Iodine, also called iodide, is an essential mineral, with primary importance for the thyroid gland and its ability to make thyroid hormones. These hormones are responsible for multiple functions in the body, including growth and development and hormone regulation. Because the human body does not produce iodine naturally, it needs to be supplied in the diet.
Although its main function is in the production of thyroid hormones T3 and T4, other organs in the body also need for iodine in order to function normally. Iodine is naturally found in the earth’s soil and ocean waters, and in many salt water and plant-based foods. It is most-widely available in iodized table salt.
People with access to iodized salt, seafood and/or seaweed, dairy products and grains, and plant foods like leafy greens and prunes are able to get enough iodine from their diet.
Some of the signs of iodine deficiency include swelling in the neck, pregnancy-related issues, weight gain, weakness and fatigue, brain fog, learning and memory difficulties, and hair loss.
