Product Description A great source of iodine for thyroid and breast health.Certain organs of the body prefer iodine while some others have a greater need and preference for iodide which is why both forms are included in this product. Iodine is needed to make thyroxine, thyroid hormone (T4), and selenium is needed to convert T4 into the active thyroid hormone, T3. Research suggests that supplementation of iodine can lead to selenium deficiency. Selenium was included in I + 2 Iodine to prevent this and to supply the needed cofactor for T3 synthesis.Supplementation of iodine without selenium is not recommended. Iodine deficiency is the greatest contributor to the cause of congenital hypothyroidism and goiter. Symptoms typical of iodine deficiency include cold extremities, fatigue, insomnia, dry eyes, frequent crying, and weight gain.
