Life Flo Liquid Iodine Plus is a dietary supplement whose one serving contains a combination of iodine and iodide, in form of potassium salt. The preparation is available in a liquid form, which guarantees easy dosing and comfort of supplementation.
Iodine is a microelement essential for the functioning of the whole organism. Its main function is participation in the biosynthesis of thyroid gland hormones, which have wide influence on metabolism of proteins, fats, carbohydrates and high-energy compounds as well as determine the proper development of human body. After being absorbed into the body system, iodine undergoes transformations resulting in its binding with organic compounds, which are essential for the proper functioning of thyroid gland, where hormones are produced (thyroxine T4 and triiodothyronine T3).
Iodine supports the functioning of other endocrine glands, such as pancrease, adrenal glands, pituitary gland, pineal gland, thymus and genital organs. As it is contained in salivary glands and the mucous membrane of the stomach, it participates in digestion. Iodine deficiencies lead to increased production of mucus, fatigue, headache and migraines as well as can cause excessive growth of scar tissue.
Iodine can affect the control over body weight and weight loss. In the body system, iodine is accumulated in adipocytes (fat cells). The same property have also toxic halide compounds, which inhibit adipose tissue reduction. It turned out that a short-term therapy with high doses of iodine (12.5 mg), combined with L-thyrosine supplementation, prevents negative influence of halides.
Iodine deficiencies can be related with infertility. Providing proper amounts of iodine is particularly important for women, as there are large amounts of the element accumulated in thyroid gland, breasts and ovaries. Insufficient amount of iodine in women’s diet can lead to menstrual disorders, infertility, premature menopause and higher risk of ovaries diseases.
Iodine deficiency disorders (IDD) are characterised by i.a. goitre, hypothyroidism, impaired mental development and body growth. Iodine deficiencies are particularly common in children, teenagers and people during the period of intensive growth or adolescence, which is associated with increased demand for thyroid gland hormones. Not so long ago, it has been discovered that already small deficiencies of iodine during body growth can reduce IQ up to 15–20%.
Some more current data indicate a bit higher demand for iodine; the minimal recommended dose amounts for 0.1 mg per body kilogram a day. As an example, a man weighing 80 kg should consume 8 mg of iodine daily.At the beginning of the 20. century, the similar preparation containing iodine or iodide was called Lugol’s iodine and was widely used in case of both hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. The recommended dose was then 12.5–37.5 mg of iodine.
RDA norms (Recommended Daily Allowance) for vitamins and minerals were set after the second World War. Recommendation for iodine was one of the last and the most important, which was set in the second half of the 20. century and eventually confirmed in 1989. RDA for iodine is based on the amounts of iodine/iodide essential for preventing goitre formation, extremelly low IQ and hypothyroidism. The optimal demand for the element, supporting physical and mental well-being, has not been investigated yet. Basing on the results of Japanese demographic studies, the researchers conclude that Japanese people, are one of the healthiest nation in the world and they consume 13.8 mg of iodine a day.
Population of inland countries, including Poland, are particularly exposed to iodine deficiencies. An evidence for that can be the fact that both salt and fodder have been being enriched with iodine for some time. This aims at preventing iodine deficiencies. In accordance with that, another groups exposed to the risk of iodine deficiencies and their consequences are people avoing salt and meat.
You should also remember that large amounts of iodine provided with food are only preventive doses, which is why the model of balanced and regular supplementation seems to be the most beneficial, and the need for that is confirmed by even most common cases of inflammations and diseases of thyroid gland.
To sum it all up, Life Flo Liquid Iodine Plus is a dietary supplement whose systematic use prevents iodine deficiencies, supports the maintenance of the proper thyroid gland hormones production, cognitive functions and nervous system functions, contributes to the proper energy metabolism and helps to keep your skin healthy.
The recommended dose amounts for 3 drops a day. Using the recommended dose of the preparation is 100% safe. According to the average lethal doses for laboratory animals, iodine is an element outside the list of highly toxic substances (the doses dangerous for rats after intragastric application amount for 14,000 mg per body kilogram.

Iodine - more than two-thirds of iodine is stored in the thyroid gland and it is a component produced by it hormones - thyroxine and triiodothyronine, which are essential in the metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates and minerals and regulating the processes of growth, causing it usefulness in sports supplementation. It is also the ingredient of weight loss products. Regulates and controls body temperature. Natural source of acquisition of iodine are: bladderwrack, seafood, sea fish and onion and vegetables growing in soil containing this element and most of all iodized salt ..
Deficiency of iodine in the body cause hypothyroidism, and consequently overweight, mental slowing (cretinism inclusive). It is the cause of a goitre. Iodine deficiency can be caused by rhodanates and polyphenols (e.g. contained in cabbage and cauliflower), hemagglutinin found in legumes.
Excess iodine can result in inhibition of thyroid hormone synthesis (this happens in a small percentage of cases).
Dosage: Treatment of iodine should be done under medical supervision. Daily demand for adults is 150 mcg. For pregnant women daily demand increases to 175 mcg.
Potassium and sodium regulate the body's water resources, ensuring normal heart rhythm. Maintaining the proper level of potassium provides the proper oxidation of the brain, lowers blood pressure, increases the permeability of cell membranes (as an antagonist of calcium). It is a base-forming element. It is widely used in sports diet before and after training in the form of supplements, nutrients, vitamin-mineral preparations and minerals, concentrates and ready, isotonic and hypertonic beverages. Natural sources of acquisition of potassium are: vegetable products (bananas, citrus fruits, melons, mint leaves, green vegetables, potatoes) and animal products (sea fish, meat). Potassium is present in the form of organic compounds: citric acids, and fumarates gluconates and inorganic (chlorides, sulfates, oxides and carbonates).
Potassium deficiency (hypokalemia): excessive tiredness, headaches and irritability, problems with sleeping, muscle cramps, constipation. Potassium levels may drop sharply in the event of a reduction in blood sugar levels, prolonged starvation, severe diarrhea. They can occur when too much of strong coffee is consumed, with alcohol abuse and when eating too much sweets.
The excess of potassium (hyperkalemia) is often the cause of depression, hypotension, tingling in the extremities.
