Iodine and Animal Nutrition
Why is Iodine Important in
Iodine, deficient in many
soils, grasses, forage crops, and feeds, is essential for healthy
Iodine is historically
recognized as one of the most important nutrients for animal health.
No element is more critical for metabolism. Iodine deficiency
disorders are one of the most prevalent animal disease conditions in
the world. Iodine Deficiencies in animals can cause general weakness,
irregular estrus periods, abortion and still births, decreased male
fertility, blindness, poor coat and wool production, and goiter.
Ocean seawater contains
substantial levels of Iodine, a rare element on the Earth’s crust.
Thorvin’s kelps collect Iodine from the sea waters they grow in. They
store the iodine along with other vitamins, minerals, and amino acids
in a form that animals can readily absorb. The slower growing kelps
from richer waters, such as our Laminaria species, contain several
times more Iodine.
