Iodine Essential for Life!

iodineIodine is a trace mineral that your body requires to function but cannot make.  Iodine must come from the diet. With the exception of iodized table salt, the most common source of iodine is found in food that comes from the sea.

Iodine affects nerve and muscle function, heart function, metabolism, tissue growth and repair, and cell respiration. In fact…every cell in the body contains and utilizes iodine.

Iodine is also essential for Hormone health.

Most of us are aware that Iodine is important to the thyroid as it is necessary for making thyroid hormones, triiodothyronine and thyroxine -T3 and T4. 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.

Iodine and Breast TIssue

Surprisingly, breast tissue appears to be a substantial reservoir for iodine. It is thought that when iodine is ingested, the thyroid uses 6 mg and the rest of the body uses 8 mg for each 14 mg ingested. The breasts use about 5 mg of the non-thyroid amount. Countries with the highest iodine consumption have the lowest breast cancer incidence. Researchers have estimated that in both women and female rats, the amount of iodine required for protection against breast cancer and fibrocystic breast disease is at least 20 to 40 times the amount required for control of goiter.  There are researchers currently looking at the connection between breast cancer and low Iodine.

What does that mean for you and I?

We need to be asking ourselves...  how much Iodine do I have in my body?  Do I have enough to protect my thyroid, my breasts, my brain and my heart?   This is where Iodine Testing comes in.  An Iodine test is available to determine Iodine insufficiency.  www.IodineTesting.com

An easy to do, oral loading test can detect iodine deficiencies.  Inorganic iodine is an ideal element for this test because it is absorbed by the gastrointestinal tract and is highly bioavailable with most of the ingested inorganic iodine/iodide excreted in the urine.

If the test shows a person to have insufficient levels then it is very easy  to begin to take a low dose supplemental iodine tablet or in drops.



Daily iodine intake levels set by the WHO were recommended with the goal of preventing simple goiter and not for nourishing the whole body with the amount of iodine it needs. It is suggested that the average person in Japan takes in approx 12.5 mg of Iodine daily in their diet. This then is the amount often recommended if your Iodine Test shows that you are deficient.

As iodine levels in North America have declined, autoimmune thyroid disorders and breast, prostate, thyroid, endometrial and ovarian cancers increased.

We believe that information is the key to our power!  Iodine insufficiency affects the health of many North Americans but they are unaware of why.  An Iodine Test just may be another key unlocking one more door in our journey toward hormone health!
