The National Library of Medicine states, Iodine Deficiency Disorders (IDD) are one of the biggest worldwide public health problems of today. (5)
With the recommended daily intake for women set at 150 mcg, it is fair to say that many women are falling short of their daily needs.
Some symptoms of an iodine deficiency include fatigue or lethargy, brain fog, memory problems, thinning hair, constipation, depression, difficulty losing weight, headaches, and dry skin.
