Iodine and a healthy metabolism

When it comes to weight loss, many people see success when they stick to a strict diet and exercise regime. However, for some people, excess weight is incredibly hard to get rid of and unexpected weight gain is a frustrating problem. When this is the case, a closer look at the diet may be required and a potential iodine mineral deficiency should be addressed.

Iodine is an essential mineral that is absorbed by the thyroid gland to produce thyroid hormones which directly affect metabolism. By optimizing thyroid function through iodine intake, you can produce more thyroid hormone and ultimately increase metabolism, shredding that extra fat much faster. Those who suffer from a slow metabolism often put on weight easily and find it difficult to shift excess fat, even while dieting and working out.

Although it's true that genetics do play a role in the speed of your metabolism, there are controllable ways to give it a boost naturally. When thyroid hormones are low or insufficient, the body burns fewer calories, making it easier to overeat and gain weight.

Start with testing, then treatment, then re-test again annually.  Learn more.
