Product Description

Lugol’s Iodine is made of potassium iodide (10%) and elemental iodine (5%) with water (85%).

Iodine has received a lot of attention due to the recent Fukushima catastrophe since Iodine supplements can help protect against thyroid damage by radioactive iodine.

Iodine is mostly is mostly found in the thyroid gland situated in the neck area (about 70 – 80%). The rest is distributed throughout the body, particularly in the ovaries, muscles, and blood. Iodine is an essential component of the thyroid hormones thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). It is almost entirely used by the thyroid gland. The thyroid gland controls metabolism, proper growth, helps burn up excess fat and gives you more energy.

A deficiency of iodine can lead to hypothyroidism (low thyroid hormone levels); symptoms of this condition include sluggishness, weight gain, and sensitivity to temperature changes. In infants and children, hypothyroidism can impair physical and mental development.

Radioactive Iodine is also absorbed by the thyroid gland where it can damage or kill the gland and lead to thyroid cancer. If, however, the thyroid is already saturated with non-radioactive iodine, no further iodine can be absorbed. However this requires you to take iodine shortly before, or immediately after exposure. Iodine clears the thyroid within 24 hours.

Please note that iodine supplements can’t prevent radioactive iodine entering your body, can’t repair any damage to the thyroid that may already have occurred, and won’t remove any radioactive iodine from your system.

Regular serving size: 1 drop
Note:Each drop (with the dropper held vertical) contains 6.25 mg of iodine. If the dropper is tilted it will more or less double the amount, so please keep the dropper vertical.

If you are taking iodine for radiation protection we recommend about 100mg/day for a few days to saturate the thyroid gland, followed by a daily maintenance dose of 20mg

This bottle contains at least 2 months supply [for regular serving size].
