Here is some additional information on the role that iodine plays in your body.
If you are deficient in iodine, then you should consult your doctor to see if you would benefit from using a liquid iodine supplement. Iodine is an element that belongs to the halogen group of the periodic table of elements. It is present naturally in some foods and is added to others. Iodine is essential to proper bodily function, albeit in relatively small quantities. It is a major component in two thyroidal hormones known as triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4). These hormones are important because they help regulate the synthesis of protein, as well as metabolic and other enzymatic processes. Thyroid hormone production is controlled by thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH). This hormone makes use of ingested iodine to create T3 and T4. When there is not enough iodine for TSH to use, it enlarges the thyroid gland to get iodine from the body’s circulation. This enlargement of the thyroid gland is called goiter.
Aside from its role in the endocrine system, iodine may also have a role to play in supporting the immune system. Iodine doesn’t generally occur in gaseous form, so it is often called iodide. Iodine deficiency is uncommon in the U.S., thanks to iodized table salt, but in less developed countries it is much more prevalent. Symptoms of iodine deficiency may include thyroid cancer, goiter, infertility, and even preventable forms of mental retardation. Those who wish to prevent iodine deficiency may take an iodine supplement. An iodine supplement can obviously be used to prevent the undesirable thyroidal troubles mentioned above, but there may be other health conditions that iodine can mitigate. As an experienced contract manufacturer of liquid iodine supplements, Matsun Nutrition can assist you with all your needs.
Pregnant women are advised to ingest 220 mcg/day; insufficient iodine intake during pregnancy may cause physical and cognitive developmental issues in children, preventable mental retardation being one of the notable conditions. The quantity of iodine in breast milk is dependent upon the mother’s iodine intake. Accordingly, health organizations like WHO recommend that women of childbearing age take a prenatal supplement that includes ample quantities of iodine (about 150 mcg/day). Supplemental iodine has also been taken to alleviate or prevent the symptoms of fibrocystic breast disease, breast cancer, eye disease, diabetes, and heart disease, but research on iodine’s ability to treat these conditions has been mixed, and you should consult your doctor before you start taking an iodine supplement.
