Our bodies need Iodine, a non-metallic trace element, to synthesize thyroid hormones.
To meet our demand for thyroid hormones, the thyroid gland traps iodine from the blood and incorporates it into thyroid hormones that are stored and released into circulation when needed.
Iodine deficiency is a major health problem in much of the world. It is the leading cause of preventable mental retardation among children.
This form of deficiency can give rise to hypothyroidism, the symptoms of which include
- Extreme fatigue
- Mental slowing
- Weight gain
- Low basal body temperatures
The addition of iodine to table salt has largely eliminated this problem in the wealthier nations, although there are signs that cases may be on the rise again.
Thyroid enlargement, or goiter, is one of the earliest and most visible signs of iodine deficiency.
Sufficient iodine intake will generally reduce the size of goiters, but this depends on an individual's stage of development.
Iodine deficiency has adverse effects in all stages of development but is most damaging to the developing brain.
In addition to helping regulate growth and development, thyroid hormones play a role in healthy central nervous systems, especially before and shortly after birth, as well as in healthy reproductive systems.
Iodine and Radiation
Radioactive iodine can be released into the environment as a result of nuclear reactor accidents.
Thyroid accumulation of radioactive iodine increases the risk of developing thyroid cancer, especially in children.
Such an accumulation of iodine in someone who is already iodine deficient may increase their risk of developing radiation-induced thyroid cancer.
Potassium iodide in doses of around 50 mg to 130 mg for adults within 48 hours before, or eight hours after, radiation exposure from a nuclear reactor accident may reduce the level of radioactive iodine absorbed by your thyroid.
Some separation is normal with Liposomal Liquid Iodine. Shake gently before use.
