In addition to its well-known role in thyroid health, iodine has antioxidant activity, and it plays a critical role in intellectual development, endocrine function, and breast and reproductive system health. Approximately 15-20 mg of iodine is concentrated in the thyroid and thyroid hormones, while 70% of the body’s iodine is distributed in other tissues, including the mammary glands, ovaries, eyes, gastric mucosa, cervix, and salivary glands.
Iodine-HP is an essential trace element, recognized for its traditional role in thyroid hormone synthesis. Iodine is directly incorporated into thyroxine (T4) and the biologically active form of the thyroid hormone triiodothyronine (T3). Thyroid hormones regulate metabolism and energy production throughout the body and, in turn, affect core body temperature, growth, reproduction, protein synthesis (including the formation of hair and skin), and neuromuscular function

Sources of Iodine
Iodine must be obtained from the diet or in supplement form. Iodine intake through seaweed consumption, such as in Japanese populations, is naturally higher than in other populations. Current estimates put Japanese daily intake of iodine from seaweed at 1-3 mg/d; but previous estimates have been much higher, such as 5.3-13.8 mg/d, and even as high as 50-80 mg/d. In other regions, the iodine content of food is dependent upon the presence and availability of iodine in the soil in which food is grown. In many countries, table salt and cattle feed have been fortified with iodine to help consumers meet minimum intake requirements. For instance, universal salt iodization was instituted to reduce the prevalence of goiter. It is interesting to note that over the last 25 years, the consumption of (iodized) table salt by US citizens has decreased by 65% as a result of people trying to reduce their sodium intake for health reasons.*
Iodine - HP
Iodine-HP tablets are formulated in a base of microcrystalline cellulose and are coated with a pharmaceutical glaze to prevent gastric irritation and eliminate the unpleasant taste of iodine, making them the best solution for an individual’s iodine supplementation.
