My story is mycotoxins (thanks to toxic mold) has taken me out of sports for quite a while but my heart still bleeds for my sports. I miss training everyday and all the hope I had for myself athletic-wise. If I am lucky to be able to push myself again will being on iodine possibly give me any advantages?
I don't consider myself an athlete unless u include cheerleading in high school and being superwoman as a mother, but i have been an avid exerciser for years! Since the age of 16 to be exact. From what i hear, ppl who work out rigorously lose even more minerals and iodine thru sweating and may need to supplement even more to keep saturated.
Since starting iodine, I have gone back to working out daily with no fatigue whereas before, with a cfs and fibro diagnosis, i intended to exercise daily but could push myself two to three times a week and i usually felt like death afterwards.. now i wake up at 5am and sweat and lift and feel awesome! I work out hard too so it isn't like a jog or a few shoulder presses. I am aware that I need my adrenals not to get damaged tho so when I feel sluggish, I only walk or do light cardio...
all that is to say that i truly believe that it will help. i read up here a few times of ppl who are running harder and longer than ever after a few months of iodine. i am only a month in and am doing double the exercise with no problem.
my water weight and fluff is melting away! I am feeling great.
trust me on this, every cat is capable of filling a litter box in no time. that is prima face evidence of an ass if there ever was.
iodine makes everything work better. based upon my own experience and that of others, the specific benefits to athletics would be:
higher energy levels
better reaction time
better muscle control
the ability to build muscle faster
athletes dont need steroids, they just need Iodine so that all of their hormones work better and recovery time is less due to better enzymatic action and higher sustained levels of energy are assisted by a more alkaline pH and increased oxygenation.
i am glad you enjoyed my little joke. but the things i said in this post are serious.
