Iodine deficiency

Iodine deficiency - Greendar We care about life and health

Iodine is a vital trace element and should enter the human body every day

According to WHO - the daily rate for adults is 200 mcg.

But, unfortunately, the majority of the population receives 40-80 mcg per day.

We remember that iodine is an integral part of thyroid hormones, which, in fact, are responsible for the activity of metabolic processes, for the formation and function of most brain functions.

Since this trace element has anticancer and antifungal action, is a natural antiseptic and also activates the process of detoxification (from chlorine, fluorine, mercury ...), every cell of our body needs it.

  • Iodine deficiency provokes:
  • problems with the thyroid gland
  • psoriasis
  • allergy
  • cysts and nodes
  • constipation
  • dry skin
  • chest pain
  • vaginal infections
  • unregulated cycle
  • prostatitis
  • genital herpes
  • cognitive impairment
  • cancer of the thyroid gland, breast, uterus, ovaries
  • type 2 diabetes
  • hearing loss
  • depression ... and so on

To test for iodine deficiency, we recommend that you have an analysis done in a lab.

It is also possible to run a small test at home:

Better in the morning after a shower. With a cotton swab dipped in iodine, draw three lines on the wrist - from a thick saturated to a thin fix the time of application of the strips for 24 hours watching the color change


  • within 24 hours, the thin line disappeared, and the rest just lit up - there is no iodine deficiency
  • in 18 - 24 hours thin and middle lines disappeared - there is a slight lack of iodine, not critical.
  • all three lines have disappeared, and a small trace remains of a thick one - there is a deficit and it is necessary to solve the problem.
  • in 24 hours and less all the bands disappeared without a trace - a signal of a serious lack of iodine, it is necessary to fill the required amount as soon as possible.

Iodine is not synthesized in humans, it must come with food. And since our country is considered iodine deficient, we recommend that you include dietary supplements (dietary supplements) in your diet
