Iodine! Did you know that one tube of Ningxia Nitro contains 75 mcg of pure iodine?
Iodine is a mineral that is needed in the diet to ensure that the thyroid works properly.
Thyroid hormones play an important role in a wide range of bodily functions, including metabolism, bone health, immune response, and development of the central nervous system (CNS).
Iodine helps convert thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) to triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4). This conversion is important for the thyroid to function properly.
An iodine imbalance can lead to an overactive or underactive thyroid.
Around 70 to 80 percent of iodine is found in the thyroid gland in the neck. The rest is in the blood, the muscles, the ovaries, and other parts of the body.
