Why do I Need Iodine? Nascent Iodine is extremely important for absorbability into the body's system. Iodine is used by every hormone in the body. Primary uptake is in the Thyroid, then preferentially distributed to receptors throughout the whole body including breast, stomach, intestines, liver, kidneys, nerves, brain and every molecule including DNA. Seaweed, seafood, greens, raw sunflower seeds are good sources of Iodine, but may not have the levels necessary to fully support good homeostasis in the body. A sufficient supply of Iodine is crucial for synthesis of Thyroid hormones and for its the normal function. A lack of Iodine allows other halogens, such as Bromine and Chlorine, to masquerade as Iodine, causing harm to the body. Signs of Iodine deficiency include: Unusual fatigue, Stubborn weight gain, Irregular bowel movements, Lifeless skin, Occasional aches and stiffness, and Bouts of sadness. Why is NascAtomic Different? Baar Products has over 25 years of experience electrifying Iodine. The quality that separates NascAtomicTM from all other iodine products is that the diatomic bond is broken, liberating the Iodine element in an atomic or nascent state. This is done by the process of electrifying the solution which allows the Iodine atoms to each keep one of the two electrons that had made up the covalent bond. This is known as homolytic cleavage and creates an electromagnetic charge to the Iodine. That means your body is able to use it more efficiently. In this form, the body can readily assimilate and use the Iodine and convert it to be easily used by the body. The Iodine being in the atomic state was the reason it was called Atomidine or Atomic Iodine. Tested Free of Radio-Activity.
