Iodine is an essential trace mineral, which means the human body can’t make it on its own and we need to get enough from our diet and/or supplementation. 

As a critical component of thyroid hormones T4 and T3, this all-important mineral is vital for not only hormone health, but liver, kidney, muscle, and brain function as well.* In fact, the thyroid gland is home to 70-80% of the body’s iodine in a healthy adult.

Iodine also helps regulate overall metabolism and is crucial for healthy fetal neurodevelopment during pregnancy.*

While iodine may not be as buzzy a mineral as, say, zinc or iron, its health benefits are vast and undeniably important.
