According to the American Thyroid Association. In the United States, iodine status has remained generally adequate in since the 1940s although studies have shown that urinary iodine levels dropped by about half between the early 1970s and the early 1990s, and most recently mild iodine deficiency has re-emerged in pregnant women. Iodine deficiency remains a major issue in other parts of the world, including parts of Europe, Africa and Asia.
Iodine forms thyroid hormones, which help eliminate heavy metals, lower your risk of diabetes, help control weight and lower blood pressure. Thyroid hormones regulate metabolism and energy production, affect core temperature, growth, reproduction, hair and skin health, and neuromuscular function. Iodine also plays a role in overall endocrine health.
Opti-Iodine provides whole food iodine support for thyroid hormone synthesis, helping maintain metabolism. This exact combination has been proven many times to be more beneficial than any other single form of iodine.
