Organic, Whole-Food Iodine from Nutritious Seaweed
Iodine is an essential, trace element found naturally in seafood, dairy products, and eggs. It helps support normal thyroid function, energy metabolism, and neurological health. Iodine is an essential component of the thyroid hormones thyroxine and triiodothyronine. Thyroid hormones regulate many important biochemical reactions, including protein synthesis and enzymatic activity, and are critical determinants of metabolic activity.
Iodine concentration in the soil can vary by region. In regions of the world where iodine-deficiency in the soil is common, the iodine content of crops grown in that region also tend to be low, which increases risk of iodine deficiency. Oral supplementation of iodine can minimize deficiency and deficiency-related health conditions.
