    Wait, I thought RDA was 150 mcg.... What is the troll-supported moderate dose of iodine supplementation?

    I'm making an effort to eat 2-3 raw brazil nuts for their selenium content. That should mitigate a portion of the risk.

    I was tested for autoimmune issues 2 years ago and was found to have no issues despite having similar symptoms to the ones that are currently prompting me to try out iodine: cold hands and feet, sluggish brain, fatigue, irritability.
    I agree with Serenity, you need to be very careful supplementing with iodine if you are hypothyroid. I found this out the hard way. You may still have hypothyroid symptoms with "normal' blood work. There are many causes of thyroid not functioning optimally and most doctors do not dig very deep to find the causes. I suggest watching some of Dr. Clark's videos:

    With regards to dosage, I'm not looking to take great whopping spoonfulls of the stuff. I'm looking to stay at 300-500mcg in additional consumption on top of current diet. I would prefer to consume it naturally, but I'm a bit cautious about seaweed. A lot of the stuff I see has labels in a foreign language. I like labels that I can read. As far as fishy things....I'm not a big fan of anything that isn't in sashimi form and sashimi is kerspensive. I'm working on it, but the smell of cooked fish just doesn't appeal.

    I know, I know...this lady doth protest too much.

    Nstocks,

    Ginkgo biloba is good for improving blood flow and circulation, but mainly on the upper extremities, specifically the head/face.

    Depending on the reasons for your cold toes, continued supplementation with Ginkgo may make your cold toes worse....not saying it will though, however.

    It was recommended to me when I wrote a "Dear Mark" email. I've discontinued using it because it didn't really make a difference. Stress was mentioned as another possible factor but I'm really not stressed. I may look into Kelp noodles because I seem to just waste a lot of money on isolated supplements.
