As an alternative media viewer like myself, I come across some interesting things not seen in the mainstream media.
Unlike mainstream media alternative media has to find funding from other means such as selling products, donations, or investors.
One of the biggest alternative media sources is Infowars hosted by Alex Jones.
He (Alex) often advertises a product called Survival Shield™ Nascent Iodine which is supposed to:
Supports thyroid health
Supports the immune system
Reduces effects of radiation exposure
Helps balance iodine levels
The Invention of Survival Shield™ & What Sets It Apart
Survival Shield™ is manufactured in a state-licensed facility that meets federal regulatory standards, is cGMP/HACCP-compliant, and lab grade. Raw elemental iodine is a controlled substance both at a State and Federal level. The licensing, approvals and regulatory documentary procedures are exacting and costly.
The production process of Survival Shield™ has a stabilizing effect on the elemental iodine, making it in to a simpler form of nascent iodine.
Bound forms of iodine must first be separated, clarified and purified from other binding components or impurities into a USP-grade (US Pharmaceutical), mono-elemental iodine as certified USP resublimated iodine crystals. In this purified crystal form, iodine is a highly reactive and toxic substance. However, when the purified USP iodine crystals are subjected to a proprietary process it becomes nano-colloidalized and transforms into a form of elemental nascent iodine, also referred to as monoatomic iodine, without the addition of iodides!
Now as you can see in the Infowars video above Alex tells you to “Go and research it yourself” So I did, and found the website GlobalHealingCenter.com. To my surprise the bottle looks exactly the same! Now I’m curious… so lets take a look at Detoxadine™
Detoxadine is sold and endorsed by a Dr. Edward F. Group III of GlobalHealingCenter.com and has a huge list of accomplishments. An Army veteran with two Army achievement medals, a good conduct medal, overseas ribbon, and attended six different universities. You can check it out on his about page.
Detoxadine® is Global Healing Center’s brand of standardized nano-colloidal nascent iodine. It is manufactured with a unique transformative bio-elemental matrix using a revolutionary process to make it more gentle on your digestive system than other iodine supplements.
Intended for human and animal use as a daily, dietary supplement, the nascent iodine in Detoxadine® is an important part of sound metabolic, cardiovascular, liver, bone and CNS health. Iodine is the mineral basis of the HPT (Hypothalamus–Pituitary–Thyroid) Axis, and many believe that the HPT Axis is the underlying basis of the HPA (Hypothalamus–Pituitary–Adrenal) Axis. Proper thyroid and endocrine function are absolutely necessary for the body to perform at the peak of health.
OK, lets compare the two from what we see here!
