The older I get, the more I believe in the power of vitamins.
As someone who is often anemic, when I am run down and feeling less energetic, I know that my iron is low. After a couple days of upping my simple over the counter iron supplement, I feel my regular energy return.
When I am feeling bluesy during the dead of winter, I know that taking more Vitamin D tablets will help alleviate my mood.
I have lately been reading more about the importance of iodine for women’s health. People in Japan consume about 100 times the amount of daily iodine that we do in America, mostly because iodine-rich seaweed is a staple of the Japanese diet. And I know we all have read so many articles about the lack of cancer and other health problems in the Japanese population, especially in comparison to Americans.
Iodine deficiency is being linked to health conditions such as polycystic breast disease and menstrual-related breast discomfort. Apparently, when the female body does not have enough iodine, the breast tissue becomes more sensitive to estrogenic stimulation, which in turn produces microcysts high in potassium. The potassium is believed to be an irritant that produces fibrosis and eventually cyst isolation.
I for one want to do everything I can to make sure my annual mammograms are as clear as possible. I really do not want to have to come back for more boob-squishing readings due to fibrosis and benign cysts. I am also tired of annoying and painful breast soreness when my period is due.
That is why I have added Violet iodine to my vitamin collection. This supplement is composed of molecular iodine, which has been effective in reducing fibrocystic breast tissue, which can worsen the symptoms associated with having dense breasts. Clinical studies show that molecular iodine is absorbed more readily into breast tissue than regular iodine, making it the preferred method for breast health.
