The thyroid gland requires iodine to produce the thyroid hormones T4 and T3. These hormones stimulate vital processes in every part of the body, and have a major impact on growth, the use of energy and oxygen, heat production, the regulation of metabolism, fertility, immune regulation in the intestine, and the use of vitamins, proteins, carbohydrates, fats, electrolytes and water.
Along with iodine, the conversion of the thyroid hormone T4 into T3 requires an enzyme that is dependent on the mineral selenium. Taking high doses of iodine long-term increase the need for selenium, which is why Iodine Protect™ includes both of these minerals in this formula.
Over the years, many health professionals have recommended restricting sodium from the diet to try and reduce hypertension and cardiovascular disease. This restriction has led to a decline in iodine intake, since most salt on the market is “iodized salt,” which is salt with added iodine. In addition, there are various types of salt available, including sea salt and Himalayan salt, that are not enriched with iodine which can also lead to an iodine deficiency.
Good sources of dietary iodine include iodized salt, seafood, kelp, seaweed, asparagus, spinach and Swiss chard. However, the body does not store iodine for long periods of time, so regular intake through diet, as well as additional supplementation, is important.
Breast and Prostate
Breast tissue, like the thyroid gland, has a high concentration of iodine. Iodine Protect™ helps stimulate the production of enzymes in the breast tissue, as enzymes found in breast tissue reacting with iodine have been shown to exert powerful antioxidant protection. Iodine has a similar effect on prostate health as well.
As a dietary supplement, take one capsule per day, or as directed by your healthcare practitioner. Consult your health care practitioner before use.
