Whole Body Iodine Sufficiency:

The human body can hold up to a total of 1500mg of iodine. Of this amount, the thyroid gland holds up to 50mg. Twenty percent of total body iodine sits in the skin, 32 percent is in the muscles, and 35 percent is in the fat. Iodine supports many bodily functions other than being carried around by thyroid hormone. In the current medical literature there is much debate on iodine and autoimmune problems. This topic warrants further discussion with a look at the broader role of iodine for total body health.
