You should contact your doctor before taking iodine. Once the doctor has confirmed that you are fine to take a supplement it can be bought from most drug stores. Your doctor may need to write a prescription for you as some drug stores, particularly in the UK, will require that you have a prescription for iodine but it can be bought online at ‘bobbys-healthy-shop.co.uk’ or if you are in the US you can buy it from ‘drugstore.com’. It comes in either a liquid or tablet form, the liquid costs $6.99 for 2oz and the tablets are currently on sale and cost $7.99 for 180 tablets. Sea Kelp tablets can also be bought as Kelp is extremely rich in iodine.
Iodine is a trace mineral and is crucial for the healthy functioning of the thyroid gland as well as thyroid hormone production. Iodine is only found inconsistently in plant foods, depending on the iodine content of the soil. Food grown near the ocean tends to be higher in iodine. Iodine is consistently found in only a few foods such as dairy products (iodine solutions are used to clean the cows' teats and dairy equipment and end up in the milk) and seafood (including seaweed). Iodine deficiency is not as much of a problem for U.S. Vegans as it is for European vegans, whose food supply contains less iodine.
Iodine is also used to treat cuts and scrapes on the skin as a tincture of iodine, which is a dilute mixture of alcohol and iodine.  Iodine is also used in photography and lasers (silver iodide), in dyes, and as a nutrient added to table salt.
Iodine rarely has any side effects but when it does these can include nausea and stomach pain, runny nose, headache, metallic taste and diarrhoea.
