The thyroid gland (which is located in the front of the neck) requires iodine for the production of the thyroid hormones T4 and T3. These hormones stimulate vital processes in every part of the body, and have a major impact on growth, the use of energy and oxygen, heat production, the regulation of metabolism, fertility, immune regulation in the intestine, and the use of vitamins, proteins, carbohydrates, fats, electrolytes and water.
Over the years, many health professionals have recommended the restriction of sodium from the diet in an attempt to reduce hypertension and cardiovascular disease. This restriction has led to a decline in iodine intake, since most salt on the market is “iodized salt,” which is salt with added iodine. In addition, there are various brands of salt available today that are not enriched with iodine, which can also lead to an iodine deficiency.
Breast tissue, like the thyroid gland, has a high concentration of iodine. Iodine Synergy™ helps stimulate the production of enzymes in the breast tissue, as enzymes found in breast tissue reacting with iodine have been shown to exert powerful antioxidant protection. Iodine has a similar effect on prostate health as well.
