Iodine is a trace mineral that his crucial to the body’s overall health. This means that although it is essential that you get iodine from the diet‚ only a small (trace) amount is necessary for proper functioning. i-Throid™ delivers the optimal amount of elemental iodine in a vegetable capsule for easy ingestion‚ optimal bioavailablity and rapid release.
i-Throid® is a superior iodine formulation created to enhance thyroid treatment and offer long-term, consistent results.
i-Throid contains the ideal balance of iodide and free elemental iodine which is highly absorbable and binds to tyrosine to produce thyroid hormones.
i-Throid works synergistically with Nature-Throid® and a-Drenal to offer a well-rounded, highly effective thyroid treatment protocol.
What is Iodine?
In the body‚ iodine’s primary responsibility is to bind with tyrosine in order to create thyroid hormones. Although it is best known for this role‚ it is involved in other important processes as well. For example‚ iodine is needed for cells to convert food into energy.
The body cannot make iodine‚ so it is essential that you get enough of this trace mineral through your diet. Although it is found in many foods‚ such as cheese‚ yogurt‚ shellfish and seaweed‚ many Americans are deficient in iodine. The fact of the matter is‚ if you don’t have enough iodine in your body‚ you won’t be able to make enough thyroid hormones. If the deficiency is left untreated‚ this will eventually lead to an enlarged thyroid‚ which presents itself as a goiter.
Prior to 1920‚ iodine deficiency was common in northern states. It is for this reason that northern American states and most of Canada was referred to as the “goiter belt.” Today‚ it is estimated that as much as 40 percent of the population may be deficient in iodine.
If you are deficient‚ it can be difficult to determine. Iodine deficiency is diagnosed across populations‚ not specific to individuals. It’s done by measuring the amounts of iodine in urine samples across a specific population. Anything under the median level is considered a deficiency.
