2 month jar of Organic wild Ascophyllum Nutritious Food seaweed capsules for those with a known iodine deficiency.
Iodine is one of the most important minerals for health, and among the most underrated - not least for hormone production and regulation, particularly in the thyroid gland.
Iodine contributes to normal thyroid, nervous system and cognitive function, the normal growth of children, normal energy-yielding metabolism, and the maintenance of normal skin.
Each capsule contains 100% whole Seagreens Nutritious food quality Ascophyllum nodosum seaweed, which typically contains 350 micrograms of natural iodine. We carefully micronise this iodine-rich species as a raw food and seal it in a vegetable capsule.
The 'p lus' is that Seagreens naturally contains all the other micronutrients needed for the proper transport and metabolism of iodine including selenium, tyrosine, zinc, copper, vitamins A, B2, B3, B6 and C.

NOTES ON IODINE FROM SEAGREENS
In the UK, 66% of women and over 75% of 14-year old school girls tested, 82% of pregnant women, and 52% of 25-year-old students, were found to have insufficient dietary iodine. 49% of babies were found to be mildly deficient. Sufficient daily intake is especially important in women of child bearing age, in pregnancy, and in young children, since iodine is crucial for foetal and child brain development.
Independent research at Glasgow University in Scotland, compared Seagreens® wild Ascophyllum to a commonly used source of iodine - potassium iodide.
The study found that although both forms are bioavailable, the potassium
iodide peaks and is quickly excreted from the body, whereas the Seagreens
iodine is more gradually absorbed - with no adverse effects on thyroid
function. Thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) was normalised across the
study group of 50 iodine-insufficient women, whose average age was 25.
