Iodine is an element that’s required for the thyroid gland to produce thyroid hormones. Since the body does not produce iodine on its own, it needs to come from dietary sources—and striking the right balance is key. Inadequate levels or overconsumption of iodine can lead to or worsen thyroid disease, as well as cause other significant health concerns.
Iodine is one of the most important minerals required by the body for healthy cellular and complete metabolic function. Breast tissue, the uterus, the ovaries, the thyroid, the brain and the prostate depend on iodine. But typical intake levels for most people are not optimal.
Iodine supplementation can be life-changing!
The lens’ job is to make sure light rays reflected off the objects we’re trying to see come into sharp focus. The macula is highly sensitive portion of the retina, is also responsible for vital focusing vision.
When we use our eyes to drive, read a book or even gaze at a loved one, the macula is critically important. Together, these parts of your eyes are where visual acuity and sharpness, the true nature of clear sight, come together. And fortunately for us, nutritional science holds the key to supporting them.
With your eyes, it makes very little sense to play favorites. Don’t nourish your retinas with just Lutein alone, when your lenses need Vitamin C & Vitamin A. Don’t simply take antioxidants to combat free radicals when you need Ginkgo & Billberry to help support circulation to your eyes, so protection arrives when and where it’s needed. Every part of your eye needs nourishment, and that is why we made it our mission to include powerful nutrients that target each one, all in Eye Health.
Some formulas stop there but Eye Health goes further, with Vitamin E, which studies show helps maintain lens clarity. With N-Acetyl Cysteine, which boosts your body’s ability to produce glutathione, the principal protective compound found naturally in the eye. Quercetin, which supports lense transparency and clarity. For additional protection, we’ve added Quercetin, Eyebright, Selenium & Zinc, which together add another solid layer of protection and support.

Resveratrol is a phytoalexin, a class of compounds produced by many plants when they are infected by pathogens or physically harmed by cutting, crushing, or ultraviolet radiation.
Resveratrol has many health benefits but the simplest way to describe it as a supplement that nourishes the Mitochondria in the body. It seems to roll back the effects of aging on the cells.
Here are a few of the major things we covered in this video:
Pre-conditions the heart and brain from damage caused by strokes and heart attacks. Does this by raising the activity of heme-oxygenase, a protective antioxidant enzyme that is usually activated after heart attacks and strokes. This means individuals can sustain a heart attack or stroke and suffer small or no adverse consequences.*
Prevents blood clots that cause strokes and heart attacks by inhibiting the enzyme phosphoinositide 3-kinase.
Increases the activity of an enzyme called human endothelial nitric oxide synthase which then produces nitric oxide, an agent that widens blood vessels and controls blood pressure.*Continue reading
