Nascent iodine is a supplemental form of iodine thought to be more safe and effective than potassium iodide. Nascent iodine holds an atomic form of iodine with an incomplete number of electrons, giving it a high electromagnetic charge. The body can seamlessly absorb and utilize nascent iodine for metabolic and detoxification processes, making it more effective as a supplement for the body.
Nascent Iodine History
Since 1926, this form of iodine has been used as a cleanser and germicide. Prior to antibiotics and pharmaceuticals, nascent iodine was revered for its tissue-building properties and potent capacities against harmful organisms. It was commonly used for a broad range of ailments, including stomach and urinary tract imbalances, fevers, general infections, high blood pressure, venereal diseases, infections, bronchitis and even topically as a remedy for burns, cuts, and boils.
Nascent iodine was used in dentistry during the early 20th century to stop bleeding and prevent infections. It was frequently applied after tooth extractions to boost the growth of new tissue and speed up the healing process.
How Nascent Iodine Works
Unlike most forms of consumable iodine, nascent iodine works to naturally balance the thyroid to a state of homeostasis. Studies are examining its potential to positively regulate thyroid hormone production. If there is a clear connection, taking nascent iodine may lead to increased energy levels and a streamlining of the body’s natural detoxification processes. Biochemically, nascent iodine is the most readily absorbed and usable form of iodine supplementation for the human body.
Nascent Iodine Uses
Nascent Iodine has multiple benefits and uses. Perhaps most important is its ability to stimulate thyroid production of T3 and T4 hormones. Nascent iodine may help stop bromine, chlorine, and fluoride storage in the body, and slow the production of goitrogens. In this way, nascent iodine aids the body in removing harmful substances that can be stored. Goitrogens are found in sports drinks, sodas and processed vegetable oils. Bromines are present in toxic, chemically-laden household products, pool water and flame retardant fabrics.
Nascent iodine is the best form of iodine to protect yourself from harmful radiation exposure in the event of nuclear fallout.
In his book, Iodine: Why You Need It, Why You Can’t Live Without it (Rev. 2008), Dr. David Brownstein states that supplementing with iodine can help detoxify us of the toxic halides found in processed foods, water, and toothpaste. According to Dr. Brownstein, these halides have been correlated to multiple forms of cancer, including breast and prostate.
Other Health Benefits of Nascent Iodine May Include:
- Healthy thyroid and endocrine function
- Aids in regulating blood sugar
- Reduced body odors
- Improving thinking
- Helps support iodine deficiency in children and expectant mothers
- Helps balance iodine levels in autistic children
- Aids in assisting normal immune function
I highly recommend supplementing with nascent iodine on a regular basis. We are all at risk to be deficient of this crucial element and should further be aware of an increase in potential nuclear fallout from damaged reactors. Detoxadine is manufactured with a unique transformative bio-elemental matrix using a revolutionary process and contains nano-colloidal nascent iodine.
