Nature's Life - Icelandic Kelp Thyroid Health - 500 Tablets

Nature's Life Icelandic Kelp Thyroid Health is a good source of the essential mineral iodine, which is important in providing nutritive support for healthy thyroid function.

Kelp
Kelp is a sea vegetable that is a concentrated source of minerals, including iodine, potassium, magnesium, calcium, and iron. Kelp as a source of iodine assists in making thyroid hormones, which are necessary for maintaining normal metabolism in all cells of the body.

Where is it found?
Kelp can be one of several brown-colored seaweed species called Laminaria.

Who is likely to be deficient?
People who avoid sea vegetables, as well as dairy, seafood, processed food, and the salt shaker, can become deficient in iodine. Iodine deficiency can cause low thyroid function, goiter, and cretinism. Although iodine deficiency is now uncommon in Western societies, the U.S. population has shown a trend of significantly decreasing iodine intake.

How much is usually taken?
Since the introduction of iodized salt, additional sources of iodine, such as kelp, are not necessary for most people. However, kelp can be consumed as a source of other minerals. A report from Great Britain indicated that the average kelp-based supplement contained 1,000 mcg of iodine (the adult RDA in the United States is 150 mcg per day). It has been suggested that intakes above 2,000 mcg per day should be regarded as excessive or potentially harmful.

Are there any side effects or interactions?
There have been several case reports of high intakes of kelp providing too much iodine and interfering with normal thyroid function. People with thyroid disease should check with a doctor before taking supplements that contain kelp.

Iodine
Iodine is a trace mineral needed to make thyroid hormones, which are necessary for maintaining normal metabolism in all cells of the body.

Where is it found?
Seafood, iodized salt, and sea vegetables—for example, kelp—are high in iodine. Processed food may contain added iodized salt. Iodine is frequently found in dairy products. Vegetables grown in iodine-rich soil also contain this mineral.

Who is likely to be deficient?
People who avoid dairy, seafood, processed food, and iodized salt can become deficient. Iodine deficiency can cause low thyroid function, goiter, and cretinism. Although iodine deficiencies are now uncommon in Western societies, the U.S. population has shown a trend of significantly decreasing iodine intake from 1988–1994. If this trend continues, iodine deficiency diseases may become more common.

How much is usually taken?
Since the introduction of iodized salt, iodine supplements are unnecessary and not recommended for most people. For strict vegetarians who avoid salt and sea vegetables, 150 mcg per day is commonly supplemented. This amount is adequate to prevent a deficiency and higher amounts are not necessary.

Are there any side effects or interactions?
High amounts (several milligrams per day) of iodine can interfere with normal thyroid function and should not be taken without consulting a doctor. Although potassium iodide supplementation (prescribed for some skin disorders) is usually well-tolerated, it has been known to produce adverse reactions such as rashes, itching or lesions on the skin, gastrointestinal symptoms, or hypothyroidism, especially in people with a prior history of thyroid problems. Because of such potential problems, the use of potassium iodide therapy should be supervised by a doctor. The average diet provides about four times the recommended amount of iodine. For susceptible people, that amount of iodine may be enough to cause health problems. A possible link to thyroid cancer has been observed in areas where an iodine-rich diet is consumed, and among populations that supplement with iodine. However, there is insufficient evidence to conclude that iodine supplementation is responsible for the increased incidence of thyroid cancer. Some people react to supplemental iodine, the first symptom of which is usually an acne-like rash.

When people with small, nontoxic goiter (living in areas not deficient in iodine) received iodine injections, they had a higher incidence of abnormal antibodies suggestive of the early stages of autoimmune thyroid disease.

Children with iodine deficiency may also have iron-deficiency anemia, and this anemia may interfere with the therapeutic action of iodine supplementation. Correcting iron deficiency in such children with iron supplements has been shown to improve the efficacy of oral iodine in treating goiter.
