PotentSea® Organic Sea Vegetables naturally contain nutrients such as iodine, magnesium, potassium, calcium and iron that are proven to help promote health, wellness and longevity. In particular, the rich amount of organic iodine works to promote breast and thyroid health.
Breast cancer rates in the western world have steadily climbed over the past 30 years. At the same time, breast cancer rates among Japanese women are far less than their western counterparts. This fact led University of California campuses UC Berkeley and UC Davis to conduct a long-term joint study on breast cancer prevention methods that was published in the Journal of Nutrition. They concluded that the Japanese women had a diet much richer in sea vegetables than western women. The trace minerals and bio-available iodine in sea vegetables lead to longer periods of menstruation in Japanese women, which results in a lower amount of periods over the course of a lifetime, and therefore less exposure to the hormones released during menstruation that can result in breast cancer. Therefore, their diet was essentially the main causal factor in determining their breast cancer prevention methodology.
The rich amount of organic iodine and trace minerals also work to promote a healthy thyroid, which can be helpful with weight loss. Thyroid balance is critical to maintaining a healthy flow of hormones through the body. The thyroid is responsible for producing most of the hormones that drive our life force, such as testosterone and estrogen. As we age, without proper nutrition, the thyroid can become off balance and produce too many or too little hormones, which can factor into weight loss or gain. These syndromes are referred to as hyperthyroidism, where the thyroid is overactive, and hypothyroidism, where the thyroid is under active. If you have hypothyroidism, supplementing with Sea Vegetables can help support thyroid function and promote weight loss. Optimal thyroid function is a critical component of overall wellness.
