Should I Take Iodine Supplements With Coffee And Vinegar?

by Snoopy Woodstock
(Midwest, US)

Snoopy's Question:

I've been drinking one cup of coffee a day, in order to take iodine. It is supposed to be taken with some sort of acidic liquid and the company I buy it from says to take it in vinegar in water with something sweet like honey but I can't handle the taste.

I read somewhere on line a woman took hers with coffee; it's acidic but not vinegar. I have been wondering if I should stop drinking the coffee altogether and buy kelp, but the only way I can find kelp is in pill form or buy it dried from Ireland.

I live in the US. I've been wondering if I should supplement anything anymore with a pill or drops, so would you buy the kelp and get iodine that way, possibly in a smoothie?

Any ideas/recommendations?

Andrew's Answer:


I'm afraid that no matter what you're taking it with, coffee is not a healthy thing to consume.

It is a stimulant that will wear you down.

Vinegar is a water-diluted form of acetic acid, which you will find on a chemist's shelf with a skull and crossbones on it. It's another thing that's worth avoiding.

If you've been tested as iodine deficient, then I'd suggest you avoid the kelp, which, like most seaweeds, is contaminated with arsenic and other heavy metals.

This company sells a seaweed-free iodine tablet.
