Americans have long been told to steer clear of table salt. Unfortunately however, when table salt intake is reduced, often times iodine levels fall below the ideal range. Research from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) demonstrates that iodine levels from urine have declined since the 1970s.
The plus side is that you can evade iodized table salt without giving up the health advantages of iodine. Sea-Iodine is an inexpensive exclusive concoction which health informed people can use every day to promote ideal iodine levels. Using assimilated extracts gathered from a mix of seaweeds, Sea-Iodine provides you the health of the sea while dodging the dangers of exorbitant salt intake. The extracts contained in Sea-Iodine are from the waters of Iceland and Nova Scotia, providing you with over 667% of the Recommended Daily Value of natural iodine.
Iodine is a health-supporting trace element necessary for life. Its fundamental organic role lies in the development of the thyroid hormones triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4).1 T4 and T3 contain four and three atoms of iodine per molecule, respectively. The thyroid gland vigorously intakes iodide from the blood to produce and discharge these hormones into the bloodstream.
Iodine is found in large quantities in sea vegetables and plants. In parts of the world where no marine foods are consumed, people generally have reduced iodine levels.2 Because of this, US commercial salt manufacturers have long supplemented iodine to bring this essential mineral to your diet. Nonetheless, we now are aware of the harmful effects linked to consuming an overabundance of table salt, which brings back the problem of where to find healthy sources of iodine.
Paradoxically, health-informed people are typically the most likely to develop low iodine levels.3 One reason for this is that athletes and people involved in physical labor empty their natural stores of this trace mineral through sweat. Vegetarians also have a much larger chance of having low levels of iodine than carnivorous people, because foods of plant origin have a lower iodine content than animal-derived foods. One study showed iodine deficiency in 25% of vegetarians and an astonishing 80% of vegans.4
