Iodoral - 90 Count
It only takes one capsule of Iodoral to get a total daily intake of elemental iodine that is similar to the average intake of people living in mainland Japan. The diet in Japan is much richer in iodine than in many other countries‚ due to the larger quantities of sea vegetables that are consumed on a regular basis. This same population may also have better breast health when compared with the rest of the world.
What is Iodine?
Iodine is one of the essential elements that our body needs to function. Its main role is to support thyroid function‚ but other organs also need iodine in order to function optimally.
The minimum amount of iodine needed to support breast health in women is very small: as low as 0.1 milligrams per kilogram of body weight each day. In the past‚ one slice of bread contained about 0.15 milligrams of iodine‚ a full daily dose‚ but in recent years‚ bromine has largely replaced the iodine (while also reducing the effectiveness of the remaining iodine)‚ increasing the need for supplementation.
Recommended Daily Allowances
If you reference the RDA values of vitamins and minerals before making choices about nutrition or supplementation‚ you should know that these values were established many years ago – just after World War II. Iodine was among the last elements to be included in the RDA system and its value was based on the amount needed to prevent major deficiencies‚ as opposed to optimal health.
Each capsule of Iodoral by Optimox Corporation contains 12.5 milligrams of iodine and iodide‚ which is an optimal daily intake for most people‚ unless otherwise advised. One bottle provides 90 capsules.
