Please Note: It has been brought to our attention that some people have a difficult time properly absorbing iodine via the digestive tract. In view of that, it is recommended that it be used as an epidermal application, such as on the stomach. Be careful, it will stain clothing. If you are exhibiting signs of hypothyroidism, it is recommended that Thytrophin be taken to rebuild the thyroid gland. Most people have some degree of diminished thyroid function which may not allow for optimal iodine absorption.
(In the case of Hashimoto’s Disease, Iodine should not be used.)
