Selenium can help to fight free radicals as well as lower inflammation.† Lower inflammation may help important physiological systems. (1)
SUPPORTS THYROID HORMONE CONVERSION
The tiny thyroid gland holds the highest concentration of selenium in the body. Selenium is converted into selenoproteins which play a key role in thyroid function. These selenoproteins have an important job making metabolic fuel as they take the inactive T4 and convert it into the active T3. (2)
FRESH, PURE INGREDIENTS
Each gelatin based capsule contains one pure ingredient -- selenomethionine from organically sourced, mineral enriched selenium yeast -- 200 mcg per capsule.
Lugol's iodine was discovered in 1829 by the French physician Jean Lugol. The World Health Organization includes Lugol's Iodine on the List of Essential Medicines, as one of the most effective and safe medicines needed in a health system.1

Is there are test for iodine deficiency?
Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA)
There are several methods used by medical practitioners to measure iodine including blood test, iodine loading test and Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis.
Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis test can give medical practitioners a clear picture of what is going on in the cell. HTMA tests for 37 minerals and various toxic elements. Although it doesn't specifically test for iodine, there are simple ways to determine iodine levels via HTMA. For HTMA contact Stephanie Mace, owner and HTMA practitioner atNoshandFlourish.com.
For example, HTMA looks at sodium, selenium, potassium and lithium levels, all of which are reliable indicators of the levels of iodine in the tissues. The HTMA test can even indicate the presence of Hashimoto's Disorder. If there is not enough iodine in the cell, it can cause thyroid cells to become damaged. Hashimoto's disease can develop as the result of thyroid damage.
According to Mace, many of her patients have both the 24-hour loading test with bromine and an HTMA test done. The 24-hour Iodine Loading test with bromine can be used to determine whole body iodine sufficiency. Since it is possible to show a normal amount of iodine on the 24-hour loading test and still have symptoms of iodine deficiency, the HTMA test may help reveal iodine deficiency. For these reasons, HTMA is very helpful in correcting the root cause of the symptoms.
How much Lugol's Iodine should I take?
The range of opinions about how much iodine a person needs varies greatly among experts, practitioners and patients. The current Recommended Daily Amounts (RDAs) of iodine are based mainly on age and range from 110 mcg to 220-290 mcg per day. The above RDA chart is just a reference guide, however. Some patients following the Iodine Protocol might take as much as 50 mg a day or more. Iodine intake is different for everyone, depending on many factors. Always consult a medical practitioner who has experience with iodine therapy.
Do I still need Lugol's Iodine if I don't have a thyroid?
You may have heard that you don’t need iodine if you don’t have a thyroid, as you no longer make thyroid hormones on your own. However, this is simply not true. In fact, nothing is further from the truth. Every cell in the body needs iodine. In fact many people don't know there are two forms of iodine, potassium iodide and molecular iodine.The thyroid uses potassium iodide but the other parts of the body use iodine in the molecular form. Iodine is concentrated in all of your glands. The breasts, uterus, ovaries, prostate, pancreas, brain, and adrenals all use iodine. The skin and muscles also use large amounts of iodine.
Is iodine in salt?
The answer might surprise you. Like most Americans, you probably have a box of salt in your cupboard.
