In the 1920s, when people in the United States abandoned family farms in droves for the city and started eating an imbalanced diet that included more and more boxed, canned and otherwise processed foods, they started getting goiters—an unsightly swelling of the neck caused by enlargement of the thyroid gland—almost all of which were due to a deficiency in iodine.
In 1924, the Morton Salt Company started selling iodized salt nationwide. The four inorganic compounds used as iodine sources are potassium iodate, potassium iodide, sodium iodate and sodium iodide. Iodine deficiency had already been linked to decreased IQ by then, and sure enough, subsequent testing revealed an average increase of 15 points in especially iodine-deficient areas.
However, by the end of the century, salt had been implicated as a villain in the national spike in high blood pressure and heart disease (the jury is still out as to whether that’s entirely accurate). In any case, salt was seen less and less in the cupboards of prudent Americans. On top of that, many of those that stuck with salt for its savory culinary properties started substituting sea salt, Himalayan salt and even Dead Sea salt, none which receive the iodine enrichment.
Fortunately, relief is just a droplet away, because Natural Findings Detoxified Iodine is receiving rave reviews. What makes this product superior is the way it is processed, which involves electrically charging the naturally occurring iodine by means of a proprietary method.
In case you’re interested, the top foods that are high in iodine include ocean fish and shellfish, seaweed, cranberries, asparagus, carrots, tomatoes, rhubarb, potatoes, peas, strawberries, mushrooms, egg yolk and soybeans. Or, you can reach for the eyedropper and receive 200mcg of natural iodine in a single drop from Natural Findings' best selling product, Natural Findings Detoxified Iodine.
