I | Iodine

Iodine is especially important for the synthesis of thyroid hormones. The most important sources of iodine are seafood and seaweed. Symptoms of long-term deficiency are usually fatigue and insomnia, decreased thyroid function, and slower reactions.

Iodine contributes to:

  • Normal cognitive function
  • Normal energy-yielding metabolism
  • Normal nervous system function
  • Maintenance of normal skin
  • Normal production of thyroid hormones and normal thyroid function 

‍Iodine is a natural component of the ingredients in ManaPowder and ManaDrink. We also add it in the form of potassium iodate.
