Nutrimuscle has chosen fucus which is a seaweed rich in iodine. This form provides you with an excellent supply of iodine from a natural plant source and also allows total assimilation by the body. The extract of fucus rich in iodine provides a combined action of alginic acid and iodine.
Iodine is an essential trace element for the proper functioning of our body. In fact, iodine contributes to the production of thyroid hormones which have a regulatory role in metabolism. They are also important for ensuring cell production, the proper functioning of muscles and the nervous system. It is important to provide our body with iodine through food or supplementation because the body cannot store it.
Fight against iodine deficiency
The daily iodine requirement is of the order of 150 micrograms, but for the athlete practicing bodybuilding, the requirements rise to 300 micrograms per day. This is due to the elimination of minerals through sweating experienced during intense training. (1-2). People on a restrictive diet may also have iodine deficiency.

Satiety effect and digestive health
As explained above, wrack leaves a feeling of fullness, which is useful during a low-calorie diet. In addition, the high fiber content of wrack improves digestive health and helps with weight loss. In addition, the high iodine content of fucus helps reduce gastric acidity and therefore heartburn. Iodine also has a great fat-burning effect and may help with constipation.
Fight against fatigue
Wrack is used to fight against the loss of energy, during the winter season for example. The complex carbohydrates (polysaccharides) in wrack have an activating function of the immune system, allowing the body to better defend itself against infections.
