Biotics Research Iodine - 2 oz
Biotics Research's Iodine Supplies 75 mcg of iodine (as potassium iodide) per drop. Iodine is an essential trace mineral, and is vital to healthy thyroid function. Vegetarians may be at increased risk of iodine deficiency.
Iodine is an essential trace mineral necessary for the production of thyroxine (T4). Although approximately 80% of the dietary intake of iodine is sequestered by the thyroid gland, other tissues concentrate iodine as well. They include salivary glands, the gastric mucosa, the choroid plexus, mammary glands, and the ovaries. Iodine is often found lacking in the typical western diet. Consequently, as a result of decreased iodine status, sufficient thyroxine cannot be produced by some, negatively impacting thyroid function.
