Iodine Deficiency & Iodine Supplements

By Brenda Ingram - Message her  Flag 
Updated Aug. 31, 2010, about 12 years ago

There are many signs of iodine depletion and several physical disorders that can be linked to iodine deficiency. Many of these instances can potentially be resolved with iodine supplements.

Signs of Iodine Deficiency

Iodine plays an extremely important role in overall physical health and is an element needed to maintain good health. Iodine is specifically vital for proper thyroid function. Adequate iodine intake can directly influence the thyroid’s ability to burn calories and maintain weight. Iodine has been recognized for its ability to help reduce the incidence of breast cancer and fibrocystic disease of the breast.

It is of special interest to note that in countries where Iodine consumption is high, such as Japan, the incidence of fibrocystic breast disease and breast cancer in women is extremely low. The Japanese diet includes both fish and seaweed, which are rich sources of Iodine. Japanese women consume approximately 13.8 mg of elemental iodine on average.

The iodine/iodide solution called Lugol solution was used extensively, effectively and safely in medical practice, for both low activity and above normal activity of the thyroid gland during the early 1900s. Lugol solution was effective in treating many symptoms associated with poor thyroid function for over 150 years. It has been shown to be safe and successful as a natural supplement. Research has also solidly linked the need for iodine/iodide intake to achieve optimal health throughout the body. Iodoral is modeled after Lugol and was developed to provide iodine supplementation in a safe, convenient, and mess-free way.

Iodine Supplement by Optimox Iodoral 12.5

Iodoral provides 5 mg iodine and 7.5 mg iodide as the potassium salt. Just one tablet per day will provide an adequate and health-promoting amount of iodine/iodide to the body’s systems. The iodine/iodide preparation in Iodoral was absorbed into a colloidal silica tablet to help prevent gastric irritation; and the tablets were coated with a thin film of pharmaceutical glaze to help eliminate the unpleasant taste of iodine. The suggested amount of Iodoral is 1-4 tablets daily. You should consult with your physician to determine the best dosage of Iodoral for you.

Side Effects

Iodoral enhances the response of your body to thyroid hormones. You will need to cut down the amount of thyroid hormones you are taking if you experience palpitation, anxiety, increased sweating and intolerance to heat. Iodoral decreases the body’s need for thyroid hormones. It is common to feel warmer in cold environments when taking Iodoral. It is crucial that you work closely with your physician when taking Iodoral. He/she may test you for iodine deficiency and will need to monitor your blood and thyroid levels continuously while on an Iodoral program.
