Iodine is a trace mineral and an essential component of key thyroid hormones, triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4). These hormones regulate the metabolic activities of most cells and play a vital role in the process of early growth and development of most organs, especially the brain. Inadequate intake of iodine leads to insufficient production of these hormones, which adversely affect muscle, heart, liver, kidney and the developing brain

Iodine deficiency is now known to be the most prevalent and easily preventable cause of impaired cognitive development in children in the world. There are at least 30 million suffering from this preventable condition

Iodine is the most electron-rich element required by the animal kingdom

“Supplementing with high dose iodine may be the safest, simplest, most effective, and least expensive way to solve the healthcare crisis crippling our nation.” – Dr. Guy Abraham, M.D. (Endocrinologist, Author, Dedicated researcher of the benefits of iodine supplementation)

We do not recommend iodised table salt – a far superior choice is Himalayan salt, widely available (also at this webstore)


Check for Iodine deficiency with this  Simple Home Test:

Put a small amount of iodine tincture (R2 coin size) on the inner left arm – it will leave a orange colour
See how long before the colour fades
If 1-5 hours = extremely deficient
If fades within 10 hours = deficient
The idea is to still see some slight colour after 20 hours
