Iodine's primary role is to support a healthy thyroid gland by activating the production of thyroxine, a hormone that is needed throughout the body for energy production. About 50 to 60 percent of the body's Iodine is stored in the thyroid gland, the rest is distributed throughout the body, especially in ovaries, breast and prostate tissue, muscles, and blood. Women require higher Iodine amounts during periods of puberty and pregnancy.
Iodine plays an important role in many of the body's functions. It helps to support:
- Thyroid hormones, which control proper body metabolism that can
- influence energy production and body temperature
- Thyroid function, which influences the adrenal glands
- Healthy reproductive function
- Nerve and muscle function
- Cellular oxygen use
- Healthy hair, skin, and bones
- The breakdown of fats and proteins.
Iodine can become depleted when one is exposed to heavy metals such as mercury, lead, cadmium, aluminum and bromide.
Cold hands and feet, fatigue, sleeping all the time, brittle hair, dry skin, increased blood fats, inability to concentrate, heavy periods, bowel irregularity, hoarseness, and delayed reflexes.
The diagnosis of Iodine deficiency is based on tests indicating low levels of thyroid hormones or a high level of thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH).
About the concentrate: One drop of Eidon’s Liquid Iodine Concentrate is 75% of the US RDA. This gives you the ability to increase your dose to much higher levels, when necessary, and at a much more affordable price.
Food High in Iodine:
Seaweed, seafood, dairy products, eggs, corn, prunes, and beans.
Eidon Liquid Minerals are All Natural, Highly Bioavailable and contain NO sugars, starch, artificial flavors, colors, preservatives or animal by-products. Vegan and Gluten-Free. Eidon uses the finest ingredients known to us in the formulation of our unique preparations. Out of respect for all life, we do not test - nor have we ever tested - our products on animals.
Obtaining the needed minerals via the food we eat is a chronic problem today. This is primarily due to our deficient soils and over processing and over cooking of our foods. Drinking ultra-purified water can also strip our body of these essential minerals. It is important to be aware of the fact that reverse osmosis and distilled water will actually act in reverse of what nature intended our water to do. Instead of being a mineral delivery system, the minerals are taken out of the water and this puts additional stress on the body tissue to compensate for the lack of minerals in the water. The minerals must then be taken from our healthy reserves in bone and muscle, thus leaving our system deficient and vulnerable. Replacement is essential!

I had thyroid cx many years ago, I use this product for its purity and I have noticed a marked improvement in my health. I am on a therapeutic dose as prescribed by a ND which is slightly higher than the recommended dose.

Very good quality minerals. The body loves them. I seem to have a high requirement for iodine daily and this does the trick.
Fantastic! All day mental & physical stamina
Posted by Jdemedicici on 27th Jul 2017
Fantastic product. Highly effective and noticeable difference in overall mental clarity and energy. I have a genetic issue with thyroid whereby my T4 does not convert to T3 at all. My physician highly recommended and encouraged me to take iodine. T3 alone was not giving me "all day mental and physical stamina," however, the combination of T3 and Eidon's Iodine concentrate (literally only takes 1-2 drops daily to be effective) continues to get me through even the longest and toughest days. I also take several other products from this brand. I absolutely love all of them thus far.

I like this iodine because it practically doesn't have that typical unpleasant taste of regular brown iodine. This is clear liquid, easy to use -- 2-4 drops/day. The price is good, too. One bottle will last for a year for both of us.
Best for thyroid issues!!!

I had a slow metabolism and i used that in combination to the Selenium and 1 month after using that my t4 and t3 were up by 5 times than before. Also im feeling very energetic in everything i do during the day, and the best part is i lost 10 pound without even trying too hard ever since!!

Great so far

I think this is a great product so far. It is very strong and I think you should start slowly by drinking it twice a week at first then doubling it gradually until your body is used to it.

One of my favorite nutrients!
Posted by Anne Callaway on 27th Jul 2017
I take a couple of milligrams of this stuff per day, and simply love it. Start with one drop in a large pint and NO MORE.

I take a drop a few days a week... that is it ! and it has helped me retain my body heat in the winter. I like it that I don't have to keep the heater on all day just from taking a drop of this with my tea in the morning. I might even start taking it daily... I just didn't want to overdo it at first. A little goes a long way. I've even convinced my husband to take a drop on the very cold mornings and it seems to make him happier about winter :-)

I buy iodine for a friend that was to have surgery to have her thyroid removed because of goiters. After taking this iodine for just a short time her Dr. told her she didn't need the surgery at this time.

Very potent, saves money
Posted by Sue on 27th Jul 2017
I didn't believe their claim that it wasn't necessary to take high doses and I took 5 drops. I've saturated with Lugol's iodine and maintained for 3 years. If I take a 32mg p.iodine pill I get no side affects, but 4 drops of Eidon iodine gave me insomnia. I figure I must have retained 1/4mg out of the 32mg pill. I just started taking their potassium to counteract sodium and balance that mineral pair. I also sent in my hair analysis from the form on Eidon's website, $70. I intend to balance all my minerals.
