The Iodine+ Capsules 60
For those with a known Iodine deficiency
Seagreens® wild Ascophyllum nodosum seaweed (Organic)
One capsule per day
Iodine contributes to normal thyroid, nervous system and cognitive function, the normal growth of children, normal energy-yielding metabolism, and the maintenance of normal skin.
Iodine is one of the most important minerals for health - not least for hormone production and regulation, particularly in the thyroid gland which regulates many bodily functions.
Each Iodine+ Capsule contains 100% whole Seagreens® wild Ascophyllum nodosum seaweed, providing typically 350 micrograms of natural iodine in a single capsule. The jar lasts for 2 months at one capsule per day.
These capsules slide open so that the content can also be taken in a juice or smoothie. Seagreens® products contain no additives whatsoever and all capsules are 'Trufilled' which means that they always deliver the stated amounts per capsule.
Independent research at Glasgow University in Scotland, compared Seagreens® wild Ascophyllum to a commonly used source of iodine - potassium iodide.
The study found that although both forms are bioavailable, the potassium iodide peaks and is quickly excreted from the body, whereas the Seagreens iodine is more gradually absorbed - with no adverse effects on thyroid function.
Thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) was normalised across the study group of 50 iodine-insufficient women, whose average age was 25.

Comparison of typical iodine levels
The British Health Food Manufacturers’ Association advises that iodine supplementation should not exceed 500µg per day. We introduced Seagreens® Iodine+ Capsules in 2000 after requests from Vegans and vegetarians for a pure 100% organic quality single daily capsule to provide adequate, properly balanced natural iodine with no manufacturing incipients or other additives.
