what is iodine & are we getting enough?

Generally, I have seen that while many people have heard of iodine, not so many people know where we can find in in our diets, and what is does for us, so I was excited by the opportunity to write this blog.

Iodine is an essential trace element in our diets and plays an important role in normal growth and development. Iodine deficiency is a significant public health problem worldwide (1,2). It effects 2 billion people worldwide, and recently prevalence in the UK has increased, particularly among adolescent females and pregnant women (3,4).

In this article you can find out more about the function of iodine, food sources, iodine deficiency & prevalence, iodine recommendations & supplements, and risks of excess iodine.
