Iodine is essential for a variety of functions in the body such as overall metabolism, growth, and cognitive development. Iodine is used by the body to synthesize the thyroid hormones T3 (triiodothyronine) and T4 (thyroxine). The nutritional cofactors in Iodine Px support the organification of iodine as well as the sodium-iodide symporter. Selenium is an essential component of the enzyme iodothyronine deiodinase, which is important for the conversion of T4 (inactive) to T3 (active). In this way, selenium may help to maintain thyroid hormone stability. Copper is included to help to control multiple hormone levels. Riboflavin is important for the production of flavoproteins (e.g., FMN and FAD) and the activation of B6. It is also responsible for the coenzyme conversion of tryptophan to niacin, and folate to tetrahydrofolate. Iodine Px is based on the Lugol iodine/iodide formulation that was successfully used to help balance thyroid activity by the Eclectic Physicians during the early 1900s. Cautions and Contraindications Ingestion of iodine and/or iodide has been associated with heart palpitations, acne-like skin lesions, headache in the frontal sinus cavities, and unpleasant brassy taste, as well as increased salivation and sneezing. Some sensitive individuals may not tolerate high doses of iodine, even when clinically indicated. Iodine supplementation indirectly stimulates TSH production which increases the absorption of iodine into the thyroid gland. While Iodine Px may cause a transient increase of TSH, it simultaneously maintains healthy thyroid hormone levels in most patients. High doses of Iodine administered in a small subsection of patients with Hashimotos Disease can be aggravated by Iodine. In these cases where T4 levels drop, discontinue use. Iodine Px is not a replacement for thyroid hormone therapy.
