Better Nutrition Iodine Evaluation


Why the Better Nutrition Iodine Evaluation?

The Better Nutrition Iodine Evaluation is the first and only tool to help you review and assess your client’s current total nutrition to discover what could be better to give your client’s body the iodine it needs.  It also helps you review and identify any issues that could prevent better iodine absorption and use by your client’s body. Your client likely won’t come to you to ask for an iodine assessment, but you know that if you are providing nutrition counseling to a pregnant client or to one that is exhibiting hormone imbalance, you’ll want to pull this evaluation out of your toolbox!

Why Iodine?

Iodine is essential for healthy thyroid hormone production and also plays an important role in fetal brain development and growth. Most adults need about 150 mcg/day but your client also needs to make sure iodine is not competing with and losing to chemicals or other minerals.

What should you do with the Better Nutrition Iodine Evaluation?

Invite your client to take the quiz and share the results with you so that you can make better, personalized, total nutrition recommendations. If you are a healthcare provider, get permission to share the results with the other members of your client’s healthcare team.

Did you know that you can seamlessly use these tools with your Practice Better, Healthie and other EHR accounts? For an example, Learn how to Practice Better Nutrition in this post.


Is your client’s daily total nutrition giving the body the amount of iodine it needs to run better?
Use the Better Nutrition Iodine Evaluation to find out! Your client’s body uses iodine primarily for thyroid hormone production. That means enough iodine is key for a healthy thyroid as well as for metabolism, energy, healthy hair and skin. What your client eats, sips and pops either gives the body enough iodine or it doesn’t.

What choices deliver iodine better?

Better iodine choices are some combination of foods and possibly a supplement. Your ultimate recommendation for your client depends on the results of the Better Nutrition Iodine Evaluation and on your client’s current health, medications, and health goal(s), what your client has access to and your client’s preferences.

What are better iodine supplements ?
