Traditionally, the importance of iodine to the biological function of the body was focused on iodines role in the nourishment of the thyroid gland, particularly for the production of T3 and T4 hormones and the regulation of metabolism. However, as the understanding of this nutrient has progressed, we come to understand that the role of iodine in the body far surpasses what most thought, and is not only necessary for overall health, but a crucial component of the detoxification process.
What is Nascent Iodine?
Nascent Iodine is a consumable iodine in its atomic form rather than its molecular form. It is an iodine atom that has an incomplete number of electrons. It is paramagnetic. What does that mean? Well, it means that the iodine atoms can hold an electromagnetic charge. While this all might sound a little like a flashback to chemistry class, the most important thing to understand is that Nascent Iodine has a huge energy release when consumed. This charged state is held by the atom until diluted in water and consumed, whereby it gradually loses energy over a 2-3 hour time span. During this time, Nascent Iodine is recognized by the body as the same iodine that is recognized by the thyroid and is absorbed effortlessly by the body.
Is Nascent Iodine the Same as Detoxified Iodine or Atomic Iodine?
No, Detoxified Iodine is a coined name that for many years has been produced at 10 amps of resistance for five minutes with a high volume of iodine in solution. An iodine process that according to Edgar Cayce gives the molecule of iodine additional energy making it easier to assimilate into the body.
Nascent Iodine is also totally different from the typical iodine in its denser state sold as an antiseptic, or as iodine tri-chloride (claiming to be atomized), or as added to potassium iodide to make it soluble in liquid. It is also unlike glandular or prescriptions containing hormones that take over the thyroid´s job, instead of nutritionally building the thyroid to do its own job. Seaweed, seafood, greens, raw sunflower seeds, are good sources of iodine, but may not have the levels necessary to support the thyroid fully for good homeostasis in the body. Sources from seaweed may also contain high levels of arsenic.
