i-Throid is an inorganic, non-radioactive form of iodine. Iodine is the safest of all trace minerals and studies have shown it may be necessary for the production of every hormone in the body and for proper immune system function. Every cell utilizes iodine. It is concentrated in the thyroid gland, salivary glands, cerebrospinal fluid, brain, gastric mucosa, breasts and ciliary body of the eye. Because different tissues concentrate different forms of iodine, it is essential to use a supplement that contains both iodide and iodine (i.e. the prostate gland concentrates iodine, but the thyroid gland concentrates iodide). Using i-Throid could yield maximum benefits, providing both iodide and iodine for utilization. Every hormone receptor site in the body requires iodine. Iodine causes apoptosis (death) of breast cancer cells, and helps to reduce cysts in the breasts and ovaries caused by estrogen.
i-Throid is a special combination of iodide and iodine which helps to saturate the tissues of the body with sufficient levels of iodine. It has been formulated to replenish cells devoid of adequate amounts of iodine. Iodine is a mineral essential to bodily maintenance; amounts of iodine can be found in every single cell throughout our bodies. An iodine deficiency may cause feelings of fatigue, irregular body temperatures, chills and hot flashes, and in some cases, hypo- or hyperthyroidism.
Traces of iodine are most prominent within the thyroid gland, the breast, prostate, and in the uterus and ovaries in women. Scientific studies conclude that a deficiency in iodine could be directly related to increases in births resulting in mental retardation, and heightened cases of infertility in both men and women. In addition to promoting reproductive health, i-Throid is acknowledged to greatly decrease radiation poisoning due to nuclear fallout, cancer treatment, etc.
