How Much Selenium for IR?


#1

If I take 50mg of iodine per day to replenish stores, how much selenium should I take during the process?
Directly referencing


#2

200mcg If you never take selenium at this dose should start selenium days before starting ir. You continue 200mcg day through out.

Source is @KSman. Surprised it’s not in the sticky.

NOT 200mg, its 200mcg (Micrograms). Big difference.


#6

I fixed it b thanks.

I suggest 200mg selenium based on my reading and the content of many multi-vits that contain iodine and selenium. Getting single mineral supplements is not cost effective.
