Product Description - Eidon Ionic Minerals Iodine 10 ppm 18 fl. oz.
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.
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 symptoms as an underactive thyroid gland (hypothyroidism). The diagnosis of iodine deficiency is based on tests indicating low levels of iodine and thyroid hormones or a high level of thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) or on the presence of a goiter (only in adults).
About the concentrate: One drop is 75% of the US RDA. However, Iodine has been maligned 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.

"Iodine: The Universal Nutrient," Guy E. Abraham, M.D. In textbooks of medicine, endocrinology and thyroidology, the essential element iodine is mentioned only in connection with the most severe forms of deficiency of this nutrient: cretinism, iodine-deficiency induced goiter and hypothyroidism. Many physicians would be surprised to learn that more than a hundred years ago, iodine was called "The Universal Medicine," and was used in several clinical conditions.
