Iodine Concentrate 2 oz by Eidon Ionic Minerals
Iodine Concentrate 2 oz
Iodine's primary role is to keep the thyroid gland healthy and manufacturing sufficient thyroxine, a hormone that is needed throughout the body.
About 50 to 60 percent of the body's iodine is stored in the thyroid gland, the rest is distributed throughout the body, especially in ovaries, breast and prostate tissue, muscles, and blood. Iodine plays an important role in many of the body's functions.
Thyroid hormones control proper body metabolism that can influence energy production and body temperature. Thyroid function influences the adrenal glands, reproduction, nerve and muscle function, cellular oxygen use, the health of hair, skin, and bones and the breakdown of fats and proteins.
Women require higher iodine amounts during periods of puberty and pregnancy.
Iodine is a very effective heavy metal detoxifier of mercury, lead, cadmium, aluminum and bromide. And consequently can be depleted by the presence of these toxic heavy metals.
Symptoms of Deficiency:
Some of the symptoms of deficiency include; cold hands and feet, fatigue, sleeping all the time, brittle hair, dry skin, increased blood fats, inability to concentrate, heavy periods, bowel irregularity, hoarseness, and delayed reflexes. When iodine is deficient, the thyroid gland enlarges, forming a goiter.
Iodine deficiency causes the same symptoms as an underactive thyroid gland (hypothyroidism). The diagnosis of iodine deficiency is based on tests indicating low levels of iodine and thyroid hormones or a high level of thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) or on the presence of a goiter (only in adults).
Iodine has been maligned in mainstream medicine over the last 100 years to the degree that the current suggested RDA will barely keep a goiter at bay. According to the latest research, the RDA of 150 micrograms is woefully inadequate. Doses of 5 or more milligrams per day are now being recommended.
