Dr Seaweed I Love Seaweed food capsules is a natural good source of iodine. Iodine is required by the body for normal thyroid function, energy metabolism, cognitive and nerve function, and skin. It is particularly important for normal growth in children. The UK has been identified as one of the most iodine-deficient countries in the world, with teenage girls at particular risk. Vegans are also at risk of severe iodine deficiency.
Doctor Seaweed knows his seaweed and carefully selects only the best. The Herbridean Ascophyllum Seaweed used in these superfood seaweed capsules is sustainably wild harvested from pristine Scottish waters, low temperature dried, and then milled using proprietary technologies.
Each batch is DNA Authenticated, with full traceability to ensure the highest possible quality. Independent analysis shows this seaweed is higher on key measures of quality in comparison to other brands.
The thyroid gland is situated in our neck and is considered to be the center for the body’s metabolism. It produces various hormones, particularly Thyroxine (T3) which requires adequate iodine in the diet to synthesize.
An underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism) is the most common thyroid problem and may happen when our bodies do not produce enough thyroxine to meet our needs. Hypothyroidism symptoms can include:tiredness and fatigue, weight gain, depression, concentration issues, and feeling cold.
Hypothyroidism can occur if we don’t have enough iodine in our diets as it’s an essential part of thyroxine production. Most people need additional iodine as it’s relatively difficult to get from the diet.
