What is iodine?
Iodine is an essential trace mineral; this means that although our bodies only need small amounts of it, they cannot produce iodine themselves, and it must be obtained through diet. A healthy amount of iodine, about 150mcg daily for an adult, has been implicated in a range of benefits, from improved thyroid and metabolic function, to assisted absorption of other important minerals such as calcium and selenium.
Why do I need iodine in my diet?
While iodine is rich in some foods, particularly sea plants such as kelp and the fish and shellfish that feed on them, people who do not regularly eat seafood, either due to allergy, taste, or expense, could be at risk of a deficiency. The most well-known effect of iodine deficiency is the development of a goiter, or swollen thyroid gland, as well as weight gain, but it can also result in severe detriments to normal growth and development in children. In fact, a World Health Organization study in 2007 found that nearly 2 billion individuals suffered from an iodine deficiency, a third of whom were of school age, making iodine deficiency the leading cause of preventable intellectual disability.
