Iodine is one of the most important minerals for the human body and most are deficient. Foods like kelp contain iodine. I mix 1 teaspoon of kelp powder with a little bit of room temperature water and drink that. I don’t trust that morton’s iodized salt and never use it. I’ve heard that it is heated to extremely high temperatures and all the benefits are destroyed. A problem with taking iodine in food form is that it may not absorb. Majority of people have poor digestion due to improper food combining, artificial food consumption, alcohol, history of antibiotic use, overdosing on sugar and other high glycemic foods, and other abuses that people do to their body. With a disturbed digestive system, minerals and vitamins do not absorb properly. A good way to supplement is transdermally. Massage lugol’s iodine into your skin, especially where it is thinner like the inner arms or thigh. Iodine is important for women’s breast health. If there are cysts or fibroids, massage lugol’s iodine into the spot where breast tissue is imbalanced.
