Iodine + 60caps

£17.69

Seagreens Iodine Capsules 60's: Each capsule contains 100% pure Seagreens human food quality seaweed, which in turn typically contains 350 micrograms of natural iodine. We carefully micronise a single iodine-rich seaweed variety called Ascophyllum nodosum and seal it in a vegetable capsule. We harvest only fresh living plants which then re-grow. Recent research by Glasgow University compared Seagreens Ascophyllum to an artificial form of potassium iodide. The study found that potassium iodide is highly bioavailable and quickly excreted from the body, whereas Seagreens is more gradually available in the body and remains present for longer periods, with subsequent high levels of iodine being excreted from the body (publication in preparation). Essentially, this research is indicating that the body takes what it needs from a slow release natural source, and removes the rest. To preserve the minerals, we do not powder our seaweeds; nor do we overheat them: they are air dried as a raw food. Why is it called Iodine Plus? The + is that Seagreens is also rich in all the minerals and micronutrients needed for the proper transport and metabolism of iodine including selenium, tyrosine, zinc, copper, vitamins A, B2, B3, B6 and C. In contrast, our Food Capsules contain a typical 195 micrograms of iodine per capsule allowing an equivalent daily intake of iodine but with double the balance of all the other nutrients. This may be more suitable in children, pregnancy and in most therapeutic protocols.
