Why choose Optimal Iodine by Seeking Health?Over the last thirty years, Americans have greatly reduced their iodine consumption and consume nearly 100 times less iodine than the Japanese. Currently, recommended dietary intake (RDI) levels of iodine are set at 150 micrograms (mcg) daily. However, increasing scientific evidence suggests that higher intakes in milligram (mg) amounts, such as those consumed in the Japanese diet, may be needed to achieve whole body sufficiency. Whereas typical dietary supplements supply iodine in microgram amounts, Optimal Iodine supplies 6.25 mg per capsule to provide a convenient way to supplement in milligram amounts.
What makes Optimal Iodine superior to other iodine supplements on the market?
To facilitate biological activity, Optimal Iodine provides several different forms of iodine, including molecular iodine and two forms of iodide. Each of these forms is well-absorbed and has shown benefit in different ways. Iodide is the most common supplemental form of iodine. Iodide is selectively accumulated by the thyroid gland and has been shown to have antioxidant properties that can help protect eyes and brain cells against oxidative damage. On the other hand, although molecular iodine is not as commonly found in dietary supplements, it is favorably accumulated by the mammary gland and has been reported to be superior to iodide in supporting breast health in women.
Optimal Iodine can be taken to help support normal thyroid function and the needs of numerous tissues throughout the body. Optimal Iodine is free of common allergens including milk/casein, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat/gluten, corn, yeast, and soybeans.
Children under 18 and individuals with a thyroid disorder such as a thyroid tumor, goiter or hypothyroidism should avoid iodine supplements.
