Best way to supplement iodine
Hi Wray. Which is the best way to supplement iodine? I've tried the topical application (with iodine tincture), and the stain disappeared after a few hours. However, the only strength of tincture I could find was 1.5%, so I don't know whether that had something to do with the stain disappearing. I've also seen that iodine drops (to be taken orally) are also available.
Which route do you recommend?
Some 30 years ago, my mom was diagnosed with overactive thyroid and was told to avoid iodine. As a result, I grew up avoiding iodised salt. After reading up on the importance of iodine, and the general lack of it among the population, I'm beginning to wonder if I might be deficient.
