Prolamine Iodine Description

Suggested use: 3-6/day

Prolamine Iodine contains 3 mg of Iodine and 20 mg of Calcium for healthy iodine levels. Iodine is a trace element and an essential micronutrient. Almost 80 percent of the body’s iodine content resides in the thyroid gland where its sole function is to form part of the two important thyroid hormones: thyroxine and triiodothyronine. These hormones influence the rate of metabolism and are necessary for regulation of normal growth and development. During our entire lifetime, we only require a little more than a teaspoonful of iodine, but since the body does not store iodine, we need to consume it regularly to support consistent thyroid hormone production. The body is able to absorb iodine in both the organic and inorganic state, both readily available in a normal, well-balanced diet. Iodine is found in iodized salt, water, oysters, fish, beef, pork, eggs, bread, dairy products, apples, cranberries, and many vegetables. As with many other nutrients, young adults and pregnant or lactating women may require somewhat greater iodine intake to meet their unique nutritional needs.

How Prolamine Iodine keeps you healthy:

  • Boosts iodine levels Failure to eat a well-balanced diet can result in loss of essential vitamins, minerals, and other vital nutrients, including iodine. Prolamine Iodine contains 3 mg of iodine per tablet to help your body maintain a healthy iodine level. Prolamine Iodine is most beneficial when used as a short-term mechanism to support iodine levels. In the long run, a well-balanced diet is the best way to maintain healthy levels of all nutrients, including iodine.

  • Supports normal growth and development The sole purpose for iodine in the body is to facilitate formation of thyroxine and triiodothyronine. These hormones cannot be formed without it. Triiodothyronine is the hormone intimately involved in the regulation of normal growth and development, and it is produced from the metabolism of thyroxine, which contains four atoms of iodine per molecule. These two hormones help keep young bodies and minds growing and developing at a healthy rate.

  • Supports a healthy metabolic rate The thyroid hormones boost the rate at which the body’s cells use oxygen and organic molecules to produce energy and heat. They are directly and indirectly involved with the growth and maintenance of the skeletal and nervous systems. The thyroid hormones stimulate different types of cells to perform their specific functions, such as protein synthesis, water balance, and many other physiological processes. Without iodine, this would not be possible.

Also, Prolamine Iodine is used for hyper/hypothyroidism, diminished secretions, menopausal/hot flash symptoms, PMS, breast tenderness, lumpiness and fibrocystic breasts and iodine therapy. Hot flashes for menopausal women are one of the most popular uses of this product. Higher doses of iodine are needed with fibrocystic breasts. Sufficient iodine appears to play a major role in protection against breast cancer. When giving high doses of iodine consider adding Magnesium Lactate at 4-6 capsules/day. Patients with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis will not tolerate higher doses of iodine and must be worked with differently.

Caution: Individuals sensitive to iodine should not consume this product.
