Are you aware of just how important iodine is for our health? This trace element is integral to the healthy functioning of the human body: it plays a role in regulating body temperature, reproduction, growth, general metabolism, the formation of blood cells, the development of the nervous system and even heart function!
Too little iodine can lead to enlargement of the thyroid gland and impaired thyroid function, which in turn can result in cardiac disorders (palpitations) and weight problems. It is thus essential to ensure a balanced intake of iodine, taking care to check its provenance in order to ensure an adequate content. It’s worth noting that 2-3% of the population suffers from hypothyroidism, the main symptoms of which are weight gain, fatigue, muscle weakness, brittle hair and nails and increased sensitivity to cold. Such individuals are normally deficient in iodine, have poor pituitary gland function or suffer from auto-immune diseases.

Forskolin is an extract of the ayurvedic herb Coleus forskohlii. It re-sensitises cell receptors by activating the enzyme adenylate cyclase and by increasing the amount of cyclic AMP (adenosine monophosphate) in cells. Cyclic AMP is a signal-carrier which is essential if cells are to react correctly to hormonal stimulation. Cyclic AMP is necessary for intracellular transmission in the hypothalamo-pituitary axis and for feedback control in hormone production. Restoring sensitivity of the hypothalamus and peripheral receptors enables hormones and other bio-energetic factors to work more effectively. It is not enough to simply restore correct hormone levels within the body - hormonal receptors also need to be sensitive and react effectively to stimuli.
Forskolin also lowers intra-ocular blood pressure: a number of studies have shown it to be effective in treating glaucoma. Other benefits have been reported in the treatment of hypertension, asthma, eczema, psoriasis and angina pe ...
