Herba Fucus Vesiculosus (Nova Scotia and Pacific Kelp) 300 mg
Scientific trials reveal amazing health benefits

  • Research finding suggested that kelp at an appropriate dosage may demonstrate endocrine modulating effects which may contribute to lower incidence of hormone-dependent cancers1.

  • Review of published data in Europe showed that most pregnant women experienced mild-to-moderate iodine deficiency. This warrant attention and health experts recommend that iodine supplements are essential for pregnant women, as well as women who start preparing for pregnancy to ensure the health of expectant mother and baby2.

  • Daily intake of 1-2 g powdered kelp containing 200-400 μg iodine was able to restore thyroid function and normalize urinary iodine concentration in patients with severe motor intellectual disabilities receiving total enteral nutrition that were also diagnosed hypothyroidism due to iodine deficiency3.

For health maintenance, take 5 tablets daily. For therapeutic uses, take 10 tablets daily.
The Challenge
The National Iodine Study conducted in Malaysia has found that children are only borderline iodine adequate. The overall prevalence of iodine deficiency disorders was 48.2%, higher among children in rural areas than in urban areas. Although goitre endemic was not present in Malaysia, it was noticed that large proportion of the population in almost half of the states in Peninsular Malaysia have median urinary iodine level <100μg/L (lower than the recommended level by WHO). You may not be aware that even mild iodine deficiency may cause serious problems. Iodine is a necessary nutrient, not only for proper thyroid functioning but, it is also essential for the normal functioning of your body cells, nervous system, muscles, brain development, oxygen utilization, metabolism, a strong immune system, and a whole lot more.
Ask yourself, are you losing hair and have greying hair? Are you still tired after a night of sound sleep? Are you suffering from enlarged thyroid gland? Well, minerals and trace elements such as iodine, calcium, iron, zinc, etc. are necessary for your overall health. Failure in getting these important elements can result in serious consequences. A shortage of iodine causes fatigue, goitre and grey hair in some individuals.
