Is iodine deficiency common?
Iodine deficiency is occurring at an epidemic rate in the U.S. and affects approximately one-third of the world’s population. Unfortunately, iodine’s benefits are often overlooked outside of its role in thyroid health.
Iodine is found in each of the trillions of cells in the body. Without adequate iodine levels, life itself is not possible. This essential nutrient contains powerful anti-parasitic, antibacterial, antiviral and anticancer properties and is vital for the treatment of autoimmune diseases and to ensure proper immune system function.
How much iodine do I need?
The first step is to determine your current iodine levels through a blood, serum or urine test. Once your iodine levels are determined, your healthcare practitioner can prescribe the appropriate level of iodine supplementation for your individual needs.
Most adults benefit from taking 25 to 50 mg of iodine per day, and children require less. However, individuals who are battling certain illnesses typically require higher levels of iodine to address their needs.
As with prescription medications, it’s important to discuss the pros, cons, drug interactions and any potential side effects of nutritional supplements with your EvexiPEL Certified Provider.
