Beneficial additional supplement
In my opinion most people are likely to be iodine deficient. Iodine is no longer added to salt. Our soils and foods other than sea foods are generally deficient, but more importantly other chemical halides such as chlorine and flourine in our water supplies compete with iodine for uptake by the thyroid gland. The prostate gland in males also has numerous iodine receptors. Although I have hypothyroidism (low thyroid function) as well as prostate problems, merely for the above reasons, maintaining higher levels of iodine intake may be beneficial for most people. Although I already supplement my iodine uptake with kelp, I have still found in my case that the dermal pathway provide for by this product is a beneficial additional means of iodine supplementation. Provided it is applied on different parts of the body, this product also has the additional benefit of indicating iodine load by way of the fade test. However it can cause irritation if applied on more sensitive skin, and this is something that perhaps women folk in particular, need to be more cautious about.
