So, what is iodine?

Iodine is a trace element that is essential for the proper functioning of the human body. It plays a vital role in thyroid hormone synthesis, which helps regulate metabolism and promote growth and development. This essential mineral is naturally found in seafood, dairy products, and iodized salt. However, many people may not consume enough iodine, leading to iodine deficiency and related health problems. Iodine is a crucial component of a healthy diet, and its deficiency can cause goiters, hypothyroidism, cognitive impairment, and other health issues. Therefore, it is important to ensure adequate intake of iodine through a balanced diet or supplements.
