Terry Naturally Tri-Iodine supports Thyroid & Immune structure & function. It provides three beneficial forms of Iodine, an essential trace element.
Iodine is an essential mineral. However, the average intake of iodine in the United States is much lower than in other countries, particularly Japan, whose residents may consume as much as 200 milligrams of iodine daily. Although perhaps most widely recognised for its role in the formation of thyroid hormones, many organs in the body utilize iodine. Breast, uterine, prostate, and ovarian tissues in particular have high iodine requirements. Tri-Iodine combines three different forms of iodine in order to provide complete support for all body tissue types.
A review paper examining results obtained in studies of breast health noted that while all forms tested (molecular iodine, sodium iodide and potassium iodide) produced beneficial effects, the best results for breast support were achieved with molecular iodine.
Iodide Potassium and sodium iodide are the forms of iodine utilized by the thyroid. Iodine is an essential component of thyroid hormones. Supplemental iodide is important for healthy thyroid function.
The word iodine is from the Greek iodes, meaning purple or violet. In its gaseous phase, the element iodine takes on a beautiful pink/purple color, although it is grey when in solid form. In nature, the highest concentrations of iodine (as iodide) are found dissolved in seawater, although some minerals and soils also have iodine. Kelp, a type of seaweed, is able to concentrate iodine and provides a dietary source of this otherwise relatively rare element.
Iodised salt was commonly available in the United States by 1924 and played an important role in reducing the incidence of goiter, especially in Midwestern states. However, experts feel that iodine consumption in present times has declined as many people now avoid the use of salt in their diets.
