Clinicians Iodine Oral Drops
About this Product
odine is required to make thyroid hormones so with insufficient iodine, energy levels and healthy metabolism may be compromised. Insufficient iodine may also affect growth and development, protein synthesis, cholesterol production, carbohydrate absorption, nerve and bone formation, reproduction, speech and mental health and the condition of the hair, skin and nails. Iodine is deficient in New Zealand soil, so deficiency is common.
