  • Prolamine Iodine is one of three iodine products created by Standard Process‚ but it is the one that contains the most iodine. The best use for Prolamine Iodine is for short-term boosting of serum iodine levels.

    What is Iodine?

    You may have heard of iodine supplements that are used to purify drinking water‚ or as a disinfectant to clean wounds‚ but iodine is actually an essential trace mineral. Your body needs very small quantities of iodine to function properly‚ but without it‚ major bodily functions won’t work properly.

    Iodine is needed for the body to synthesize thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3) – two thyroid hormones. Triiodothyronine is essentially thyroxine with one less iodine atom. Normally‚ there are about 20 to 30 milligrams of iodine present in the body‚ most of which is stored in the thyroid gland. You can also find smaller quantities of iodine in lactating mammary glands‚ salivary glands‚ the stomach lining and in the blood.

    Because it is a component of two thyroid hormones‚ it is essential for life. Without it‚ you wouldn’t be able to synthesize these hormones and your health and well-being would suffer devastating impacts.

    Iodine Deficiency

    Many years ago‚ before iodized salt came to be‚ iodine deficiency was rampant in the United States and Canada. Fortunately‚ since the advent of iodized salt‚ the problem has significantly been reduced. In addition to the salt‚ iodine has also been added to commercial animal feed – which means that small amounts of iodine are also transferred into milks and cheeses. For people in some developing countries and for those who avoid iodized salt and dairy‚ iodine deficiency is a major problem. People suffering from iodine deficiencies end up with reduced thyroid hormones.

    One common hallmark of iodine is a goiter – which is essentially a bloated thyroid gland. Since the thyroid is found in the neck‚ this is visible externally as a puffy neck. This happens because the thyroid gland becomes over stimulated as the body continues to attempt to produce thyroxine and triiodothyronine‚ which it cannot do without adequate iodine. It is important to note that a goiter can be present for many reasons‚ but iodine deficiency is one of the most common causes throughout the world.

    Iodine deficiency becomes more serious if it is allowed to progress. It can eventually lead to hypothyroidism‚ which can result in many undesirable symptoms that include weight gain‚ weakness‚ fatigue and depression. Somewhat surprisingly‚ a deficiency in iodine can also lead to hyperthyroidism‚ which comes with symptoms of weight loss‚ appetite fluctuations and a rapid heartbeat.

    Iodine deficiency during pregnancy can cause the infant’s thyroid to malfunction and may even cause severe mental retardation‚ deafness‚ stunted growth and spasticity. Fortunately‚ if it is discovered early‚ iodine supplementation can help the child return to normal.

    It is actually quite easy to prevent iodine deficiency‚ but if you already have the signs that have been confirmed by a doctor‚ Prolamine Iodine by Standard Process can help get your levels back to normal so your thyroid may begin functioning properly once again.



    Certain Standard Process supplements may feature a clear gelatin capsule as opposed to a colored gelatin capsule. If you’re accustomed to receiving these supplements in colored gelatin capsules‚ please be advised that there are absolutely no changes to the formulation or capsule weight of each supplement.

    If you identify Standard Process supplements by color‚ it is recommended that Standard Process supplements be kept in their original bottle or that pillboxes be appropriately labeled.

    Please note that if you still have Standard Process supplements that feature the colored gelatin capsule‚ there are no health concerns with them.

    Prolamine Iodine is a must have for Adre

    I have adrenal fatique as diagnosed by my doctor. After trying different supplements we came to Iodine. Taking Prolamine Iodine was like an overnight transformation. I finally have energy again!

    Pros

      Higher concentration of Iodine in one pill than other suplements.

    Cons

      Wished a higher dose was offered so I wouldnt have to take as many pills a day

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Iodine

    It turns out I was severely lacking iodine. My doctor put me on Prolamine Iodine temporarily. It seemed to alleviate many of my fatigue symptoms. Iodine is tricky and should only be taken with doctor supervision/advice since it may actually make symptoms (especially auto-immune ones) worse.

    Great Product!

    I order Prolamine Iodine because my Chiropractor recommended it to help me with my global inflammation and weight gain. He said it would help regulate my thyroid. Ive have been on it for a week and I can tell the difference. My energy level is up and my weight is going down. I will be reordering this but in a bigger supply. The quality of Prolamine Iodine is great and it arrived very fast. I am very happy with Prolamine Iodine and the results.

    Pros

      It works! It is easy to swallow. It got here fast. I like the heavy duty bottle. I like the price and quanity.

    Cons

      Nothing

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    High potency. Low price.

    I was first prescribed Prolamine Iodine for a thyroid condition by my naturopath. I got a little tired of driving 20 minutes to get it so I looked around online. Not only does pureformulas.com have the best price but they offer free shipping too. As for Prolamine Iodine it helps my mood and also my ability to regulate body temperature.

    Great support for women entering menopau

    This product was recommended by my doctor as a means of thyroid support as I enter menopause. My thyroid numbers were average to low and he told me that there had been great research behind iodine (prolamine as the organic form) as a natural form of support and thereby avoiding the route a great deal of women take during or after menopause in having to go on prescription thyroid medicene due to a sluggish thryoid (which cooincidentally is the case with both my mother and sister).

    Pros

      easy to take as any other supplement with no adverse effects stomach upset etc.

    Cons

      nothing

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Standard Process iodine is great

    I love the standard process iodine. It is a very potent form of iodine and comparing Prolamine Iodine to other forms of iodine that I have used it is easier to take and carry. I have to take much less of Prolamine Iodine than other herb forms. Prolamine Iodine has helped tremendously with hair loss circulatory issues as well as respiratory and hormone balance.

    Pros

      Small and requires less pill to satisfy my daily dose.

    Cons

      Would love it in cap form but woud probably require more pills!

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
