DESCRIPTION Lugol's iodine, also known as aqueous iodine and strong iodine solution, is a solution of potassium iodide with iodine in water. The iodine used in our Lugol's solution is derived from mined crystals (ACS grade, which is the purest). Lugol's iodine solution is available in two strengths, 2.2% and 5%. We use potassium iodide, not sodium iodide to make our Lugols iodine solution. Sodium iodide is not recommended for people with heart or blood issues. Iodide is different from iodine, iodine is an atom and iodide is an ion and is easily absorbed by the body. The benefits of potassium iodide (KI) is recognized by the FDA. KI (potassium iodide) is a salt of stable (not radioactive) iodine that can help block radioactive iodine from being absorbed by the thyroid gland, thus protecting this gland from radiation injury. The thyroid gland is the part of the body that is most sensitive to radioactive iodine Iodide is the ion state of iodine, occurring when iodine bonds with another element, such as potassium. ... So iodine and iodide are simply different expressions of the same element. Iodides simply represent a safe form of iodine for ingestion.
IODINE DEFICIENCY The body does not produce the mineral iodine, so it must be attained through our consumption of foods or with supplements. There are numerous factors that deplete iodine levels, such as chlorine and fluoride in our water. STRUCTURE/FUNCTION STATE MENT *SUPPORTS THYROID HEALTH
