Iodine Ultra Complex – Combination Iodine for Thyroid Patients

Iodine Ultra Complex is a combination iodine supplement which contains both potassium iodide and molecular iodine.

This combination has been used safely and effectively since the 1800’s to help promote healthy iodine levels and thyroid regulation.

This complex is perfectly formulated for thyroid patients to help safely maintain iodine levels and thyroid function.

Taking 1 capsule per day for 2 months will allow you to safely replete all iodine stores in both your thyroid gland and other tissues in your body.

Maintenance dose of Iodine Ultra Complex is 1 capsule every 2-3 weeks thereafter.

Regular iodine use promotes healthy thyroid function, healthy breast tissue, and healthy skin function.

Why You Need Iodine

There seems to be a lot of confusion about iodine so we need to set the record straight.

Iodine is a nutrient required for several processes in the body and perhaps one of the most important is the production of thyroid hormone from your thyroid gland.

Humans do not create iodine on their own which means they must consume it from their diet to get it into their body.

There is no other way to get iodine, which is required for optimal health, except to consume it either through supplementation or through your diet.

Most American’s do not consume enough iodine in their diet due to the fact that iodine is primarily found in sea vegetables such as seaweed.

Iodine is also found in iodinated salt but more trendy forms of salt such as Himalayan Pink Salt and Celtic Sea Salt do not contain iodine.

Iodine deficiency is associated with issues in thyroid function (symptoms of hypothyroidism), goiter, birth defects in children, fibrocystic breast disease, and acne.

From these symptoms, you should be able to tell that your thyroid is not the only tissue in your body that needs iodine! Other tissues such as your skin cells and your breast tissue cells do as well.

With the high rate iodine deficiency and the high rate of the symptoms just described, it’s no wonder that many patients may

How to use High Dose Iodine

The recommended daily dose of iodine is 150mcg per day for adults and even higher if you are pregnant or lactating (up to 270mcg per day).

This RDA is sufficient for some individuals but it assumes that you already have a sufficient supply of iodine in your gland and your iodine can hold about 10-15 grams of iodine.

So, why would you consider using high dose iodine over low dose iodine?

The reason is simple:

There are some people who are deficient who need larger doses of iodine than the standard amount (to help replete their stores) and there are also those who simply do better on higher doses of iodine due to genetics, thyroid turnover, or other issues in their body.

High dose iodine is considered anything over 1 gram per day which is the equivalent to 1,000mg per day.

Using high dose iodine can be a game-changer for those with thyroid patients who have never used iodine before.

Iodine and Thyroid Medication

Iodine Ultra Complex can be used in conjunction with all types of thyroid medications but it should not be taken at the same time as your medication.

The dose of this supplement is 1 capsule per day which will provide your body with 7,500 mcg of potassium iodide and 5,000 mcg of molecular iodine.

This combination of iodine ensures that both your thyroid gland and other tissues will receive the iodine.

Iodine is not equally absorbed into all tissues the same and this absorption depends on the form that it is in.

Formulations of iodine which do not contain iodide and iodine will not be able to enter into all cells.

You can take Iodine Ultra Complex daily for 2-3 months to help build up your iodine stores.

At that point, you can switch to a lower dose iodine (200-300mcg per day) as a maintenance dose or you can simply take 1 capsule of Iodine Ultra Complex every 2-3 weeks as a maintenance dose. This will provide your body with around 590mcg of iodine (once every 3 weeks) to 892mcg of iodine (once every 2 weeks). I take iodine in this way and it is an easy way to maintain iodine stores of both iodine and iodide in your body.

If you find that you feel better on higher dose iodine then it is safe to take it daily.

You should not use high dose iodine if you are selenium deficient, however, so I recommend that you take high dose iodine in conjunction with selenium to be safe.

Taking Iodine If you Have Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis

There is also a lot of confusion regarding the use of iodine in the setting of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis.

Some studies have suggested a link between taking iodine and the development of Hashimoto’s but this link is not well established.

But, remember, iodine is a REQUIRED essential nutrient!

Even if you have Hashimoto’s your body still needs iodine.

So iodine is not only helpful if you have Hashimoto’s thyroiditis but it is also required.

The key is to use Iodine in conjunction with selenium to prevent damage to the thyroid gland.

In addition, you will never want to exceed a maximum dose of 12.5mg of iodine per day (which is 1 capsule of Iodine Ultra Complex).

Increasing your dose beyond this amount for a long period of time may cause issues in your thyroid gland.

FAQ

1.) Is this the Right Supplement for me?

The answer is almost always yes!

All humans require iodine for proper thyroid function and regulation. If you are not getting iodine from your diet (seafood or iodized salt) then you will require supplementation.

2.) How do you take it?

1 capsule per day for 60-90 days is the recommended dose.

After 2-3 months you can take 1 capsule every 2-3 weeks.

3.) Can I take this with Thyroid Medication or other Supplements?

Yes! All of our supplements (including this one) are designed to be taken with all types of thyroid medication. This includes T4 medications, T3 medication, and T4 + T3 combination medications.

4.) Are there any side effects?

You should not experience negative side effects while taking Iodine Ultra Complex.

Rarely, we do see some people who experience bromoderma (which is an eruption of papules on the face/skin) which is felt to be a detoxification reaction as your body eliminates halides which share a similar electron structure to iodine. This reaction doesn’t last very long and is your body purging itself of these substances (which is a good thing).

If you experience any symptoms while taking Iodine Ultra Complex you can back off of your dose to 1 capsule every other day or 1 capsule every third day while your body adjusts.

5.) Can I use this with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis?

Yes, this supplement can be safely used if you have Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, regular hypothyroidism or if you have no thyroid (post-thyroidectomy patients or post radioactive iodine ablation patients).

6.) What if I don’t have thyroid issues?

All humans require Iodine so there is still a need for supplementation (with or without thyroid problems).

7.) Can I use this with other supplements?

Yes, this supplement can be combined with my other supplements!

It’s designed to be taken in conjunction with Thyroid Adrenal Reset Complex and T3 Conversion Booster as a trio but can be taken alone as well.
