[AlternativeAnswers] Iodine and Weight Loss


I want to share two paragraphs that I found on iodine.

How iodine accelerates weight loss by supporting the thyroid glandby Dani
Veracity, citizen journalist

If adjusting your diet and exercising more hasn't helped you reach a healthy
body weight, you may have hypothyroidism, or an underactive thyroid gland. In
addition to weight gain, other symptoms of hypothyroidism include a bad
complexion, fatigue, forgetfulness, loss of sex drive, impotence, irritability
and unhealthy hair, nails and teeth. Fortunately, you can help normalize an
underactive thyroid gland by increasing your intake of the mineral iodine.

"The healthy functioning of the thyroid is essential to maintaining
metabolism and preventing the accumulation of body fat," writes Burton Goldberg
in Alternative Medicine. An underactive thyroid gland slows your metabolism; you
thus burn dramatically fewer calories and feel sluggish. In addition, in Asian
Health Secrets, Letha Hadady explains that an underactive thyroid gland promotes
excess weight and cellulite by causing water retention.
