Iodine for weight loss

See also

Iodine plays a very important role in weight loss, it works to regulate your thyroid activity and hormone production, leading to regular weight loss. For people with thyroid problems, iodine could be what you need to get your weight loss back to normal. Thyroid is a gland that regulates many body processes, including weight, metabolism, and energy. Hypothyroidism is an under-active thyroid gland and will almost always lead to weight gain. One cause of hypothyroidism is a lack of iodine in your body, many people still do not get enough iodine in their diet. This is particularly true if you don’t eat seafood and don’t use salt on your food, using regular table will not replace an iodine deficiency. Iodine for weight loss only works if you have hypothyroidism. If you already have a healthy thyroid and you try to use iodine to lose weight, it could have detrimental side effects. Only work iodine into your weight loss plan when you are working with a doctor.

Always check with your doctor before beginning any new diet or exercise regimen to make sure you are medically able to participate. Only your doctor can determine how much exercise is safe for you. Starting an exercise program that is more strenuous than you are ready for can result in injury and serious medical problems.
