Benefits of Liposomal Liquid Iodine
- Supports the hormones that keep the thyroid balanced.
- Liposomes allow for excellent absorption of the potassium iodide in a highly bioavailable form to increase delivery into the blood stream.
- Potassium iodide supports a reduced risk of thyroid cancer when given before or after radiation exposure.
- May support a reduction in goiter size when iodine deficiency has been diagnosed.
- Iodine is a necessary non-metallic element that is required by humans for optimal health and well-being.
- Refreshing mint flavored liquid with an easy to use dropper.
- Gluten free.
Iodine is a non-metallic trace element that is usually found in seafood, animal, and other plant foods. Due to the poor nutritional content of our modern day soils, iodine is often fortified into the diet such as in iodized table salt. Those who are on a low sodium diet may not get enough iodine in their diets which may lead to other health conditions such as poor thyroid function.
Iodine helps to support the thyroid regulating hormone (TSH) or thyrotropin, and helps to protect the body from hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. TSH increases the thyroidal uptake of iodine as well as the synthesis and release of T3 and T4. When iodine levels are low, the TSH levels remain elevated, which leads to goiter, and thyroid gland enlargement, which is the body’s way of trying to trap iodine and produce thyroid hormones. 1,2
Iodine is often used to support the following:
- Loosening up airways by breaking apart the mucus from conditions such as (asthma, chronic bronchitis, emphysema).
- Treatment before or after radiation exposure in an emergency, to prevent thyroid cancer.
- Deficiencies in iodine and poor thyroid function.
- Treatment of skin diseases causes by a fungus (cutaneous sporotrichosis).
- Treating fibrocystic breast disease.
- Iodine is applied to the skin to kill germs, prevent soreness inside the mouth (mucositis) caused by chemotherapy, and treat diabetic ulcers.
- Iodine is used for water purification.
Liposomes, which use a form of nanotechnology science use the generalized nature of the Liposomes themselves to increase the efficacy, bioavailability, absorption, and delivery of these certain entrapped dietary and nutritional supplements. This generalized nature and makeup of Liposomes, being composed of phospholipids, complement the natural lining of nearly every cell within the human body. This creates a natural bond or affinity for the Liposomes to deliver their onboard “payload” to the cells. The quality of raw Lipid used in the preparation and manufacturing of the Liposomes precisely co-relates to this natural congruency between the Liposomes and the cells of the human body.
