Bio-Available Iodine

Magnascent T , Nascent Bio-Available Iodine Supplement

Technical discussion on Iodine

A sufficient supply of iodine is crucial for endogenous synthesis of thyroid hormones and for the normal function and morphology of the thyroid. The World Health Organization documents that adults require 150 - 300 g iodine per day. Up to now, this goal has not yet been met. Insufficient iodine supply is a probable cause of disease which can lead to endemic goiter and in extreme cases to congenital cretinism.

The essential building blocks to health are clean water, natural salt, soda and iodine. From these four building blocks iodine seems to be the least understood and most neglected. Nascent Iodine is extremely important for absorbability into the body's system. MAGNASCENT T , through a proprietary process, accomplishes this critical process making MAGNASCENT T 99 percent bio-available into the bloodstream. Its main function is to provide the required element for the thyroid gland, which is the center of the immune system in the human body. The thyroid gland impacts all of the glands in the body, which regulates all the other systems directly. When the thyroid is operating properly, the RESOLVE is restored and VITALITY returns. Many long standing health conditions may vastly improve or completely reverse when iodine is properly supplied to the body.

Iodine Metabolism In the Thyroid

The major function of the gland is to concentrate iodine, and to synthesize thyroxine (T 4 ) or triiodothyronine (T 4 ). There is always about 20-50 mg of iodine in the body; 8 mg is in the thyroid. The supply may be variable. Iodine comes from water and food, but is also absorbed by intact skin and lungs. Throughout the world, the intake varies. 1 mg is needed per week, or about 50 mg/year. Diet under normal circumstances contains at least 150 micrograms daily.

The iodine pump (iodide trapping) gets the ion into the thyroid. It works against the concentration gradient which is at least 1 (blood) to 25 (gland). The pump is activated by pituitary TSH. ATP is utilized as a source of energy. Excess iodine in the gland inhibits the thyroid hormone synthesis.

Thyroid Hormone Synthesis

Iodide is first oxidized either into nascent iodine I o or I 3- The enzyme peroxidase is necessary as well as hydrogen peroxide. Then, iodine is attached to tyrosine which is the precursor of the thyroid hormones. Monoiodotyrosine and diiodotyrosine are formed by tyrosine iodinase.

Then, two molecules of iodinated tyrosine are coupled into T 3 and T 4 . T 3 is four times as potent as T 4 . About three quarters of the iodinated tyrosine never becomes thyroid hormones. They may be released from thyroglobulin and deiodinated by a deiodinase enzyme. About 90% of hormone produced is thyroxin. The hormones are formed within a globulin molecule in the thyroid and stored as thyroglobuline (MW about 670,000), where there are about 3 molecules of thyroxine and 1 molecule of T 3 per molecule of thyroglobulin. About 2 to 3 months of supply is stored in the gland.

What Is Your Thyroid Gland?:

Your thyroid gland is one of the endocrine glands, which make hormones to regulate physiological functions in your body. The thyroid gland manufactures thyroid hormone, which regulates the rate at which your body carries on its necessary functions. Other endocrine glands are the pancreas, the pituitary, the adrenal glands, the parathyroid glands, the testes, and the ovaries.

The thyroid gland is located in the middle of the lower neck, below the larynx (voice box) and just above your clavicles (collarbones). It is shaped like a "bow tie," having two halves (lobes): a right lobe and a left lobe joined by an "isthmus.". You can't always feel a normal thyroid gland.

Twenty-five percent of all the body's iodide ions are in the thyroid gland.

What is Magnascent T, Nascent Iodine and what is Detoxified Iodine

Nascent Iodine

Nascent Iodine is totally different from the typical iodine in its denser state sold as an antiseptic, or as iodine tri-chloride (claiming to be atomized), or as added to potassium iodine to make it safer. It is also unlike glandular or prescriptions containing hormones that take over the thyroid's job, instead of nutritionally building the thyroid to do its own job. Seaweed, seafood, greens, raw sunflower seeds, are good sources of iodine, but may not have the levels necessary to support the thyroid fully for good homeostasis in the body. Sources from seaweed may contain certain levels of arsenic. MAGNASCENT T is considered nascent iodine, not detoxified iodine.

Difference between Nascent Iodine and Detoxified Iodine

Detoxified Iodine - A brand name that for many years has been produced at 10 amps of resistance for five minutes with a high volume of iodine.

Nascent Iodine - A scientific term for iodine that can have a huge energy release. To produce iodine in the pre-nascent state a ten gallon electrolytic bath can have only 8 ounces of iodine (1 ounce per gallon of liquid) for 15 minutes at 30 amps of resistance. This takes much longer and is more difficult to produce; therefore, most people do not want to take the time to make nascent iodine. The iodine molecule has the diatomic bond broken and has a high amount of electromagnetic energy associated. During the 2 to 3 hour of activation time the nascent iodine has the ability to be of great assistance to the body. Much more the nascent state is considered by science to be very effective. They have mentioned an MD promoting Iodine in the 1970's who said Iodine produced by brown lime was the best form of Iodine. That is , in fact, Nascent iodine.

The quality that separates nascent iodine from all other iodine products is that the diatomic bond is broken in this condition and that the iodine atoms each keep one of the two electrons that had made up the covalent bond. This is known as homolytic cleavage and causes the iodine atom to be subject to magnetic charging. The iodine being in the atomic state was the reason it was called Atomidine, for Atomic Iodine (1926 to 1935).

This atomic state and large electromagnetic charge is held by the atom until diluted in water and consumed. Once diluted and inside the body this atom is readily absorbed and utilized by the body.

To quote the 1930's document by Schieffelin and Company:

This charged atom of iodine starts a process of relaxation where it gradually loses energy, 2 to 3 hours. During this time the body recognizes this atom as the same nascent iodine it produces in the thyroid in order to make the T3 and T4 hormones. It must also recognize "the well known germicidal qualities of the nascent iodine atom".

If the body does recognize both these qualities, it can then use this charged atom in the thyroid or elsewhere in the body as needed.

The body requires more or less nascent iodine depending on the task being addressed. To boost the body systems may require very small amounts, a few drops once a day. In the other extreme with life threatening illnesses, it has been reported that to fight parasites from malaria requires as much as 20 drops 5 times for the first day. And then 10 drops 4 times a day until the blood stream is clear in a few days.

The nascent iodine effect is well known in science and medicine. Several medical patents exist for non-consumable nascent iodine.

In summary, the actual difference between nascent iodine and detoxified iodine is that nascent iodine can have a much greater impact on the body. Its abilities far exceed the simple being easy to absorb and safe, it can do real work in the thyroid and throughout the body.


The chemical purity of the iodine in MAGNASCENT T is greater than or = 99.8%. We are more concerned about the purity than the actual source. Iodine from seaweed may possibly contain impurities found in the ocean such as arsenic and bromine in quantities that are not desirable or healthy.
