Plant based Iodine for Immune Support

Iodine is an essential element required for the function of all organ systems. Despite this, much of Europe is deficient in iodine, and increasingly those on plant-based diets.

Although the importance of iodine in thyroid hormone synthesis and reproduction is well known, its direct effects on the immune system are elusive.

However, a study1 revealed the novel network between human immune cells and thyroid-related molecules and highlight the importance of iodine in regulating the function of human immune cells.

PureSea’s range of naturally innovative seaweed ingredients provide a good source of natural plant-based essential iodine.  Use of PureSea allows for numerous EFSA health claims including supporting normal thyroid function and production of thyroid hormones.
