Why You Should Assure An Adequate Iodine Intake | Dietary Supplements

Iodine is most known for its relationship to the production of thyroid hormones. Not well known is that iodine also functions as a key antioxidant that protects cell membrane fatty acids from free radical attack. This is important for all cell membranes, however, in the context of disease risk, it is especially important for protection against breast cancer and prostate cancer

The National Institutes of Health has an Office of Dietary Supplements that published a Fact Sheet about iodine (3). It describes a study wherein researchers randomly assigned 111 women (18–50 years of age) with fibrosis and a history of breast pain to receive tablets containing 0 mcg, 1,500 mcg, 3,000 mcg, or 6,000 mcg of iodine per day. After 5 months of treatment, women receiving doses of 3,000 or 6,000 mcg iodine had a significant decrease in breast pain, tenderness, and nodularity compared with those receiving placebo or 1,500 mcg iodine. The researchers also reported a dose-dependent reduction in self-assessed pain. None of the doses was associated with major adverse events or changes in thyroid function test results. As the upper limit in the United States is only 1100 mcg, this NIH Fact Sheet recommends that doses of 1,500-6000 mcg per day should only be used under the guidance of a physician.
