THE UNIVERSAL NUTRIENT
Due to the recent nuclear disaster at the Fukushima power plant in Japan, more people are aware of iodine than ever before. High-dose iodine supplements are used to prevent radioactive iodine from permanently damaging the thyroid gland.
But iodine is not just an emergency nutrient to be taken in high doses for short periods of time by victims of nuclear fallout. It is an essential mineral needed in small amounts on a daily basis by everybody.
What does iodine do?
Iodine has been recognized for its role in supporting thyroid health for years. But as the understanding of this nutrient has progressed, it’s becoming clear that its role in health far surpasses what was previously thought. Found in every single cell of the body, iodine:
- Is a potent nutrient that protects the thyroid from free radical attack
- Influences how many calories you burn and how much energy you feel
- Is needed for optimal functioning of the immune system
- Supports the health of hormone-sensitive tissues, such as breasts, ovaries, and prostate
- Aids in the detoxification of pervasive industrial chemicals such as bromine, fluoride, chlorine, and perchlorate
- Assists in supporting an alkaline body pH
What are the symptoms of iodine deficiency?
- Unusual fatigue
- Stubborn weight gain
- Irregular bowel movements
- Lifeless skin
- Occasional aches and stiffness
- Bouts of blue mood
- And more…
Why is iodine deficiency so common?
1. Iodized salt only provides enough iodine to prevent overt deficiency — not enough to supply optimal levels to the body.
2. Bioavailablity research indicates only 10 percent of iodine ingested is actually absorbed.
3. Many Americans now follow low-salt diets that provide very little iodine.
4. In the 1980s, the use of iodine as a dough conditioner in baked goods was replaced with bromine — a toxic substance that interferes with iodine absorption.
5. Unlike coastal soil, soil that is inland or in mountainous areas is frequently iodine-poor.
6. Modern farming techniques have depleted the soil of what little iodine it naturally contains.
7. Diets high in goitrogens — such as soybeans, cruciferous vegetables, millet and peanuts — may block iodine utilization.
8. Many widely used industrial chemicals — including bromide, fluoride, and chlorine — are similar enough in structure to iodine that they block its absorption by the body.
What is Nascent Iodine?
Nascent iodine is formed when the iodine molecule is broken down to produce charged atoms of this essential element. The newly liberated atoms are paramagnetic. What does this mean? Well, it means that it can hold an electromagnetic charge. While this all might sound a little like a flashback to chemistry class, the most important thing to understand is that Nascent Iodine has a huge energy release when consumed. This “charged” state is held by the atom until diluted in water and consumed, whereby it gradually loses energy over a 2-3 hour time span.
How soon will I feel the effect?
Many users have noticed additional energy on the first day after taking Nascent Iodine. If you already suffer from an iodine deficiency, you are most likely to notice the effect sooner.
Why choose Nascent Iodine?
- Atomic — not molecular
Atomic iodine is used more efficiently by the body than molecular iodine, which has to be broken down into its constituent atoms before it can be absorbed.
- Effortlessly absorbed
Because it is in an atomic, body-ready state, Nascent Iodine is effortlessly absorbed.
- Electromagnetically charged
When the molecular bonds of iodine are broken to make Nascent Iodine, a huge amount of energy is released, and the free atoms retain an electromagnetic charge.
- Painstakingly manufactured
Unlike imitation products, Nascent Iodine is manufactured according to exacting technical specifications to ensure the quality and efficacy of the finished product.
