Does PreCardix® contain iodine?

The iodine content of PreCardix® has been analyzed in a laboratory setting and determined to be 40.3mg/kg, or 0.048 mg of iodine in a daily dose of 2 tablets of PreCardix® (the amount of active ingredient per daily dose of PreCardix® is 1,200 mg of shrimp peptide concentrate). 

For reference, the daily recommended intake of iodine for a healthy adult is 150mcg, or 0.15 mg. Therefore, each daily dose of PreCardix® fulfills approximately 1/3rd of the recommended daily intake of iodine in healthy adults. Please discuss with your health care provider if this is an appropriate level of iodine for you, especially if you have any underlying conditions or are taking any medications and/or supplements. 

Always consult with your health care provider before making changes to your blood pressure management plan. PreCardix® does not treat, cure or prevent medical conditions. Measure and monitor blood pressure regularly. Know the signs of heart attack and stroke. Do not take PreCardix® if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, have renal artery stenosis, history of angioneurotic edema or shellfish allergy.
