Iodine has been in the news a lot lately because of the devasting tsunami in Japan. First of all, Iodine is a trace mineral required by the body for the synthesis of the thyroid hormones, thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). I'm hypothyroid and I've been supplementing with Thorne Research's Iodine/Tyrosine combo for years. I guess I'm ahead of my time because now everyone wants this supplement to avoid the affects of potential radiation. Click here to listen to what Dr. John Douillard has to say about this situation.
I want to let you know what the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) is doing to help the victims of Japan's earthquake and tsunami disaster. IIN will match all donations (up to $10,000) made by members of the Integrative Nutrition community to fund Save the Children's relief efforts in Japan. Click here for more information.
