One tablet per day provides 150 mcg of iodine. This is equivalent to 100% of the Daily Value for adults and children over the age of 1.
Q. I've got a question about Iodine supplements. Does a person use it for hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism; or maybe both? Our family is already buying products from you and are quite happy.
A. Iodine is useful in those who have hypothyroidism due to iodine deficiency. * Before taking an iodine supplement, it would be a good idea to have a medical checkup to determine if there is a good reason to take it. Most people in the USA are not deficient in iodine. Discuss with your doctor before buying this natural product to make sure you don't have a thyroid condition.

High amounts of iodine are found in iodized salt, sea salt, and salty foods. Sea vegetables, such as kelp, are a good source of iodine. Most fish and shellfish contain iodine in varying amounts. Iodine containing foods also include dairy products, cured meats, egg yolks and perhaps some dried fruits. The amount found in unprocessed foods depends on the soil concentration of iodine and the use of fertilizers. Some processed foods contain high amounts of iodized salt. If you consume a high amount of foods that contain iodine, be careful taking additional amounts in pills.
Buy iodine supplement on sale. Discuss with your health care provider before buying iodine supplements if you have a thyroid condition.
Potassium iodide is a form of iodine used in tablet form. Some radioactive materials are readily absorbed by the body and linger there. Radioactive iodine, for example, goes to the thyroid gland, and strontium to bone, and they emit radiation inside the body that over time can lead to cancer or leukemia. Radioactive iodine gets into the human body not necessarily by inhaling, but by eating contaminated food. It falls to the ground, cows eat it and make milk with radioactive iodine. Very little comes from inhalation. The epidemic of thyroid cancer around Chernobyl may have been prevented if the government had stopped people from drinking locally produced milk. Natural ways to treat or prevent radiation exposure damage can be found radiation treatment site.
