Description Usage Supplement Facts Iodoral is a dry tablet form of potassium iodide/iodine that delivers elemental iodine, an essential nutrient that your body needs to perform many functions. The blend of iodide and iodine has been clinically shown to be better tolerated and provide the maximum benefit*. Iodine is crucial for thyroid and adrenal health and also supports immune function, a healthy metabolism, estrogen balance in women, breast health, and prostate health*. Iodine is a trace mineral that your body needs but cannot make. Iodine must come from the diet, which can be a challenge since there is very little iodine in food sources. With the exception of iodized table salt, the most common source of iodine is found in seaweed. Because of this, supplements such as Iodoral are recommended to help ensure your body gets enough iodine on a daily basis*. Iodine is necessary for making thyroid hormones, triiodothyronine and thyroxine (known as T3 and T4)*. These thyroid hormones are essential for physical and mental development. If an iodine deficiency prevents these hormones from being synthesized, the pituitary gland releases thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), which causes your thyroid gland to swell, also known as a goiter. About 70-80% of your iodine supply is found in the thyroid gland in the neck. The rest is stored throughout your whole body, particularly in the ovaries, muscles, and blood, and even in your skin, teeth, and nails. Every cell uses iodine, which is why it’s important to ensure you’ve got enough.
