Iodine occurs in seawater. A small amount of iodine from seawater enters the atmosphere and, through rain, enters ground water and soil near the sea. Today, people in many parts of the world still do not have enough iodine and iodine deficiency continues to be a public health problem. About 90% of the people in the world are deficient of iodine.

Iodine deficiency occurs when your body lacks iodine – an important trace mineral. Cells need iodine to convert food into energy. Iodine supports the thyroid gland in your neck. Your thyroid uses iodine to make thyroid hormones, which control the rate of heartbeats, digestion and other functions. 

Iodine is truly one of the most important minerals for our well-being. 

Without enough iodine, your thyroid gland works harder. It can become swollen or enlarged (goiter). *Sometimes the gland can’t make enough thyroid hormones – a condition called hypothyroidism. The thyroid can also move in the opposite direction, releasing too many thyroid hormones, causing hyperthyroidism. Both of these are imbalances and caused by iodine deficiency.

Iodine deficiency is more common in women. It increases your risk of conditions such as:

  • Infertility
  • Thyroid autoimmune disease
  • Thyroid or other cancers especially breast and prostate
  • Pregnancy-related high blood pressure
  • Learning disabilities/difficulties in children of an iodine-deficient mother
  • Puffy skin
  • A hoarse voice
  • Impaired mental function
  • Dry and scaly skin
  • Sparse and coarse hair
  • Intolerance to cold
  • Weight gain
  • Heavy or irregular periods
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Depression

Iodine supports central nervous system development. Though rare, deficiency can stunt physical and mental growth.

Directions of use: Always 1st do a patch test – place one drop on your inner wrist area, and see what happens. If a bad reaction occurs e.g. blistering or burning sensation, discontinue use. If the drop gets absorbed quickly (within 2 to 3 hours) into the skin, you are deficient of iodine and can safely continue with recommended usage protocol.
