Alterra Io-Med Iodine 90 Capsules
Iodine is necessary for proper function of the thyroid gland in the body, and may help prevent conditions such as iodine deficiency and hypothyroidism. Thyroid deficiency is becoming more common in our health conscious society with the decreased consumption of table salt, previously the main source of iodine for individuals. Alterra's combined potassium iodide and iodine supplement provides additional iodine to assist in normal bodily functions and encourage the thyroid gland to produce adequate levels of the thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3) hormones. A deficiency in these thyroid hormones may result in lower metabolic rate, weight gain, fatigue, dry skin, sensitivity to cold, as well as contribute to hot flashes associated with menopause.
Dosage: Children and adults may take one capsule per day, or as instructed by a healthcare professional.
Each capsule contains:
8 mg Potassium Iodide (32 mcg of Iodine)
4 mg Sodium Iodine (4 mcg of Iodine).
Non-medicinal ingredients: Microcrystalline cellulose, vegetable magnesium stearate.
