Iodine is a critically important nutrient to the body. The body needs iodine to produce specific hormones in the thyroid, hormones that promote proper metabolism.
Iodine helps convert thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) to triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4). Additionally, these hormones promote proper bone and brain development during pregnancy. Appropriate levels of iodine are important for everyone, especially for infants and those who are pregnant.
According to some ongoing studies (see below), proper levels of iodine in the body can even help decrease the risk of ADHD in children, while promoting healthy motor and intellectual performance.
In addition to promoting normal growth and cerebral function, iodine can assist in preventing absorption of radiation in the thyroid in the event of exposure and has shown to alleviate the symptoms of fibrocystic breast disease.
The inclusion of the BioActive Carbon molecule enhances this supplement’s ability to promote healing and support systemic wellness.
Typical dosage for BioActive Carbon Iodine is one tablet daily as directed.
Relationship between Iodine + ADHD:
The influence of components of diet on the symptoms of ADHD in children ~ PubMed/NCBI:
Chronic deficiencies of certain minerals such as zinc, iron, magnesium and iodine and insufficient dietary intake of long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids may have a significant impact on the development and deepening of the symptoms of ADHD in children.
Iodine deficiency, more than cretinism and goiter ~ PubMed/NCBI:
In this paper we will focus on the relationship between iodine deficiency and obesity, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), psychiatric disorders, fibromyalgia, and malignancies.
[Mental development disorders and attention-deficit syndrome caused by iodine deficiency: a clinical and epidemiological study] ~ PubMed/NCBI:
An increased frequency of cases with IQ not more than 80-85 scores was observed in iodine deficient areas. Iodine deficiency was a cause of clinically diagnosed borderline development delay only in 7% of children. Attention deficit syndrome (without hyperactivity) and anxiety-depressive disorders as well as asthenic symptoms were observed most frequently.
Effects of fulvic acid on growth performance and intestinal health of juvenile loach Paramisgurnus dabryanus (Sauvage) ~ PubMed/NCBI:
Results indicated that fulvic acid supplementation resulted in a reduction in the relative abundance of Serratia, Acinetobacter, Aeromonas and Edwardsiella, and a relative increase in the abundance of Lactobacillus in the intestine. In conclusion, these results suggest that fulvic acid improves growth performance and intestinal health condition of loach, indicates that fulvic acid could be used as an immunoenhancer in loach culture.
Fulvic acid as an agent to ensure bioavailability of supplement elements
Studies on the binding of fulvic acid with transferrin by spectroscopic analysis. ~ PubMed/NCBI:
Our results have indicated a mechanism of the interaction between fulvic acid and Tf, which may provide information for possible design of methods to deliver drug molecules via transferrin to target tissues and cells effectively.
