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.
Why is it better to take iodine in a liquid drop form?
When taken in liquid form, the body is able to absorb it better, faster, and at higher amounts than a capsule or pill. In addition, liquid iodine is easier to take than a standard pill that can be difficult to swallow and is better for individuals who have difficulty absorbing nutrients.
