The thyroid gland produces two primary hormones – thyroxine (also referred to as T4) and tri-iodothyronine (also referred to as T3). Iodine is an essential nutrient required for the production of these hormones and humans need about 150 mcg (millionths of a gram) a day. Avoid iodised salt as this is a different and toxic form of the iodine we need.
