You May Not Be Getting Enough Iodine from Your Food

Iodine is a trace chemical element found in the body that is important but often overlooked. It is not produced naturally by the body and had to be obtained from an iodine rich diet (which is difficult today) or from iodine supplements.

Unfortunately there is very little iodine found in foods today (unless it has been added during processing). The use of chemicals and pesticides on farming soil strip the soil of iodine, ultimately depleting the amounts in the crops grown in them.

Other reasons people do not get as much iodine from their food these days is the fluoridation of drinking water and the addition of soy (oil) in many processed foods. Fluoride and soy interfere with the body's ability to absorb iodine.

Iodine plays an important role in the body, and supplementing is a simple way to make sure you are getting enough.
