Thousands of skinny, weak, worn-out, run- clown men and women who are nervous, sick aod ailing hardly realize their principal trouble is very frequently iodine starved glands. When i these e l a n d s , particularly the glands which control weight a n d s t r e n g t h building, lack natural iodine (do not confuse this ordinary chemical iodini which oftentimes is toxic), even diets rich in fats and starches fail to add weight and produce strength and energy. That's why skinny, worn-out, tired folks often have huge appetites and yet the food they eat does themlittlc good. Only when the'system gets an adequate supply of iodine can you regulate metabolism--the body's process of converting digested food into firm flesh, new strength and energy.
