Iodine

(5)

Did you know that the only appreciable source of iodine in the diet is seaweed? Therefore, if you don’t eat seaweed on a regular basis the odds are that you are iodine deficient.

Now, you may take a multivitamin and mineral product, that contains some iodine, but there are 2 problems with that.

First, it is likely to be a very small amount of iodine, around 100-150 micrograms (a microgram is one thousandth of a milligram).

Cultures that eat seaweed as a daily vegetable, like the Japanese, average about 1000 to 2000 mcg on a daily basis.

The second problem is that multivitamins all use potassium iodide, which is a synthetic form of iodine that only serves the thyroid.

While the thyroid does need a regular supply of iodine, all the rest of the body needs iodine too. Potassium iodide cannot feed the cells in the rest of the body.

True iodine protects the breasts, lungs, heart, ovaries, prostate, bones, immune system, central nervous system and more! In fact, all cells in the body need to be nourished by iodine.

One of the most important functions of iodine (along with vitamins A & D) is to maintain and rebuild the mucosal membranes in the body. This includes the sinuses, lungs, stomach and intestines.

So it is a good idea to add an iodine supplement to your nutritional regimen, even if you do take a multivitamin (unless you eat seaweed at least a couple of times a week).

A liquid iodine supplement can be quite inexpensive, when it is mixed with potassium iodide, and will serve the needs of most people.

A more expensive product, more therapeutic in nature, and more effective for those in poor health, is pure iodine in an ionic form, which enters the cells directly without any processing by the body.
