Natural Help for Vitamin D and Iodine Deficiencies
Vitamin D3 5000 IU with Sea Iodine from Life Extension combines two ingredients that are important to our health but which are deficient in many of our diets.
Vitamin D for Muscle and Bone Health
Your body requires Vitamin D3 to form and maintain bones and muscles, as well as to improve balance.
Vitamin D3 also plays a role in immune system health.
It is not just your body that requires vitamin D; the probiotic bacteria in your intestines do, too, and they play a role in protecting you from disease.
Americans have been cutting back on their table salt consumption for decades, for positive reasons. However, they may have also been unwittingly lowering their iodine intake to unhealthy levels. This is because table iodine, a health promoting trace element, is added to most table salt products.
You require iodine to ensure your thyroid is functioning healthily. Your thyroid releases critical hormones your body uses to help regulate its metabolic processes.
Your body uses thyroid hormones to help your body produce energy, regulate temperatures, and maintain the health of practically every organ, tissue and cell in your body.
The sea-iodine included in this formula uses standardized extracts harvested from a blend of marine algae from the pristine waters of Iceland and Nova Scotia.
