Contains Vitamin D: This important immune-regulating vitamin plays an important role in the maintenance of healthy breast tissue. Breast tissue has receptors for vitamin D for it to bind to. Research has shown that vitamin D may influence the cells in how they develop, divide or die.
Contains iodine: The majority of this mineral is stored in the thyroid gland but a large amount is also found in breast tissue. Iodine may act as an antioxidant in the breast, to reduce damage caused by free radicals.
Contains selenium: This important trace mineral is the precursor to the most powerful antioxidant in the body – glutathione. Selenium may help to reduce inflammation in the body, support a healthy immune system and may help to protect breast tissue.
Contains zinc: Zinc plays an important role in supporting healthy thyroid function and supporting the immune system.
Factors increasing the need for these nutrients: It can be difficult to obtain an adequate amount of these nutrients from the diet alone. This is due to the depletion of minerals in the soil, processing and mass production of foods and poor absorption of vitamins and minerals due to intestinal inflammation.
