A Short Note on Iodine Supplementation
Due to the earthquake disaster in Japan and the associated damage to one or more nuclear reactors, awareness for the need for iodine as thyroid protection is widespread on all news media. Eidon manufactures a liquid iodine supplement perfectly suited for protection of not only the thyroid, but also the tissues of the breast, and prostrate from the impact of radioactive iodine-131 absorption. If your thyroid is replete with elemental iodine the radioactive iodine-131 will not be absorbed into this organ. The same holds true for breast and prostate tissues*
Iodine's primary role is to keep the thyroid gland healthy and manufacturing sufficient thyroxine, a hormone that is needed throughout the body. 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. Iodine plays an important role in many of the body's functions.*
Thyroid hormones control proper body metabolism that can influence energy production and body temperature. Thyroid function influences the adrenal glands, reproduction, nerve and muscle function, cellular oxygen use, the health of hair, skin, and bones and the breakdown of fats and proteins.*
Women require higher iodine amounts during periods of puberty and pregnancy.*
Insufficient iodine can lead to symptoms such as fatigue, dry skin, increased blood fats, brain fog, bowel irregularity, hoarseness, and delayed reflexes. Iodine is a very effective heavy metal detoxifer of mercury, lead, cadmium, aluminum and bromide.*
Symptoms of Deficiency
Some of the symptoms of deficiency include; cold hands and feet, no energy, sleeping all the time, brittle hair, unable to concentrate, and heavy periods. When iodine is deficient, the thyroid gland enlarges, forming a goiter, as it attempts to capture more iodine for the production of thyroid hormones. Iodine deficiency causes the same symptoms as an underactive thyroid gland (hypothyroidism). The diagnosis of iodine deficiency is based on tests indicating low levels of iodine and thyroid hormones or a high level of thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) or on the presence of a goiter (only in adults).<*
About the concentrate: One drop is 75% of the US RDA. However, Iodine has been maligned in mainstream medicine over the last 100 years to the degree that the current suggested RDA will barely keep a Goiter at bay. According to the latest research, the RDA of 150 micrograms is woefully inadequate. Doses of 5 or more milligrams per day are now being recommended. Our new concentrate addresses this issue and gives you the ability to increase your dose to much higher levels, when necessary, and at a much more affordable price*

A number of questions surround dosage and side affects. I will try to answer them here.*
- WHAT KIND OF IODINE IS EIDON’S IODINE? Eidon’s Iodine is made from Potassium Iodide (KI) salt. This is the raw material recommended by all health professionals for most if not all health and medicinal applications of Iodine.*
- HOW MUCH IODINE SHOULD I TAKE? There is a lot of confusion surrounding this question. The recommendation of 130mgs per dose is seen a lot in the media surrounding radioactive exposure. In my opinion, this is an excessive dose which should only be used in cases of direct and large dose exposure to radioactive material: perhaps appropriate if you were in a 10 or 20 mile radius of a major release of radioactive material and had a severely depleted Thyroid. The objective of our recommended dosing is to provide an adequate supply of iodine to the thyroid daily to maintain proper levels. The amount each person needs is going to be quite variable.*
- EIDON’S RECOMMENDATION. We recommend anyone taking our iodine start out with the suggested dose of 2 drops daily (.225mgs) and work up to between 5 and 10 drops daily. This level of dosing should be adequate for most individuals to achieve iodine replete thyroid tissue. If you desire to take more, increase your dosing slowly up to a maximum of 30 drops daily (3.4mgs).*
- POTENTIAL SIDE EFFECTS. It is very important to understand another important use of supplemental iodine. Iodine is a very effective heavy metal mobilizer and chealator. Unfortunately, today a large majority of the US population is toxic in one or more heavy metals including mercury, lead, and cadmium. Excessive ingestion of iodine, in any form, will create releases of heavy metals into the blood stream that the average individual will have extreme difficulty dealing with and create numerous side effects. Potential effects could range from feelings of metabolic hyperactivity; inability to sleep, anxiety, and nervousness to feelings of fatigue, foggy thinking, temperature sensitivity, rashes, candida and general malaise. If you feel any odd side effects including these it is essential you understand that it isn’t a reaction of the body to the iodine, but rather to the heavy metals mobilized by the iodine. In any case, if you begin to feel poorly as you increase your iodine intake, just back off a bit to a dose which does not make you feel any negative side effects.*
