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 Lite+ contains a blend of 4 Seagreens® wild seaweeds, providing typically 150 micrograms of natural iodine in a single capsule. The jar lasts for 3 months at one capsule per day.
Iodine Lite+ has been developed specifically for children or where a lower daily iodine intake is required.
These capsules slide open so that the content can also be taken in a juice or smoothie.
Uniquely, Seagreens® products contain no additives whatsoever and all capsules are 'Trufilled' which means that they always deliver the stated amounts per capsule.
All Seagreens® seaweed is independently monitored and free from allergens and harmful contaminants, its composition carefully studied over the past 20 years. Seagreens monitors the levels of iodine in every batch so that with Seagreens you know what you are eating.
2014 INDEPENDENT RESEARCH STUDY
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.
The Seagreens® capsules have the added benefit of being Iodine '+'.
The 'plus' is that Seagreens naturally contains all the other micronutrients needed for the proper transport and metabolism of iodine including selenium, tyrosine, zinc, copper, vitamins A, B2, B3, B6 and C.
This may be more suitable for iodine supplementation in children, pregnancy and in a wide range of nutrition-based therapeutic protocols.
