Note: We have had on the market our product 8240-500 Iodine 150 μg from Kelp seaweed extract for 30 years, but due to the difficulties we have found in the production of the last batches, to obtain the raw material from seaweed Kelp that guarantees stable levels of Iodine as well as the absence of contaminants, in July 2017 we value reformulate this product, achieving a guaranteed and stable contribution of 150 μg of iodine in the form of potassium iodide.
As this situation of instability in the sources of Kelp algae is worldwide, also the Spanish health authorities have sampled products of Iodine from Kelp algae present in the market and our previous presentation was analyzed by the Directorate General of Public Health of the Ministry of Madrid and the result is:
IODINE FOOD COMPLEMENT 150μg seal 0002972: no cadmium was detected in the sample.
Although the result obtained was expected, since the GMP manufacturing standards guarantee the finished product, and that our previous product also complies with the "Regulation 1881/2006, by which the maximum content of certain contaminants in the food products, and their modifications ", we continue with the new presentation that prevents the production delayed by the difficult procurement of guaranteed raw material and also provides a more stable and safe level of Iodine for our consumers.
Iodine 150µg as potassium iodide:
The richest sources of iodine are sea vegetables such as kelp (which can absorb significant amounts from seawater) and fish, although it can be difficult to obtain enough from fish, unless you it eat fish regularly. Dairy foods such as milk are also a rich source. If you eat little or no fish or dairy then an iodine supplement is necessary, to plug any shortfalls in the diet. More recent research has highlighted pregnant women and those breastfeeding and teenage girls as groups that fall short of adequate intakes.
Although needed by the body in only tiny amounts, iodine plays a vitally important role in health and wellbeing. Iodine is used by the thyroid gland to produce the hormones thyroxine and tri-iodo thyroxine. These control our metabolic rate, the speed at which our body burns fat and sugars to release energy. Iodine is also needed for normal growth and development and skin health.
