Description

Potassium iodide is a weak salt and easily splits apart in the gut, leav­ing free iodide ions to join together forming I2 Iodine. The selenium in this product works synergistically with iodine to support the nor­mal conversion of T4 into T3, and supplies antioxidant protection to the thyroid gland.

Made with non-GMO ingredients.

Iodine deficiency can be a major contributor to the cause of congenital hypothyroidism and goiter. Congenital hypothyroidism can lead to mental retardation, lower IQ and stunted growth. Symptoms typical of iodine deficiency include cold extremities, fatigue, insomnia, dry eyes, frequent crying (iodine is needed for lachrymation and tearing), weight gain, cracking heels, and palpable tenderness in the sternum. Over the years, sodium restriction, as directed by many health professionals in an attempt to reduce hypertension and cardiovascular disease, has led to a decline in iodine intake. Many brands of salt today are not enriched with iodine. A goiter is often the result of the thyroid gland becoming enlarged in an effort to compensate for a lack of iodine. Currently, 200 million people are affected by goiters.

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, and possibly supplementation, is important.

Thyroid hormones have a major impact on the following functions:
• Growth
• Use of energy and oxygen
• Heat production
• Fertility
• The use of vitamins, proteins, carbohydrates, fats, electrolytes, and water
• Immune regulation in the intestine

Selenium for thyroid health
Up to 40% of T4 is converted to T3 by peripheral organs such as the liver, kidney and spleen. Selenium is needed to convert T4 into T3. T3 is about ten times more active than T4. The 5’-deiodinase enzyme, involved in thyroid hormone conversion, is a selenoprotein dependent on the mineral selenium. Taking high doses of iodine long-term increases the need for selenium. Selenium levels are often low due to depletion by mercury.

Recommended Use: As a dietary supplement take one capsule per day or as directed by your health care practitioner.
