How Does Iodine Work?

Here is what Ancient Purity has to say. “Iodine is found in every organ of the body and is essential for humans.

Almost all of us are low in Iodine. These low levels are linked to many health problems that we experience. In 1880, a French physician named Jacques Lugol created a solution which contains 5% of elemental Iodine in a 10% solution of Potassium Iodide. It has been used steadily ever since.

Iodine And Clear Thinking

A function of Iodine in the human body relates to clear thinking. Iodine is linked with normal cognitive function.

This is the process in the brain responsible for memory, attention, learning, reasoning, and decision making. Not only does Iodine play an important role in the brain. The main purpose is for regulating your thyroid and maintaining a healthy metabolism. Keeping up your Iodine levels is critical in the prevention of diseases like cancer.

How To Get Enough Iodine In Your Diet

Unfortunately, most of us are not consuming anywhere near enough iodine-rich foods. As a result, we are deficient in iodine. This results in a myriad of health conditions. The best way to get your levels up is to increase the intake of certain foods.

This list from Dr. Axe is a great place to start. As you can see, Yogurt is right up there with Seaweed and Cod. You should be looking at organic, grass-fed and preferably raw.

How To Calculate Your Iodine Intake

Iodine contributes to the normal production of thyroid hormones and normal thyroid function. It is well established that the Iodine content of the thyroid gland is dependent upon the Iodine available in the food and water intake of the individual.

If the Iodine intake is low, the gland is deprived of the element it needs to do its work. If you are having problems with your thyroid, contact your healthcare professional. They can provide thyroid function tests that can identify the cause of your problem.
