For decades, Americans have been told to avoid table
salt. But when iodized table salt is reduced, people can unknowingly
lower their iodine intake to suboptimal levels. Analyses from the
National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) show that
urinary iodine levels have plummeted since the 1970s. The good news is
that you can avoid iodized table salt without sacrificing the health
benefits of iodine. Sea-Iodine is a low-cost proprietary formula that
health-conscious individuals can take each day to support optimal iodine
levels. Using natural ingredients harvested from a blend of organic
marine algae, Sea-Iodine brings you the health of the sea while avoiding
the dangers of excessive salt intake. The algae found in Sea-Iodine
provide you with over 667% of the Recommended Daily Value of natural
iodine. Iodine is a health-promoting trace element essential for life.
Its primary biological role lies in the production of the thyroid
hormones triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4). T4 and T3 contain
four and three atoms of iodine per molecule, respectively.
The thyroid gland actively absorbs iodide from the
blood to make and release these hormones into the blood. Iodine happens
to be found abundantly in sea vegetables and plants. In areas where no
marine foods are eaten, people have lower iodine levels. For this
reason, US commercial salt makers have long added iodine to deliver this
key ingredient to your diet. However, we now know the concerns
associated with eating too much table salt, which resurrects the dilemma
of where to get healthy sources of iodine. Ironically, health-conscious
people are often the most likely to develop low iodine levels. One
reason is that athletes and people engaged in heavy physical effort
deplete their natural stores of this trace mineral through perspiration.
Vegetarians also have a substantially greater likelihood of low levels
of iodine than carnivorous people, since foods of plant origin are less
rich in iodine than animal-derived foods. One study demonstrated iodine
deficiency in 25% of vegetarians and an incredible 80% of vegans. For
those who would like the convenience and economy of taking vitamin D
along with their Sea-Iodine all in one pill, Life Extension also offers
Vitamin D3 with Sea-Iodine.
