The human body needs iodine in order to produce thyroid hormones and to support normal thyroid function. The thyroid is a vitally important hormonal gland that is crucially involved in the metabolism, growth and maturation of the human body.
Thyroid hormones regulate not only the metabolism, but also heart and digestive function, brain development, muscular control and the maintenance of bone. The thyroid gland produces several important hormones including thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3), which are both made up of molecules of tyrosine and iodine. In order to function properly, the thyroid needs good levels of iodine.
Throughout our entire life, iodine contributes to our cognitive function and to the functioning of our nervous system. Iodine is also necessary to maintain the health of our skin.
Iodine Tincture is a pleasant tasting liquid formula which allows flexible dosing.
