Top Health Benefits of Iodine

Thyroid Health
The thyroid cannot function without iodine to make the hormone thyroxine. Without thyroxine the body is unable to regulate metabolism, heart function, temperature, reproduction, and growth. It can also affect weight, cognitive ability, and mood.

Skin health
A lack of iodine will result in dry, flaky skin and a lack of sweating. Sweating is critical to the body to release toxins and maintain proper body temperature. Iodine deficiency will also result in a dry mouth and lack of saliva.
