In mice the greatest effects occurred when indium and rhodium were fed, all four essential trace metals exhibiting raised levels principally in kidney but also in heart and spleen.

This invention relates to the use of indium and its absorbable compounds in trace amounts administered orally for the normalization and/or enhancement of the activity of the thyroid gland and an increased detoxification rate of the liver. Indium, as a supplement, is quite similar to the essential trace elements in that it has a rather narrow "concentration window". Above the window, undesirable side effects are realized.
