Iodine – The Second Most Important Mineral for Our Health

By Dr. Bob McCauley

  • Feeds the Thyroid
  • Activates the Endocrine System
  • Necessary for Metabolism
  • Helps Prevent Iodine
  • Every Drop of Blood Goes Through
  • Not Found in Many Foods
  • Fluoride Interferes with Iodine
  • Balance Hormones in the Body
  • Iodine was Removed from our Diet in 1970

Iodine is critical to human, yet it is one of the most difficult minerals to find in foods.  Iodine is necessary for thyroid function and is a component of the hormone thyroxin (T4), iodinewhich regulates metabolism of the body. When you feed the thyroid this will activate the entire endocrine system – our glands – helping to bring the body into balance.  This results in internal lubrication as the pituitary gland and other glands begin to work properly.  Iodine also used in functions of immunity, white blood cell chemistry, speech, mental acuity, and personality traits. Iodine helps maintain hair, skin, teeth and nails. It may be helpful in synthesis of cholesterol and protein.

Iodine found in Brown Seaweed Extract helps protect against thyroid problems due to radiation exposure.  No other food in the world contains sa significant amounts of iodine as Brown Seaweed Extract (kelp).  You can also take Angstrom Iodine for your thyroid.

FluorideIodine_periodic-table-similar interferes with the uptake of Iodine into the body, as does Chlorine and Bromine.  For instance, copper competes with zinc.  Fluoride, which is not required by the body, competes with iodine because they share the same electron valence number (7).[i] This is a contributing reason why obesity has been on the rise in the general population since 1960. It has gone from 12% in 1960 to 35% in 2010.[ii]  Without iodine, the thyroid gland does not function properly and the body’s natural metabolism malfunctions, which can result in excessive weight loss or gain, even obesity.

Iodine is also the main natural disinfection agent in our body. Every 15 minutes every drop of our blood travels through our thyroid.  Iodine is the mineral that is missing from our diet and because of this it has led to more health problems than any other mineral deficiency such as obesity.

Soy contains goitrogens, which block the synthesis of thyroid hormones and disrupt the assimilation of iodine.  Without iodine, the thyroid cannot regulate the body’s metabolism, which can lead to obesity, or the opposite.  Consuming fluoride will also interfere with the uptake of iodine, and consequently our metabolism.
