Iodine's primary role is to support a healthy thyroid gland by activating the production of thyroxine, which is needed throughout the body for energy production. About 50 to 60 percent of the body's Iodine is stored in the thyroid gland. The rest is distributed throughout the body, especially in ovaries, breast and prostate tissue, muscles, and blood. Women may require higher Iodine amounts during puberty and pregnancy.
Iodine plays an important role in many of the body's functions. It helps to support:
- Thyroid function, which influences the adrenal glands
- Healthy reproductive function
- Nerve and muscle function
- Cellular oxygen use
- Healthy hair, skin, and bones
- The breakdown of fats and proteins
Iodine can become depleted when one is exposed to heavy metals such as mercury, lead, cadmium, aluminum and bromide.
Cold hands and feet, fatigue, sleeping all the time, brittle hair, dry skin, increased blood fats, inability to concentrate, heavy periods, occasional bowel irregularity, hoarseness, and delayed reflexes.

Obtaining the needed minerals via the food we eat is a chronic problem today. This is primarily due to our deficient soils and over processing and over cooking of our foods. Drinking ultra-purified water can also strip our body of these essential minerals. It is important to be aware of the fact that reverse osmosis and distilled water will actually act in reverse of what nature intended our water to do. Instead of being a mineral delivery system, the minerals are taken out of the water and this puts additional stress on the body tissue to compensate for the lack of minerals in the water. The minerals must then be taken from our healthy reserves in bone and muscle, thus leaving our system deficient and vulnerable. Replacement is essential!

I've been on these iodine drops for many years. They work. They improve your urine iodine results. Make sure you work with a doctor, you don't want to overdo iodine.
I'm perimenopausal and over several past years, PMS breast discomfort has increased. But, then I read that other tissues in the body including the breast (not just the thyroid) need iodine. Due to my own thyroid issues, I wanted to be really careful and increase slowly. I also want to take half my dose in the AM and half at night. These drops make it easy to work up slowly in my dosage. And, my breast pain has been almost none since I started these (and that didn't happen when I had previously used a much higher dose every other day).
Was surprised it had no color and it is not unpleasant to take. I've just started taking it so have not had time to receive its benefits. I am hoping to boost my energy level.
The drop format is super useful! I can choose the exact amount I offer my plant-based toddler!
Excellent supplement, easy to take, and the timing is good. I will take more.
Top quality! Feel better since I started taking it. :)
The whole family takes this in the morning on an empty stomach. I think most people have an iodine deficiency. Therefore, it is a must-have. Especially to improve the functioning of the thyroid gland. Girls, moms, I advise
Important for immunity and thyroid gland, lasts a very long time. I store in the refrigerator.
Iodine gives very good results for those with dry skin, for the development of children, for the brain, and for the production of thyroid hormones!!! Iodine is powerful
