Iodine is a trace element that is important to the production of Thyroid Hormones that regulate the metabolism and many other biological processes in the body. Besides helping regulate metabolic functions, iodine also plays a role in skeletal and central nervous system development.
Iodine is naturally present in some foods and added to others. Foods like soy, broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage have been shown to inhibit iodine absorption. Try to avoid taking iodine alongside foods such as these. Meanwhile, iodine and selenium compliment each other and eating foods rich in these minerals may have a synergistic effect when consumed together. *
