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. Insufficient iodine can lead to symptoms such as fatigue, dry skin, increased blood fats, brain fog, bowel irregularity, hoarseness, and delayed reflexes. Iodine is a very effective heavy metal detoxifer of mercury, lead, cadmium, aluminum and bromide.About the concentrate: One drop is 75% of the US RDA. However, Iodine has beenmaligned 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. Our new concentrate addresses this issue and gives you the ability to increase your dose to much higher levels, when necessary, and at a much more affordable price. (See also: Why do you need extra Iodine?)Symptoms of Deficiency:Some of the symptoms of deficiency include; cold hands and feet, no energy, sleeping all the time, brittle hair, unable to concentrate, and heavy periods. When iodine is deficient, the thyroid gland enlarges, forming a goiter, as it attempts to capture more iodine for the production of thyroid hormones. Iodine deficiency causes the same...
It's Not What You Take It's What You Absorb
Iodine is an essential trace element for proper thyroid hormone production.
Eidon Iodine: Plays an important role in immune function, metabolic rate, and energy production and is especially important for those on a low salt diet. Iodine is a potent heavy metal detoxifier and bowel regulator. Iodine is not stored and is rapidly eliminated from the body.
Take the guesswork out of supplements: Eidon uses a proprietary process that transforms pure mineral crystals into a full hydrated, 100% bioavailable liquid ionic supplement.
