NeuroTabs Iodine Tablets
Each tablet contains Potassium Iodate BP, 253mcg equivalent to 150mcg Iodine.
Sucrose and Magnesium Stearate.
NeuroTabs Iodine Tablets support healthy Iodine levels during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Iodine supplementation is especially important during pregnancy and breastfeeding for normal foetal development and infant health.
The New Zealand Ministry of Health has recently issued advice to healthy pregnant and breastfeeding women to supplement their dietary intake of iodine. The Ministry recommends that healthy pregnant and breastfeeding women take a daily 150 mcg iodine-only tablet from confirmation of pregnancy until the discontinuation of breastfeeding. This tablet should be taken in addition to eating well and choosing iodine-containing foods such as low-fat milk products, eggs, seafood, and commercially prepared bread.
Supplementation with an iodine tablet such as NeuroTabs is recommended because it is difficult for pregnant or breastfeeding women to meet their increased requirements for iodine. Iodine is essential for the development of the brain and nervous system before birth, in babies, and in young children. The Ministry's recommendations do not apply to women with pre-existing thyroid disease who should be individually managed to ensure normal thyroid function during pregnancy. Women who report high iodine intakes should have their iodine status assessed before further supplementing with an iodine tablet.
Take one tablet daily or as directed by your health practitioner.
