Lugol's Iodine is the ONLY form of Iodine that has been studied, therefore, it is the only form of Iodine recommended for use. Lugol's liquid or Tablets may be used. Lugol's Tablets were formulated for sensitive stomachs to avoid gastric irritation.
Vitamin C, preferable from a whole food source should be taken at least 3-4 hours after iodine. Ascorbic acid is NOT vitamin C. Vitamin C from whole food is recommended and is 100% absorbed by the body.
Magnesium For Thyroid
Selenium For Thyroid
**Selenium can accumulate in the body and become toxic. Run an RBC Selenium test prior to starting Selenium. If your test result indicates a deficiency, start taking Selenium. If your result is mid-range, use it sparingly and re-check every 6 months. If your result is above the reference range, no selenium is needed, but re-test every 6 months while on iodine to stay on top of it.
