Rediscover The Forgotten Mineral
“Iodine is the most misunderstood nutrient. After 12 years of practicing medicine, I can say that it is impossible to achieve your optimal health if you do not have adequate iodine levels. I have yet to see any item that is more important to promoting health or optimizing the function of the immune system than iodine.”
–David Brownstein, M.D.
Tri-Iodine™ The forgotten Mineral
Iodine is one of the most important minerals required by the body for healthy cellular and complete metabolic function. Breast tissue, the uterus, the ovaries, the thyroid, the brain and the prostate depend on iodine. But typical intake levels for most people are too low. They need Tri-Iodine™.
The benefits of increased iodine intake include:
• Increased Metabolism and Better Weight Management*
• Increased Energy*
• Improved Libido*
• Breast Health*
• Prostate Health*
• Increased Immune Function*
Tri-Iodine contains three beneficial forms of iodine to nourish multiple body systems. Three forms are included because different tissues in the body prefer different forms. For example, your thyroid tissue absorbs iodine best as potassium iodide, while breast tissue takes up iodine in the form of molecular iodine. Additionally, there is evidence that using sodium iodide enhances absorption of the other forms.
Frequently Asked Questions for Tri-Iodine™:
Q. Isn’t iodine supplementation just for preventing goiter?
A. Actually, only a small amount of iodine is really necessary for preventing goiter. But today, doctors have found that all tissues of the body require iodine. The breasts, ovaries, uterus, thyroid, brain and prostate tissue require large quantities of iodine. In the early 1900s Dr. Szent-Györgyi, the discoverer of vitamin C, was reported to have said that they did not know what iodine did in medical terms but it did everything good and was used for almost all health conditions. It is also reported that he himself ingested 1,000 mgs a day of iodine.
Q. Can iodine really make that much of a difference?
A. It has been estimated that Japanese women consume at least 12 mg and up to 80 mg of iodine daily, depending whether they live inland or along the coast with iodine-rich food sources. However, even the lower amount is still much higher than the typical intake in the United States of about 240 mcg (micrograms) per day. On the island of Okinawa there are a higher percentage of people over 100 than anywhere else in the world. It has been reported that they ingest, through their diet, 80 to 200 mgs of iodine daily. Although it’s mostly recognized for its role in the formation of thyroid hormones, many organs in the body utilize iodine. Breast, uterine, prostate, brain, and ovarian tissues in particular have high iodine requirements.
Q. Why not just take one form of iodine?
A. Adding iodine to your regimen can certainly have benefits overall, but these three forms of iodine are more selective for different tissues. For instance, we include molecular iodine because of research that reviewed study results of breast health. It noted that while all forms tested (molecular iodine, sodium iodide and potassium iodide) produced beneficial effects, the best results for breast support were achieved with molecular iodine.*
However, in the case of thyroid health and the creation of thyroid hormones, sodium iodide and potassium iodide are the best form for support.*
