Lugol's Iodine Solution 5% 25 ml
Iodine is a trace mineral that occurs naturally in the environment and is essential to the human body. We mostly depend on food to provide the iodine we need. Scientific studies have discovered that if we don't get enough iodine, it can reduce the capability of our organs, and lead to a host of different problems including goiter, muscle pain, reduced alertness, dry mouth, dry skin and even certain types of cancer.
In addition, these studies have found that the stimulation of hormonal activity, control of the body's base metabolic rate, the maintenance of optimal energy levels, the formation of healthy skin, the flushing out of chemical toxins, and a general boosting of the immune system are some of the potential benefits from having good iodine levels and a balanced and healthy thyroid gland.
One of the most important organs in the body that needs iodine for proper functioning is the thyroid gland. An iodine deficiency can prevent tissues in the body from functioning efficiently, and in turn, stop your thyroid gland from producing two of the hormones it needs: thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). Once this happens, thyroid functioning deteriorates quickly. Even though iodine deficiency is not the only reason that hypothyroidism can occur, increasing your intake of this mineral can stimulate the hormonal activity that will help you on the road to becoming your healthiest.
