Why Iodine 12.5?
The thyroid gland, located in the neck (below the Adams apple) produces hormones that regulate cell metabolism. Thyroid hormones regulate metabolism within every cell of the body. Optimal balance of thyroid hormone production is required to help numerous body functions including: the body's metabolic rate, growth and development, reproduction, hormone production, brain function, as well as psychological and cardiovascular health.
Iodine 12.5 contains the ideal balance of iodide and free elemental iodine which is highly absorbable and binds with tyrosine to produce thyroid hormones. Iodine is important for the development and proper function of the thyroid. In addition to supporting the thyroid, research is showing that iodine acts as an antioxidant supporting healthy thyroid and protecting a variety of tissues including mammary tissue, eyes, and the gastrointestinal lining. It also plays a significant role in maintaining breast health as well as adrenal and immune function.
How does Iodine 12.5 aid your health?
Riordan Clinic's Iodine 12.5 mg is a superior iodine formulation created to enhance thyroid treatment and can offer long-term, consistent results. It helps to metabolize fats, promotes growth, and regulates the production of energy. It is absorbed in the intestinal tract and is transported through the bloodstream to the thyroid were it becomes iodized and converted into thyroxin. It also acts as an antioxidant by donating electrons and neutralizing oxygen free radicals. Iodine is essential for absorption of carbohydrates, hair, mental health, nails, proper balance of cholesterol, proper metabolism, skin, speech, teeth, the conversion of carotene to vitamin A, and the synthesis of protein by ribosomes.
"The first natural line of defense for mild cases of hypothyroidism is increased exercise and adding iodine sources to your diet." Laurie Roth-Donnell, "Foods to Naturally Support Thyroid Health" Health Hunters Newsletter (May 2012)
