Iodine is an essential mineral that facilitates a wide range of normal bodily processes and promotes healthy metabolic and immune functions. Iodine also supports healthy thyroid function by maintaining hormone levels within the normal range. Additionally, stable iodine is an important mineral needed by the body to naturally produce thyroid hormones.
With roughly a third of the surface tension of water, Health Ranger's Nascent Iodine has one of the smallest drops and lowest surface tension of any iodine product we've tested so far. This low surface tension can make nascent iodine easier for your body to absorb. Our incredibly potent iodine formulation is created using the divinely-inspired Edgar Cayce method of adding energy to diatomic iodine to create monatomic "nascent" iodine.
Health Ranger’s Nascent Iodine is a stable iodine supplement that's scientifically tested for potency and composition. Because it uses a solution of alcohol instead of glycerine, our formulation has an incredibly long shelf life. Each bottle of Health Ranger’s Nascent Iodine provides approximately 1,100 servings and delivers 400 mcg of elemental iodine per 1-drop serving.
One ml of liquid contains 64 drops, meaning it has roughly one-third the surface tension of water. You can trust that our high-quality iodine supplement is non-China and non-GMO and is extensively lab tested for glyphosate, microbiology and heavy metals.
Health benefits of iodine**
Supports healthy thyroid function – Iodine plays a vital role in the healthy function of your thyroid, so your body needs a certain amount of this essential mineral every day to work normally. The thyroid absorbs iodine and converts it for use throughout the body. A lack of iodine can put extra stress on your thyroid just to function properly.
Promotes healthy metabolism – Metabolism is one of the key functions of the thyroid gland. Since iodine is necessary for healthy thyroid function, you can support your metabolism by supplementing with nascent iodine.
Supports healthy skin, teeth and hair – Iodine is an important element for maintaining healthy, glowing skin. A lack of iodine can lead to dry, flaky skin. Iodine also supports strong and healthy hair and teeth.
Promotes healthy cognitive function – Having adequate levels of iodine in the body is linked to optimal cognitive function. Supplementing with iodine can help support a healthy brain.
Supports a healthy immune system – An inorganic antioxidant, iodine can help scavenge free radicals and protect your cells from oxidative stress. It can also support healthy immune function by promoting the natural activity of other antioxidants in your body. According to a study published in the journal Frontiers in Immunology, iodine is important for optimal immune health.
Helps maintain healthy energy levels – Keeping your energy levels up is crucial during a survival situation. A study published in the quarterly medical journal Hippokratia reported that iodine can help your body maintain healthy energy levels.
How do I take iodine supplements?
Because iodine is an essential mineral, you need to consume a certain amount of it every day in order for your body to function properly.
Our Health Ranger's Nascent Iodine delivers 400 mcg of elemental iodine per 1-drop serving. Simply add one to three drops of our nascent iodine formulation to half an ounce of water and drink immediately. It is best consumed 15 to 20 minutes before a meal. Absorption begins immediately upon drinking it. Be careful about taking iodine too late in the day as some people may experience a heightened sense of energy that could make getting restful sleep difficult at night. However, please check with your healthcare provider to determine exactly much iodine you need to consume.
NOTE: When taking Health Ranger’s Nascent Iodine, do not add acidic substances to the water as they may alter the chemistry of nascent iodine before you can consume it. Do not exceed the recommended daily intake of dietary iodine unless under the supervision of a licensed medical professional.
Please also understand that iodine alone does not magically offer radiation protection to the rest of your body. It is primarily used to prevent radioactive isotopes of iodine such as iodine-131 from concentrating in the thyroid and causing it to suffer critical, irreversible tissue damage from internal ionizing radiation.
