Iodine's primary role is to support a healthy thyroid gland by activating the production of thyroxine, a hormone that is needed throughout the body for energy production. 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. Women require higher Iodine amounts during periods of puberty and pregnancy.
Iodine plays an important role in many of the body's functions. It helps to support:
Thyroid hormones, which control proper body metabolism that can influence energy production and body temperature
Thyroid function, which influences the adrenal glands
Healthy reproductive function
Nerve and muscle function
Cellular oxygen use
The breakdown of fats and protein
“Fantastic product. Highly effective and noticeable difference in overall mental clarity and energy. I have a genetic issue with my thyroid whereby my T4 does not convert to T3 at all. My physician highly recommended and encouraged me to take iodine. T3 alone was not giving me "all day mental and physical stamina," however, the combination of T3 and Eidons Iodine concentrate (literally only takes 1-2 drops daily to be effective) continues to get me through even the longest and toughest days. I also take several other products from this brand. I absolutely love all of them thus far. ”
“I like this iodine because it practically does not have that typical unpleasant taste of regular brown iodine. This is a clear liquid, easy to use -- 2-4 drops/day. The price is good too. One bottle will last for a year for both of us.”
“I did not believe their claim that it was not necessary to take high doses and I took 5 drops. I have saturated with Lugols iodine and maintained it for 3 years. If I take a 32mg iodine pill I get no side effects, but 4 drops of Eidon iodine gave me insomnia. I figure I must have retained 1/4mg out of the 32mg pill. I just started taking their potassium to counteract sodium and balance that mineral pair. I also sent in my hair analysis from the form on Eidon website. I intend to balance all my minerals."
