The trace element essential for life
WHAT IS IODINE?
Iodine is an integral and essential part of healthy DNA integrity (both developmentally and throughout life), immunity, metabolic balance, endocrine function and cardiovascular health. It has been suggested that many people are Iodine deficient. The thyroid contains the most amount of iodine but it is also in all your cells and other body areas such as salivary glands, cerebrospinal fluid, brain, breasts.
WHY NASCENT IODINE? THE TECHNICAL STUFF
Nascent Iodine is a form of iodine that can be ingested into the body and it exists in an atomic form instead of a molecular form. It has an incomplete number of electrons and is paramagnetic – this means it can hold its ‘charged’ state until diluted in water and consumed. It then gradually loses energy over a 2-3hr time span. During this period the body is unable to distinguish between Nascent Iodine and the iodine naturally utilised by the thyroid and it is easily absorbed.
BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY…..
This is what makes Nascent Iodine the best form of iodine supplementation available!
