Optimal Iodine by Seeking Health provides high-potency, milligram amounts of iodine, a trace mineral that is essential for the maintenance of normal thyroid function. Over the last thirty years, Americans have greatly reduced their iodine consumption and now consume nearly 100 times less iodine than the Japanese. For most adults the recommended dietary intake (RDI) levels of this important trace mineral is 150 micrograms (mcg) daily. Dietary sources of iodine include seaweed, fish, shellfish, eggs, and iodized salt. Vegans, those with allergies, and individuals who consume a typical American diet may have trouble getting iodine from foods.*
To facilitate biological activity, Optimal Iodine provides two different forms of iodine: molecular iodine and potassium iodide. Each of these forms is well-absorbed and may provide benefit in different ways. Iodide is the most common supplemental form of iodine. Iodide is selectively accumulated by the thyroid gland and may also exhibit antioxidant properties supporting healthy eyes and brain cells.* On the other hand, although molecular iodine is not as commonly found in dietary supplements, it is favorably accumulated by the mammary gland and be superior to iodide in supporting breast health in women.*
