Are you getting enough iodine?

by Christina on September 12, 2016

I love Dr. Greger’s NutritionFacts.org and the weekly high-quality and evidence-based videos on nutrition. This week’s videos were excellent – see below:

  1. Why you should care about nutritionnut-facts
  2. Why you may want to consider an iodine supplement (especially if pregnant or breastfeeding):iodineAs a nursing mother I am now going to make sure I am getting 150 micrograms/day of potassium iodide. I just checked and my New Chapter Prenatal Vitamins only have 90 mcg of potassium iodide (and serving size is 3 pills so that is only 30 mcg/pill!)  fullsizerender-13
