Iodine supplements tincture drops, more commonly known as Nascent Iodine as coined by Edgar Cayce, is a trace mineral that is required by the body for the synthesis of the thyroid hormones, thyroxine (T4), and triiodothyronine (T3). All the cells in your body contain and make use of iodine. It is a member of the glandular system of our body, with the thyroid containing the highest amount of iodine compared to any other organ. Significant amounts of iodine are also stockpiled in numerous other areas of the body including the salivary glands, cerebrospinal fluid, and the brain.
Iodine is primarily found in seawater in very small amounts and solid rocks that are normally close to the ocean, and that form when seawater evaporates. Iodine can also be obtained from sea organisms, such as seaweed or naturally in the crust of the earth.
According to Dr. G. E. Abraham,
“Of all the elements known so far to be essential for health, iodine, is the most misunderstood and the most feared. Yet, it is by far the safest of all the trace elements known to be essential for human health. It is the only trace element that can be ingested safely to pulmonary patients in daily amounts of up to 6.0gm/day, in large groups of such patients for several years.”
