More information about Iodine
OrganicIodine occurs in nature especially in the sea. On the land, the amount of iodine is very unevenly distributed. The best natural food sources of iodine are therefore all products that come from the sea, such as fish, shellfish and seaweed. Iodine Organic comes from organic seaweed (Ascophyllum nodosum) that is naturally a rich source of iodine. The product has been standardized to contain 150 mcg of iodine per capsule.
The seaweed species used in Iodine Organic is Ascophyllum nodosum. It is won organically and sustainably by the producer Seaweed & Co from the clean sea around the Hebrides (a group of islands off the west coast of Scotland). After the harvest the seaweed is processed by means of a patented production method that keeps the original nutritional value of the algae intact. In addition, each batch is analyzed for iodine content and purity to ensure that it meets the highest quality requirements. The iodine content in seaweed can vary greatly. Both too low and too high an iodine content is undesirable and that is why it is important to choose a seaweed product where the content is always determined again. In addition, Seaweed & Co is the only seaweed producer in the world to supply DNA Authenticated Seaweed ™ in which the origin and high quality of their specific tubular algae are confirmed by DNA testing by an external party.
This iodine product is a ‘whole food’ and not an extract. The capsule contains the ‘whole’ seaweed with, in addition to iodine, traces of other naturally occurring minerals. The seaweed is biologically certified on the basis of the quality of the water and the degree of sustainability of the breeding techniques. The water is routinely analyzed. An important part of the sustainable breeding technique is that only the upper part of the seaweed plant is used. The whole plant is therefore not removed, which prevents that after 2 to 4 years nothing grows. This is further monitored and controlled by the Crown Estate Scottish Environmental Protection Agency and the Scottish Natural Heritage.
Performance of iodine in the body
Iodine is an essential trace element that plays an important role in thyroid function and is necessary for the production of thyroid hormones. Through these hormones (thyroxine / T4 and tri-iodothyronine / T3) iodine contributes to normal energy metabolism, partly by supporting the activity of certain enzymes that are involved in the release of energy from fats, carbohydrates and proteins. Likewise, by supporting the functioning of the thyroid gland, iodine contributes to a normal cognitive function (such as memory, concentration and learning ability). Finally, iodine is important for the nervous system and the skin.
The active ingredients of organic food supplements are guaranteed to be of natural origin and not synthetically manufactured. In addition, production, as much as possible, takes into account the environment, animals and humans. All kinds of regulations lay down what is meant by it. Among other things, no chemical pesticides, fertilizers or genetically modified organisms are used. The Skal Biocontrole institute checks whether the regulations are complied with and whether a product may be called organic. Organic products can be recognized by the code NL-BIO-01 and the European organic quality mark.
