Iodine is a vital food for the thyroid gland

Iodine is one of the most important elements and a vital food for the thyroid gland. The thyroid regulates our hormone system, which controls all the key biological functions. Iodine cannot be made by the body so has to be introduced via food sources.

However, much of our soil is deficient in nutrients after decades of chemical based intensive monoculture. Iodine deficiency has led to many people having thyroid problems, normally hypothyroidism, or an “under-active” thyroid causing under-production of the essential hormone thyroxine.

This reduces normal metabolic activity and causes symptoms such as extreme fatigue, goiter, mental slowing, depression, weight gain, dry skin and hair, sensitivity to the cold and fertility problems.


Conventional Treatment

Doctors, being trained in pharmaceutical based products, normally recommend supplementing with artificial thyroxine to redress a thyroxine deficiency.

However, this approach does not address the cause of the problem which is the body's inability to produce it’s own thyroxine, normally due to a dietary lack of iodine.

This can result in a “dependency” on artificial thyroxine supplementation via pharmaceutical products which can cause side-effects such as palpitations and chest pain (especially in those with heart disease), muscle cramps, sweating, tremors, diarrhoea, restlessness, insomnia and headaches.


The Natural Way

Many people now prefer instead to supplement their diet with iodine rich foods such as seaweed so that their body has the necessary nutrients to manufacture it's own thyroxine, thereby re-balancing the thyroid and restoring normal metabolic activity in a natural way.

Seagreens® Iodine+ Capsules and Seagreens® Food Capsules have similar amounts of Iodine per daily dose.

Seagreens® Iodine+ Capsules are a single seaweed (Ascophyllum nodosum), whereas Seagreens® Food Capsules are a blend of three seaweeds (Ascophyllum nodosum, Pelvetia canaliculata, and Fucus spiralis).

Seagreens® Food Capsules are blended specifically to have an exceptionally broad nutritional profile whereas Seagreens® Iodine+ Capsules are intended for people who’s primary reason for taking them is to ensure an adequate iodine intake.

Seagreens® Food Capsules would normally be the first choice for most people, due to their blend giving a wider nutrient profile, whereas Seagreens® Iodine+ Capsules are an inexpensive way to boost iodine levels.  Seagreens® Iodine+ Capsules do still have an excellent nutritional profile though.


In the UK, 76% of school aged girls and 66% of adult women are iodine deficient**

Seagreens® is authorised by the European Food Standards Agency to claim the following health benefits:

  • Iodine contributes to the normal production of thyroid hormones and normal thyroid function
  • Iodine contributes to the normal growth of children
  • Iodine contributes to normal cognitive function
  • Iodine contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism
  • Iodine contributes to normal functioning of the nervous system
  • Iodine contributes to the maintenance of normal skin

Customer Reviews of Seagreens® Iodine+ Capsules


Highly recommended

I have been managing an under active thyroid for a few years now and I stopped taking the seagreens seaweed earlier this year and my reading was 21!!!!

After only 3.5 months on 2 tablets a day the reading is at 6.4. - what a difference and even the nurse and doctor are astounded.

I'm hoping it will go back to normal at some point with the magic of plant power...

Update regarding seagreens and under active thyroid

This is my third review on the subject, but if it helps anyone in the same position I would be delighted. My last review , was over 3 years ago and I have been taking Seagreens Iodine Plus for over 4 years now.

This time last year my U.A.T reading went up quite a bit, and I was very worried I would at last have to resort to Thyroxine. My doctor gave me the chance to try to get it down to borderline again so I contacted Seagreens to ask if I could take 2 tablets a day rather than one. They said it was fine to do that and consequently after 3 months my level came back to borderline again.

It has remained there and I am hoping it will continue to do so, although I have to have regular blood tests every three to six months.

I have HALVED my Levothyroxine intake

Just had to register my thanks - after being on your Iodine+ capsules for a year, I have HALVED my Levothyroxine intake from the GP. I have reduced from 150mcg to 75mcg! Please continue your good work.

Keeping Under-Active Thyroid under control naturally

I have been taking Seagreens Iodine+ Capsules for a year along with other Vitamins and Minerals [B 50 Complex, Vit C, Vit E, Selenium, Magnesium and Zinc] also using a non Flouride toothpaste and not eating Cruciferous Vegetables [Cabbage, Brocolli, Sprouts and Cauliflower]. This has been under doctor's supervision who knew I didn't want to take Thyroxin for life, and my Under-Active Thyroid reading has come down from 7.00 to 4.66[normal] I am really delighted.

Positive results from seagreens

I was told five years ago that I was borderline underactive thyriod [reading 5 ]. I started taking ordinary kelp as I did not want to have to go onto thyroxine for life.

Three months ago I had to have another blood test and my doctor said I had gone up to a reading of 7. I told her I still wanted to try and beat this the natural way so I started taking seagreens iodine. I also had free advice from a nutritionist at 'natures best' who advised me to take vitamins b,c,and e. I also stopped eating 'cruciferous' veg [brocali,cabbage,cauli,and sprouts] which I read should be avoided with underactive thyroid.

My doctor sent for me to have another blood test after a further three months and I was delighted to say I had gone down to a reading of 5.9. I feel really positive now I can help myself with natural products.
