Iodine is a required nutrient - humans are supposed to consume it every day!
However it is not readily available in our food supply any more, because modern agricultural practices have stripped the soil of essential nutrients.
The FDA's recommended daily allowance (RDA) for iodine is 150 mcg/day for adults.
One drop of our Nascent Iodine contains 400 mcg!
Why 400 mcg??
Given that most people are severely iodine deficient, the RDA of 150 mcg is laughably low. This is the bare minimum required to prevent goiter, not the optimal level to support thriving health!!
In fact, one of the world's leading experts on iodine, Dr. Guy A. Abraham, recommends doses around 2 mg and up per day!
Our research shows, thus we tend to agree, that higher doses of iodine can benefit most people most significantly.
For many people, working their way up to a higher dose by taking more frequent, lower doses is more beneficial than mega dosing at once.
We are proud to offer the highest quality Nascent Iodine we have found!
A mind-boggling 95% of Americans are deficient in iodine; considering that the element is required by every hormone receptor in every cell of the body, it's not surprising our culture is ravaged by metabolic disorders like cancer and diabetes.
Lack of iodine is the leading cause of brain damage in childhood--and it is completely preventable through responsible choices that may include supplementation.
Unfortunately, our food supply is no longer sufficient to provide optimal levels of iodine for thrival. Foods that were once decent sources of iodine like shrimp, strawberries, and potatoes are now so contaminated that the poisons outweigh the small benefits you used to get.
Modern farming practices--including the use of pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, insecticides, etc.--strip the soil of iodine. Additionally, we are barraged by a toxic load of chemicals on a daily basis. Goitrogens are substances that interfere with hormone production in the thyroid gland, and they are rampant in our environment.
Every cell in the body uses iodine as a micronutrient! It regulates nutrient uptake and waste expulsion; every hormone receptor requires iodine for proper functioning. Thus, getting enough iodine is foundational to health.
Though there are numerous forms of iodine and many supplements available, they are NOT created equal. Many "iodine" products on the market are actually potassium iodide with a "d", and the body must use energy to break it down into useable components.
The body recognizes nascent iodine as the ideal type of iodine it needs, and no energy is wasted converting it to useable form. Nascent iodine is quickly absorbed and utilized by the body for metabolism and detoxification.
We offer liquid NASCENT IODINE that is immediately available for the body to absorb and utilize for maximum health!
Each 0.5 oz dropper bottle of The Garden of Eden's Nascent Iodine supplement contains 725 drops, over a year's supply when taken at the recommended daily dose of 1-2 drops on the skin! Each drop contains 400 mcg of iodine.
I notice increased energy as soon as I take my daily dose of iodine!

The Importance of Iodine Cannot Be Overstated!
"Iodine stabilizes the heart rhythm, lowers serum cholesterol, lowers blood pressure, and is known to make the blood thinner as well, judging by longer clotting times seen by clinicians.
Iodine is not only good for the cardiovascular system, it is vital. Sufficient iodine is needed for a stable rhythmic heart beat.
Iodine, directly or indirectly, can normalize serum cholesterol levels and normalize blood pressure.
Iodine attaches to insulin receptors and improves glucose metabolism, which is good news for people with diabetes.
Iodine and iodine-rich foods have long been used as a treatment for hypertension and cardiovascular disease; yet, modern randomized studies examining the effects of iodine on cardiovascular disease have not been carried out.”

Maximize Thyroid Function
The thyroid gland at the base of the throat is the metabolism control center. Iodine is foundational to the thyroid's production of the hormones T3 and T4.
Together, these hormones balance the body's temperature, heart rate, metabolism, and growth.
Disturbances in iodine levels can cause hyperthyroidism (overactive hormone production), hypothyroidism (underactive hormone production), and/or goiter.
Goiter, or enlargement of the thyroid gland, is a reversible condition caused by iodine deficiency.
Goiter instance, AKA iodine deficiency, is correlated with instance and mortality of cancers, especially of the stomach. Iodine deficiency is a known cause of breast cancer and is associated with liver and prostrate cancers.
Iodine balances the thyroid gland to homeostasis, thus aligning the endocrine system and body as a whole to create and utilize energy efficiently and maintain thriving health.
There is growing evidence that Americans would have better health and a lower incidence of cancer and fibrocystic disease of the breast if they consumed more iodine. A decrease in iodine intake coupled with an increased consumption of competing halogens, fluoride and bromide, has created an epidemic of iodine deficiency in America.

The Reality of This Toxic World
We are under constant chemical bombardment from our poisoned air, water, food, and pharmaceutical supply, putting more stress on the nutritionally depleted human organism than ever before.
Here are a handful of the toxic culprits that strain and drain health:
BROMINE AND BROMIDES
Bromine is the 35th element on the periodic table. In reacts with all metals to form bromide. Because they are both halogens, bromine competes with iodine receptor cells in the thyroid gland. Ingesting bromide lowers your body's ability to absorb and utilize iodine.
Bromide is found in the pesticide methyl bromide. Under the Montreal Protocol, 160 countries recognized methyl bromide as an ozone-depleting substance, with many countries agreeing to ban it. The EPA passed regulation to end production and importation by 2001, yet 375 metric tons are still legally used each year on US crops (mostly strawberries in northern California).
Potassium bromate is added to flour to add color and strengthen to dough, allowing it to rise higher. It's present in virtually all commercial bakery products.
Brominated vegetable oil (BVO) is added to sports drinks and sodas to suspend the flavoring in liquid. The emulsifier is in about 10% of the soda supply.
Small amounts of chlorine and chloride are required by the body, but these are toxic in large amounts. It has been linked to birth defects, cancer, reproductive disorders, stillbirth, and immune system breakdown. It also displaces iodine in the thyroid gland. Chlorinated pools and hot tubs are a source of exposure as well. Perchlorate is an environmental toxin originally developed for rocket fuels that now pollutes ground water and food supplies.
Diets high in table salt--sodium chloride--reduce the body's ability to absorb iodine. The iodine added to table salt is not the form easily assimilated by the body. Unlike table salt, unprocessed sea salts, including Celtic and Himalayan salts are not denatured by heating nor are they bleached using toxic chemicals, plus they contain a full spectrum of natural minerals.
Nascent Iodine is a readily assimilable, safe form of iodine that is vastly superior to the iodine found in common iodized table salt. It also provides much higher levels of iodine than natural, unprocessed sea salts.
Fluoride is a mutagen--a substance that causes genetic damage. It collects in the pineal gland, which is responsible for melatonin production, regulating puberty, and protecting the body from free radicals.
Fluoride is added to municipal water supplies and is widely utilized in dental products. When fluoride is added to the water supply, it winds up in processed beverages and food.
NASCENT IODINE PROVIDES FRONTLINE SELF-DEFENSE AGAINST TOXINS
Nascent iodine encourages the body to purge bromine, chlorine, and fluoride storages, as well as the heavy metals mercury, lead, cadmium, and aluminum, and protects against these chemicals' harmful effects.
Bromide and fluoride are not removed by any other known chelator or detoxifying technique.
Further, nascent iodine protects against radiation exposure and counteracts radiation damage.
During a nuclear disaster such as Fukushima, large amounts of radioactive iodine (I-131) are released into the environment.
The thyroid gland does not distinguish between benign and radioactive iodine and will absorb the form that is readily available.
Supplementing with nascent iodine can effectively "saturate" the thyroid so it is unable to uptake the harmful form.
