Halides like bromine and fluoride have a similar structure to iodine and may be absorbed in places where iodine is meant to be taken up. We need to keep iodine flowing throughout the body to make sure it is absorbed and that the halides are not absorbed. This method of increasing saturation to prevent uptake of harmful molecules is the same idea behind taking emergency doses of iodine.

Iodine gets distributed throughout the body and so it could take some time before all iodine levels are restored. The thyroid’s iodine needs seems to be satisfied first. Regular doses of iodine is a more effective way to stay protected especially because you will enjoy the numerous benefits of total body iodine supplementation.

Iodine and Flu Variants

Iodine and Flu Variants

Iodine circulating in the blood is captured by numerous tissue sites and ends up in mucus secretions. These tissues include the salivary glands, nasal secretions, lungs and stomach. Tissues and mucus products containing iodine defend against invasion by bacteria and viruses. Respiratory and oral transmission are key pathways for viral infections. With enough supplementation, iodine can be ever-present and ready to defend in both the upper- and lower-respiratory systems as well as in the stomach.

Iodine and Detox

In the previous post we explained why 12.5 mg of elemental iodine is still a good daily target for maintaining iodine levels and recommended a cautious approach when starting iodine supplementation.   There are 3 phases to consider when starting on iodine: detox,...
Iodine Dosages

Iodine Dosages

High potency doses of iodine for regular use. Experiencing side effects could be a good sign as we can expect increased levels of iodine in the body to trigger detox processes. However, in our opinion, this is not a battle we should be charging into. Iodine affects many different tissues, systems and functions in the body and so it is difficult to predict how this will play out for a given individual..
