Iodine

Iodine is categorized as a non-metallic trace mineral. It is needed by the human body in only trace amounts, providing for those vital physiological functions responsible for growth and survival. Iodine occurs naturally in a variety of chemical forms. These forms of iodine are derived from the origin, or source, where a particular food was harvested. For example, the ocean provides for the greatest abundance of iodine, followed by the earth's top surface layer (soil). The many fruits and vegetables harvested from such iodine rich soils are also abundant in this important mineral.

Iodine is essential in the human diet. It is labeled within the subcategory of micronutrients and is listed as a chemical element (along with oxygen, hydrogen, and iron). Commercially, iodine is typically available in three different forms. These forms are: calcium iodide, potassium iodide, and sodium iodide. Nutritional supplements offer the form of potassium iodide, usually in conjunction with a number of other products. It is estimated that the iodine contained within a dietary supplement accounts for approximately 77% of the total weight of the included potassium iodide.

This trace mineral is a main component to both our thyroid and parathyroid glands. Iodine is responsible for the regulation of the hormones triodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4) produced by these glands. T4 is the most abundant circulating form of these hormones, and conversion can occur with the assistance of T3 by the enzymes deiodinases. These hormones regulate physiological functions such as gene expression (via DNA and RNA), growth, development, metabolism, and reproductive functioning.
