Iodine is the earliest, and most powerful antioxidant. The thyroid evolved so that we could extract iodine from body fluids, and store iodine for many different processes. Iodine kills almost every known disease organism, and has been protecting organisms from invasive microbes for billions of years.
Io Products are focused on 4 key areas.
The mouth (and nose) are the tunnels that connect the inside of us with the outside world. Every breath, every bit of food, every kiss, every spoken word, bring the outside world into us, into our bodies. They bring it past our teeth, gums, palate, naso-pharyngeal passages into our lungs, our bellies, and our gut – and thereby into all the rest of our body. Of course, some remain along the way. That’s why we need iodine in our salivary glands, our mouth, our nasal passages and our gut. We were designed by The Greatest Creator to cope – elegantly – with the bombardment of microbes and chemicals of the earth. That protective chemical mechanism uses iodine.
As we left the oceans, towards the end of our 2.5 billion-year evolutionary program, we encountered oxygen, and land. Of course, we need oxygen for life, and we lost the ability to extract it from sea-water. Yet…yet….oxygen can be a poison. It rusts iron; degrades rocks, can cause cancer, and would destroy our organs if it were not for our anti-oxidants. We can only use so much oxygen. Anti-oxidants protect us from….oxygen! When we lived in the oceans, we could remove just as much as we needed for blood circulation. But once on the land, we were (and are!) bombarded with oxygen, the waste product of the plants that arose about 3 billion years ago. We need a chemical to protect us from oxygen.
Iodine is the earliest, and possibly the most powerful antioxidant ever. It is plentiful in the ocean, ranging from 10 to 40 micrograms per liter of sea water. Every living organism uses iodine for a variety of life processes, and the creatures that left the ocean for the land had to find a way to store it. The thyroid evolved so that we could extract iodine from body fluids, and store iodine for many different processes. The three most critical processes are brain/nerve development in the fetus and newborn, metabolic regulation (the speed at which we consume food) and infectious disease protection. In short, iodine kills almost every known disease organism, and has been protecting us from illness for billions of years.
Harness the power of this amazing, ancient antioxidant by increasing the iodine in your mouth…quickly, easily, daily, and effectively. Floss with IoFloss.
These sources are both nutritional and cleaning related. Io Products has developed a nutritional supplement which consists of superior-quality 74% (fair-trade) cocoa-based chocolate drops. Each delicious chocolate drop contains 150 micrograms (mcg) of iodine (as potassium iodide)…the same stuff you get in iodized table salt, but of course without hurting your heart due to sodium-caused hypertension. Dark chocolate like ours, in fact, seems to be a “heart-helping” product, as many studies indicate. On the cleaning side, Io Products’ soap, mouth-wash and no-fluoride iodized toothpaste are key incidental iodine sources to help our skin and oral cavity fight disease.
Based on formulations proven to be three times as effective as any antimicrobial available today, Io Products has developed an iodine ointment that combines compounds of exceptional effectiveness. Combined, they offer a “triple-antibiotic” regimen that cannot be matched by any product in the market. The ointment is effective for wounds, cuts, abrasions and is both soothing and protective. In addition, this triple antibiotic ointment has been combined with an intense lubricant for pleasurable sex. This lubricant kills on contact all known organisms that cause STDs, and while it should be used in conjunction with condoms, in emergencies it can be used without them. Io Products also produces an anti-tick/anti-flea/anti-infection dog spray which stops ticks and fleas in their tracks, while simultaneously killing the disease organisms they tend to carry. (For example, fleas carry the deadly bubonic plague caused by the bacterium yersinia pestis while ticks carry a dog-form of Lyme disease called “Ehrlichia.”)
We live in a world in which, according to the World Health Organization (quoted in the New York “Times” and Harvard Magazine): “Antimicrobial resistance is a problem so serious that it threatens the achievements of modern medicine. A post-antibiotic era, in which common infections and minor injuries can kill, far from being an apocalyptic fantasy, is instead a very real possibility for the 21st century.”
Iodine produces NO KNOWN antimicrobial resistance. As an adjunctive element, prescribed in additional to “standard of care” pharmaceuticals, Iodine has the potential to reduce the problem of antimicrobial resistance while effectively combating diseases.
