Iodine Ultra Complex – Combination Iodine for Thyroid Patients

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

This combination has been used safely and effectively since the 1800s 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

Why Dr. Childs Recommends It

“Iodine is required by the body to produce thyroid hormone. And because your body can’t produce it, you must get it from some other source.

Iodine Ultra Complex contains a combination of both potassium iodide and molecular iodine at a dose of 12.5mg. Replacing low iodine can naturally improve thyroid function, aid in detoxification of halides, and support breast health.”

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

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.

The recommended dose is 1 capsule per day taken with or without food.

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.

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.

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).

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

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.

Not sure it works but I was convinced by doctor's video that we all need iodine. One thing I've learned throug Hashimoto's is the 'normal' range vs. 'optimal'. So the more we take the proper supplements, the better.

Game changer

Adding Ultra Iodine Complex to my Hashimotos/thyroidectomy management regimen has made a huge difference in my energy levels with no negative side effects. I’m so glad I decided to try it, after years of being advised to avoid iodine entirely.

Wise order

The process of obtaining the product was very easy, and the quality of the product is excellent.

Patricia K.
Iodine Ultra Complex

I feel as though I’m doing something good for my system to work better, but I’m not sure what results I should be seeing.
I’m taking one per day, in the morning, and probably should do more research as to what to expect.
But no negative effects.
