Iodine is essential for the production of thyroid hormones, which regulates hormone production, which plays an important role in metabolism, stimulating the immune system and moderating the central nervous system*.
Since our body doesn’t naturally produce it, we need to get iodine from our foods. However, most people do not get enough through their normal diet, which is why supplementing with liquid iodine may be necessary if your levels are low. Those at risk for iodine deficiency are those on a vegan or vegetarian diet, or those pregnant and nursing. Specifically, during pregnancy, adequate iodine levels are necessary when the body requires greater amounts to support the developing fetus. Symptoms of iodine deficiency include feeling fatigued and weak, dry and brittle hair, skin, and nails, and weight gain.
