Iodine supports the production of two important thyroid hormones, triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4). A healthy thyroid gland not only acts as your body’s thermostat, but it’s also one of the major maintainers of metabolism, including supporting fat burning for energy. Iodine is a health-promoting trace element essential for life. Its primary biological role lies in the production of the thyroid hormones triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4). T4 and T3 contain four and three atoms of iodine per molecule, respectively. The thyroid gland actively absorbs iodide from the blood to make and release these hormones into the blood.Ironically, health-conscious people are often the most likely to have low iodine levels. One reason is that athletes and people engaged in heavy physical effort deplete their healthy stores of this trace mineral through perspiration. Vegetarians and vegans also have a substantially greater likelihood of low levels of iodine than those who eat animal products. One study demonstrated iodine deficiency in 25% of vegetarians and an incredible 80% of vegans.
