Our modern diets are often too low in iodine and iodine supplementation can be helpful in cases of deficiency.
Traditionally, the importance of iodine to the biological function of the body was focused on iodine’s role in the nourishment of the thyroid gland, particularly for the production of T3 and T4 hormones and the regulation of metabolism. However, as the understanding of this nutrient has progressed, we come to understand that the role of iodine in the body far surpasses what most thought, and is not only necessary for overall health, but a crucial component of the detoxification process.
All the cells in your body contain and make use of iodine. It is concentrated in the glandular system of your body, with your thyroid containing the highest amount compared to any other organ. Significant amounts are also stockpiled in numerous other areas of the body including the salivary glands, cerebrospinal fluid and the brain, gastric mucosa, choroid plexus, breasts, and ovaries. It is particularly important for thyroids hormone production which helps regulate the metabolism.
Nascent Iodine is Iodine it an atomic form – this is different to other forms of iodine which occur at a molecular level. Nascent Iodine is easily used by the body as after digestion it recognizes the nascent iodine as the same type of iodine the thyroid uses so it is absorbed into the body in the same way natural iodine produced by the body.
This nascent iodine is in a base of Demeter certified biodynamic grape alcohol. The brand is Enviromedica.
30ml contains approximately 600 drops. Each drop contains 400mcg of iodine.
-Nascent iodine is affected by other nutrients, so it is important to take it by itself.
-Frequent small doses are more effective than larger amounts at less frequent intervals.
-So, take it in a glass of water, on an empty stomach 30 minutes before or 1 hour after meals, medications and/or supplements.
-It is best taken first thing in the morning, before lunch and then again before 3pm. Taking it after 3pm could be too stimulating and keep you awake at night.
-It's important to build up gradually to minimise detoxification symptoms. Start with 1 drop before breakfast for the first week.
-If you have detox reactions from one drop, reduce to 1 drop placed on the skin of the abdomen or inner thigh.
-Another way of using it is painting it on your skin once a day after your shower. The abdomen or inside of the thigh are good places. Use a different place each day.
-Increase by 1 drop per week till you get to a maintenance dose of 6-8 drops per week, or whatever has been recommended by your health practitioner.
-If you go to a higher dose and then want to reduce back to a maintenance dose (or if you want to stop taking it), this must also be done one drop at a time.
