Iodine

Iodine95% of Our Population is Deficient in Iodine

Taking Iodine Could Save Your Life

Did you know that an estimated 95% of our population is deficient in Iodine? Do you suffer from lack of energy, headaches, irritability, muscle cramps, hair loss, brittle nails, cold hands and feet or muscle weakness? These are all symptoms of Hypothyroidism associated with low levels of Iodine.

You may not be aware, but 100 years ago Iodine was considered the “Universal Medicine”.

Unfortunately, one bad study in the late 1940′s denounced Iodine and the entire medical community switched to anti-biotics (and we know how well that has turned out).

Now researchers are beginning to see the many benefits Iodine provides the body.

Iodine is utilized by every cell in the human body.  Our white blood cells cannot effectively guard against infection without adequate amounts of Iodine.

The absence of Iodine in our bodies not only is detrimental to our thyroid, but emerging research suggests that low Iodine levels actually can promote cancer, lead to ADD in children due to lack of Iodine in pregnancy and is essential to IQ development for nursing children.

According to medical doctors researching Iodine deficiencies, 12.5 to 150 mg. of Iodine per day are required to normalize Iodine levels in the body.  Our Iodine (with L-Tyrosine for thyroid health) contains 30 mg. per server.

The government RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance) of Iodine for adults is a paltry 150 mcg. (micrograms).  Noted medical doctor Guy Abraham, MD said, “RDA doses of iodine are ineffective in preventing oxidative DNA damage and have not anti-cancer effect in the body.”

Higher intake of Iodine in Japan and Iceland have been positively correlated with dramatically reduced incidences of breast cancer. Conversely, the Great Lakes Basin in the U.S. has the lowest Iodine levels and one of the highest breast cancer rates.

If you are looking to normalize your Iodine levels, start for approximately one month taking 4 a day  of Iodine with L-Tyrosine a day (two in the morning and two in the evening).  After a “loading” period of one month, you can scale it back to one or two capsules a day according to your specific needs.

As always, consult your healthcare practitioner as we all have different needs.  One thing is for sure, most of us are Iodine deficient and we don’t know it.

Dr. David Brownstein MD, author of Iodine: Why You Need It, Why You Can’t Live Without It, states in his book that Iodine is one of the most misunderstood nutrient and suggests through his extensive research that most of the population is grossly deficient in this valuable mineral. He further stated that it is impossible to achieve your optimal health when there is iodine deficiency present.Dr. Brownstein recommends a supplement of 25-50 mg daily.  Add an additional 400 mg of L-Tyrosine, which is a building block for the thyroid hormone controlling our metabolic rate and energy level.Some of you may also be wondering about the long-term effects of the Fukushima nuclear plant explosion. A recent study by the University of South Wales indicates that the radiation from that explosion will begin flowing into our U.S. coastal waters in early 2014 and peak in 2016. Iodine protects your thyroid gland from being harmed and prevents it from absorbing the radioiodine.

If you are noticing fatigue and weight gain, Dr. Brownstein’s research supports the necessity for an effective iodine supplement.

Maybe it’s time to rejuvenate your thyroid – that master of metabolism. When your thyroid is functioning at less that optimum, you can bet that you will feel sluggish, tired and foggy. It is estimated that as high as twenty percent of all adults have hypothyroidism that has not been clinically diagnosed.Sluggish? Tired? Foggy? Iodine May Hold The KeyUnfortunately, due to today’s environmental pollutants, iodine deficiency has become a worldwide epidemic. It’s common knowledge that pollutants cause cancer, but what many don’t know is that these pollutants cause a deficiency that can make us sick.
