These iodine tablets are a convenient way to add iodine to your diet. Each tablet provides 150µg of free elemental iodine in the form of potassium iodide.
Reassuringly, we use European Pharmacopia (EP) grade material to ensure a highly refined and controlled level of this important trace mineral; and with 150µg in each tablet this allows for a flexible dosing system whereby one to two tablets can be taken daily, depending on individual requirements.
The tiny amounts of iodine needed by the body play a vitally important role in our health and wellbeing. Interestingly, 75% of the body’s iodine is stored in the thyroid gland. Iodine contributes to:
- normal thyroid function and normal production of thyroid hormones.
- normal energy-yielding metabolism.
- maintenance of normal skin.
The richest sources of iodine are sea vegetables such as kelp (which can absorb significant amounts from seawater) and fish, although it can be difficult to obtain enough from fish, unless you it eat fish regularly. Dairy foods such as milk are also a rich source. In some countries, table salt is iodised but it is not routinely added to salt in the UK and the often-promoted sea salt form is not iodised. If you eat little or no fish or dairy then an iodine supplement is necessary, to plug any shortfalls in the diet. More recent research has highlighted pregnant women and those breastfeeding and teenage girls as groups that fall short of adequate intakes and should therefore look to take an iodine supplement.
