Supports Thyroid and Immune Structure and Function*
Recommendations: 1 capsule daily with food.
Iodine is one of the most important minerals required for healthy
cellular and complete metabolic function. There is no life without iodine
and it has been estimated that the entire population is deficient in iodine.
For thyroid support and to protect against forming of a goiter, only small
amounts of iodine are required. But today, doctors have found that all
tissues of the body require iodine. The breasts, ovaries, uterus and
prostate tissue require large quantities of iodine. In the early 1900s Dr.
Szent-Györgyi, the discoverer of vitamin C, was reported to have said that
they did not know what iodine did in medical terms but it did everything
good and was used for almost all health conditions. It is also reported that
he himself ingested 1,000 mgs a day of iodine. The quality of health of
Japanese women is far superior to women in the United States. It has been
estimated that Japanese women ingest 12.5 mgs of iodine daily. On the island
of Okinawa there are a higher percentage of people over 100 than anywhere
else in the world. It has been reported that they ingest, through their
diet, 80 to 200 mgs of iodine daily. Could iodine be the missing link to
good health? According to several holistic physicians, the answer would be
yes. The book by Dr. David Brownstein, Iodine, Why You Need It and Why You
Can’t Live Without It, says it all.*
“Iodine is the most misunderstood nutrient. After 12 years of practicing
medicine, I can say that it is impossible to achieve your optimal health if
you do not have adequate iodine levels. I have yet to see any item that is
more important to promoting health or optimizing the function of the immune
system than iodine.”
