Seagreens natural wholefood Iodine+ 60 Capsules
Seagreens natural wholefood Iodine+ 60 Capsules: 2 Months Supply
There is no better natural iodine supplement than Seagreens Iodine+ capsules. Each capsule contains 350µg naturally occurring iodine (twice the RDA), in a whole food form.
Whats more, Seagreens Iodine+ capsules also provide a comprehensive range of vitamins, minerals and trace elements, all synergistically combined in their natural state, easily absorbed by your body.
Why is it called Iodine Plus?
The + is that Seagreens® is also naturally rich in all the minerals and micronutrients needed for the proper transport and metabolism of iodine including selenium, tyrosine, zinc, copper, vitamins A, B2, B3, B6 and C. This is because the Seagreens® seaweed is an outstandingly balanced whole food.
One vegan capsule provides about 350µg of naturally chelated iodine (twice the RDA) plus the full micronutrient balance for healthy metabolism in a whole food with nothing added or extracted.
In Seagreens® Ascophyllum nodosum ‘kelp’ the organic iodine is easily absorbed, stable, naturally chelated and colloidal. As most iodine is from dairy and meat, this is ideal in vegan, vegetarian, allergy and intolerance diets. It helps regulate thyroid and hormones, disperse toxic substances, metabolise other nutrients and transport them to the cells.
The whole body and nervous system needs iodine, not just the thyroid, especially under stress and women more than men - any excess will simply be eliminated.
Why is Seagreens® iodine so important?
In Seagreens® the iodine is naturally bound to protein ions, so that as it travels through the body it remains stable and can be unbound¹ and used as and when the body has need of it. Iodine is one of the most important elements and a vital food for the thyroid gland, where most of our body's iodine is stored. The thyroid in turn regulates our hormone system, which controls all the key biological functions.
Dietary iodine deficiency
Iodine deficiency may be more widespread than is currently realised because over-used soils and new artificial growing mediums may be deficient in the micronutrients like iodine. Many people, suffer from hypo- (underactive) or hyper- (overactive) thyroid, both of which require a proper nutritional balance.
There is no single (or sure) diagnostic test, symptoms can vary widely, and diagnosis is difficult even for experienced clinicians.
Especially in mild cases, patients may go for years without diagnosis. In exceptional circumstances, the thyroid may be incapacitated, or cancerous in which case it may be removed.
In such cases additional iodine is normally inappropriate, but otherwise the additional iodine can actually help restore the thyroid function. There is no universal agreement on a maximum safe daily intake.
In the last 50 years, runner beans have lost 100% of their sodium, watercress 90% its copper, broccoli 75% its calcium. Levels of other important minerals including magnesium, iron, phosphorous and potassium have also plummeted² - Daily Mail, March 2001
Appropriate levels of intake
Main iodine sources in European diets are dairy products, meat and eggs, so iodine is especially important for vegans and vegetarians. Goitrogens in vegetables of the cabbage family may also reduce absorption of iodine. Surveys of British adults show mean daily intakes of about 200µg per person per day from a healthy¹ diet, less for women, and inadequate average intakes of about 80µg per day in vegans.

A pure, natural, assimilable source of Iodine
Iodine is one of the most important elements and a vital food for the thyroid gland, where most of our body's iodine is stored. The thyroid in turn regulates our hormone system, which controls all the key biological functions.
Thyroid hormones, with iodine as an essential ingredient, control normal growth and development, and many other functions including immunity and fertility. Thyroxine and triiodothyromine are necessary for metabolic rate, cellular metabolism, and the integrity of connective tissue.
During the first 3 months of pregnancy iodine is particularly important to the fetus for development of the nervous system.
