Understanding Iodide and Iodine
Iodide and iodine are misunderstood by most people, because when they hear the term “iodide” they usually associate it with potassium iodide, sodium iodide or some other salt. So when one hears the term iodide, one must not associate it with any of those salts (sodium, potassium etc.). Iodide by itself (without the presence of salts) is Nascent Iodine.
Iodine occurs in nature as 2 atoms of iodine paired (bound) together to form a molecule. This iodine in known as molecular or elemental iodine (I2). The I2 form of iodine is difficult for the body to process and use correctly, and must be converted into its nascent state (I) for use. Our I▪53™ Nascent Iodine contains the elemental form of iodine (before it is exposed to the patented electromagnetic process). Once the I▪53™ solution (alcohol and dissolved elemental iodine, I2) is exposed to the electromagnetic process, cleavage occurs across the bond that was once connecting the two Iodine atoms. This cleavage creates (I) which in science is termed an iodide.
So, in fact, I▪53™ Nascent Iodine is Iodide, the “I” species of iodine. It is present in its singular (1 atom) atomic form, rather than in its molecular form (I2) with 2 iodine atoms bonded together, which is what our iodine crystals are before the I▪53™ iodine is electromagnetically processed.
The I▪53™ atomic (I) form of iodine is what your thyroid actually produces for use in thyroid hormone production. So instead of the thyroid actively having to convert iodine (I2) to iodide (I) so it can be used by the body, the conversion already has been accomplished by the patented electromagnetic process. I▪53™ (I) is readily absorbed by the cells, once ingested, and does not have to go through the thyroid first to be converted, as does potassium iodide (KI), sodium iodide (NaI) and elemental iodine (I2). Therefore, I▪53™ (I) does not use up the body’s energy (ATP) to convert potassium iodide (KI), sodium iodide (NaI) and molecular iodine (I2) into useful iodine (I), since the I▪53™ iodine is already in the nascent state, and allows the entire body to utilize it instantly.*
