What is Yodica?

Is a nutritional formulation that contains iodine. It helps the proper functioning of iodine-collecting organs such as the thyroid, prostate, breast, pancreas, ovaries, and the immune and nervous systems.

Is Yodica medicine?

Yodica is not a medicine; Yodica is the combination of potassium iodide and molecular iodine. However, although it is a natural compound, some people can be intolerant, or its excess can generate side effects, so its first-time consumption must be monitored. Contact us!

What side effects can it cause?

The recommended dose of Yodica does not generate any side effects to the general population. However, its excess or sensitivity can cause stomach irritation, rash, and even hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism. It has been described that 1% of the world's population may be intolerant of iodine. For this reason, the intake of Yodica should be consulted with our research team.

How is Yodica prepared?

Yodica is available in an oral solution to be administered in drops. A glass dropper with 70 ml allows a supply between 3 to 8 months, depending on the recommended dose.

What presentations do you have?

Yodica comes in two presentations, one for human use and one for veterinary use.

What can it be used for?

molecular iodine is recommended to attenuate symptoms of benign pathologies such as prostatic hyperplasia, breast fibrosis, polycystic ovaries, premenstrual syndrome, metabolic syndrome, or as an adjuvant in conventional chemotherapy treatments for various types of cancer.

What effects does Yodica have?

Molecular iodine that contains Yodica is an excellent antioxidant that allows to reduce oxidative stress throughout the body by attenuating inflammation processes (benign pathologies) or secondary effects to chemotherapy treatment. Yodica consumption in small and continuous doses does not generate any side or adverse effects. It is not antagonism with practically any medication, but it is necessary to consult us before ingesting Yodica for the first time.

Why is Yodica different from iodized salt?

Iodized salt contains enough amounts of sodium iodide to allow the thyroid gland to develop correctly, however, some commercial salt has not included the iodide supplement. Yodica offers you in addition to the appropriate iodide supplement, the necessary amount of molecular iodine that allows the proper functioning of other organs such as the mammary glands, prostate, pancreas, and digestive, reproductive and nervous systems.

Can I get a sufficient amount of iodine with a multivitamin?

The combination of Yodica is different from other iodine supplements, including multivitamins. Yodica contains potassium iodide and molecular iodine. Most multivitamin formulations contain only iodide. Molecular iodine can only be ingested naturally from the consumption of fresh seaweed, and in the pharmaceutical industry, there are no supplements that contain it.

Who can take Yodica?

Middle and older adults who need to increase their iodine consumption.

People with benign pathologies such as prostatic hyperplasia, breast fibrosis, polycystic ovaries, premenstrual syndrome, metabolic syndrome, etc.

People who will receive chemotherapy as a treatment for malignant pathologies (breast cancer, prostate cancer, etc.)

In addition, it is important NOT to consume it if you:

  • You are pregnant or breastfeeding.

  • Have a known allergy or hypersensitivity to iodine.

  • You have a history of thyroid disease.

Can it be used as a preventive or only as a supplement in pathologies?

Yodica is usefull in both situations. A low dose can be administered as preventive or maintenance, and a moderated dose is recommended as an adjuvant in preestablished benign pathologies or cancer.

The appropriate dose for each case should be consulted with our research group.

How often should it be taken?

Yodica is taken once a day, in drops diluted in liquid (milk, water, juice, etc.) at room temperature after eating any food, like breakfast, lunch or dinner.

What happens if I forget to take the drops for a day or two?

Resume your consumption as you usually would. Skipping a few days will not cause any damage, but your symptoms may return with discontinued use. NEVER TAKE MORE AMOUNT OF THE RECOMMENDED.

Epidemiological studies show us that Asian populations that consume various chemical forms of iodine, through the intake of fresh seaweed, have fewer benign pathologies and cancer. The consumption of small and continuous doses of Yodica is a natural contribution equivalent to the use of this element in the Asian diet.

How can I know if I can consume Yodica, and what dose is right for me?

As mentioned earlier, iodine is a natural compound, but there are people with intolerance to this element. Also, its excess generates harmful effects. We recommend that your first-time intake should be consulted with our research team to establish its effective and safe consumption.

Is there a maximum dose per day?

It is recommended not to exceed 3 mg/day. Symptoms of excessive intake are stomach irritation, rash, and subclinical hypothyroidism, which are eliminated at the time of stopping consumption.

How can I know if it is working? How much time should pass before feeling improvement?

Each person's body is different. Most benign pathologies are attenuated from the first 60 days. In the case of its use as an adjuvant in chemotherapy, it is recommended to start with the consumption of Yodica at least one week before starting the treatment and keep it for at least six months.

How is the dose determined?

It is recommended to consult us first to adjust your dose.

How have the beneficial effects of Yodica been tested?

Yodica is the proposal of 25 years of research in our group. We have numerous preclinical and clinical studies, as well as two patents granted by the Mexican Institute of Intellectual Protection. These documents can be found on our website www.yodica.org

If I suffer from a thyroid dysfunction, can I consume Yodica?

If you are currently under the care of a doctor for thyroid disease, you should consult it before starting the use of Yodica.

Is there any interaction of Yodica with medications?

Yodica is a natural formulation and does not antagonist with virtually any medication; however, the first time Yodica consumption should be consulted with our research team.

Is there any side effect from the use of Yodica?

In the general population at the recommended doses, there are no side effects but discontinue use and ask us if you experience: fatigue, palpitations, anxiety, irritability, or increased sweating, as these may be early symptoms of irregular thyroid function. Excessive iodine consumption can cause thyroid disorders such as hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism.

Is the veterinary use of Yodica different from humans?

Our pets are usually mammals like us (dogs, cats, mice, rabbits, hamsters, etc.), and the iodine requirements are similar. Although current foods are excellent and contain most of the trace elements, including iodides, none contain molecular iodine. We offer Yodica as a  formulation that provides enough iodide and molecular iodine for the proper functioning of their organs. Besides, it is an excellent adjuvant in the treatment of benign pathologies or cancer. Ask us!
