Info: 450 ml Bottle
You've likely heard that an iodine deficiency can lead to reduced energy, increased weight, increased susceptibility to cold, and other symptoms of an under-functioning thyroid gland. But did you also know that a variety of other systems can be compromised due to that lack of energy, including the growth or upkeep of your skin, hair and nails? Nourishing Waves Plus addresses that with kelp, which is not only a rich source of iodine, but also provides over 60 vitamins, minerals, amino acids and enzymes; plus selenium, which assists in producing thyroid hormones.
A liquid formulation from MHS, Nourishing Waves Plus includes silicon and vitamin C to stimulate the production of collagen (a major component of the skin and other connective tissue); and magnesium, to help with elastin and to help prevent scar tissue; and biotin (which helps synthesize fatty acids and certain amino acids; a deficiency of it can lead to dry skin and other skin problems, and to fine, brittle, or lost hair). Vitamin B6 has also been added, to help preserve fatty acids, which helps the skin, plus niacinamide, which, together with magnesium and biotin, helps metabolize glucose and fat, in order to fuel the skin and hair growth, which may also have a side benefit of causing weight loss.
Our thyroid glands synthesize iodine and tyrosine into two main thyroid hormones (T3 and T4) which play many vital roles, such as regulating the growth or the rate at which many systems function. And while most of us get enough tyrosine from protein-rich items in our diet to meet that need, some do not get enough iodine, and symptoms of a deficiency can include increased tiredness or reduced energy levels, abnormal weight gain, a hastened loss of hair, and less tolerance to cold temperatures. This Kelp extract sourced from Canada's Atlantic Ocean (which has been tested to be free of the radiation afflicting the Pacific waters since Japan's Fukushima nuclear power plant disaster) can help with all that, and more. Kelp and the iodine it provides can also help maintain the structural integrity of breast tissue and help alleviate breast pain. It's also a safe, effective, and advisable supplement for pregnant and breastfeeding women, because iodine is needed by the developing brain for proper cognition, and it can even help raise babies' IQ.
Formulated by MHS (My Health Supplements), and made by Nanton Nutraceuticals in Alberta, Canada. The Brown Seaweed / Laminaria digitata in this product is sourced from the Atlantic Ocean, off Nova Scotia.
