1. what do iodine tablets do?

If you cannot cover your daily iodine requirement with food, you have to supply your organism with additional iodine. Iodine tablets are particularly suitable for this purpose. With iodine in the form of food supplements, one can not only correct iodine deficiencies, but also counteract a deficiency. Pregnant and breastfeeding women in particular have an increased need for iodine, as they have to supply their offspring via the umbilical cord and breast milk.

2 How much iodine should be consumed daily?

The German Nutrition Society (DGE) recommends a daily intake of 180-200 micrograms of iodine for adults. For a young child, the recommended amounts of iodine are naturally lower. However, the recommended daily intake increases with physical activity, as iodine is excreted through sweat. The recommended daily intake of iodine for pregnant and breastfeeding women is about 230 µg, as they have to provide for their child as well.

3. symptoms of iodine deficiency

  • Skin changes
  • Tightness
  • Feeling of pressure in the throat
  • Lack of drive
  • tiredness
  • Sensitivity to cold
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Breathing difficulties

4. which foods contain particularly large amounts of iodine?

Iodine is found mainly in the oceans, so foods that come from the sea contain a high amount of iodine. Plant foods that grow on the ground tend to be low in iodine and contain only small amounts of the trace element. In order to maintain an adequate iodine supply, the DGE (German Nutrition Society) recommends eating sea fish twice a week.
