GLOSSARY
IODINE

Iodine

 

How does it work?

Iodine is an essential trace mineral needed for proper functioning of the thyroid gland and synthesis of thyroid hormones.1 These hormones (T3 and T4) influence growth, maturation, thermogenesis, oxidation, myelination of the central nervous system and the metabolism of all tissues.2 80% of iodine is found in the thyroid, hence its importance, and the remaining 20% in salivary, gastric and mammary glands (pregnancy/lactation only).3 Severe deficiency is serious and can result in goitre, myxoedema and fetal brain developmental issues during pregnancy.Mild deficiency can result in hypothyroidism which has its own array of signs and symptoms that must be treated by a health practitioner.5

What results can be expected?

Iodine is used to treat and prevent deficiency where there is high growth demand such as pregnancy, lactation, children, adolescence or those lacking dietary iodine rich sources.6
