Mineral of the Week: Iodine

Some people call Iodine 'The Metabolizer'. This mineral is necessary for our metabolism and thyroid function. Human's are unable to make this mineral so we must get it from dietary choices or supplementation. A few key points to note:

  • Iodine is one of the most vital of the biochemical elements

  • This mineral is adverseley affected by both low and high pH levels.

  • This is one of the first elements consumed by misuse of mental processes.

  • It is rarely foundi n cooked and processed food.

  • Insufficient iodine in the thyroid causes the gland to become overheated, irritated and goiterous.

  • Seaweed is an excellent source of Iodine.

  • In 1915, 90% of Americans were found to be iodine deficient!

  • Hypoglycemic people are often iodine deficient.

  • Liquid iodine can be applied to the soles of the feet and the body will uptake what it needs.

  • Metabolism is increased by iodine.

  • Foods that block the uptake of iodine include: brussels sprouts, cabbage, califlower, kale, spinach, peaches and pears.

Iodine supplementation is often recommended to boost the levels of Iodine in the body. Need recommendations? We've got you covered - just let us know!
