One drop of our Iodine Concentrate contains 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 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.
This research also revealed new information regarding many important functions of Iodine in the body. Once known as the universal medicine among medical professionals at the turn of the century, Iodine was set aside in favor of newly developed specialty drugs.
If you think you may be deficient in Iodine, consider this; most of the US population has one or more mercury amalgam fillings in their mouths. A consequence of this is that minute amounts of the heavy metal mercury are continuously being released into the mouth and absorbed into the body. This toxication stimulates a natural detox reaction by the body. Several mechanisms are utilized to remove the mercury. In order for these detoxification mechanisms to work properly, numerous essential minerals are utilized. Iodine, Zinc, Sulfur, Selenium, and Silica stimulate the excretion of heavy metals including mercury. Iodine is at the top of the list when it comes to mercury removal.
Unfortunately, the average persons daily intake of Iodine is not high enough to keep them mercury free even when not exposed to excessive levels. Add on the exposure of mercury from vaccinations, smoking, etc., and you have the potential for serious heavy metal toxicity. This toxicity can manifest itself in many ways causing problems that would not normally be attributed to high levels of mercury.
Iodine helps to improve:
Renaud’s syndrome (numb finger tips)
Sensitivity to cold
In addition to mercury toxicity, you naturally have a major deficiency in the essential mineral Iodine if you are getting at or below the outdated RDA. Additionally, fluoride is an antagonistic element to Iodine, meaning it will impede the absorption of Iodine. Many of us are forced to drink fluoridated water and also brush our teeth with fluoride. Could an Iodine deficiency be related in some way to the current epidemic of hypothyroidism, breast, and prostate cancers? The protective function of Iodine in these tissues has not been described, but the fact that these tissues when healthy are replete with Iodine, and when diseased have little or no Iodine, leads one to think there is more than a casual link.
Do something good for yourself today and make sure you get adequate Iodine and maintain an ample intake of all the essential minerals.
