gland in the neck. The rest is stored throughout your whole body, particularly in the ovaries, muscles, and blood, and even in your skin, teeth, and nails. Every cell uses iodine, which is why it’s important to ensure you’ve got enough.
