Item Catalog Number: 01002

Iodine is an essential element. Although its main function is in the production of thyroid hormones by the thyroid gland, other organs in the body have a need for iodine in order to function normally.(4)

Several investigators have shown convincing evidence for the need for adequate iodine intake.(6) Japanese women living in Japan consumed a daily average of 13.8 mg total elemental iodine and some research suggests this is an important factor for their relative health.(6) In the 1960's, one slice of bread in the USA contained the full RDA of 0.15 mg iodine. Over the last 2 decades, iodine was replaced by bromine in the bread making process. Bromine may block thyroid function and may interfere with iodine in the body.(4),(7)

The RDA limits for vitamins and minerals were established after World War II. One of the last essential elements included in the RDA system was iodine, established in 1980 and confirmed in 1989.(8) The RDA for iodine was based on the amount of iodine/iodide needed to prevent goiter, extreme stupidity and hypothyroidism.(9) The optimal requirement of the whole human body for iodine has never been studied. Therefore, the optimal amount of this element for physical and mental wellbeing is unknown. Based on demographic studies, the mainland Japanese consumed an average of 13.8 mg daily and they are one of the healthiest people on planet earth.(6)

Iodoral®
is a precisely quantified tablet form containing 5 mg iodine and 7.5 mg iodide as the potassium salt. To prevent gastric irritation, the iodine/iodide preparation is absorbed into a colloidal silica excipient, and to eliminate the unpleasant taste of iodine, the tablets are coated with a thin film of pharmaceutical glaze.(10)

Frequently asked questions

How much Iodoral should I take?

Typical use is 1 tablet a day, but it depends on the individual needs of the body. The Japanese diet includes an average of 13.7 mg of iodine per day. The literature also mentions a dose of 150 mg per day in justified cases. It is best to consult with someone experienced in the use of iodine.

Should other ingredients be used with Iodoral?

It is absolutely necessary to prepare the body for iodine supplementation - mainly the thyroid gland. The most important ingredient is selenium. In addition, you should supplement vitamin B2 and B3, magnesium, zinc and vitamin A and vitamin D, which is important in the processes of iodine storage in the body.

What are the benefits of using Iodoral instead of Lugol's?

The tablet is kinder to the stomach by applying a pharmaceutical coating. It is also easier and more precise to dose. In addition, each tablet has a score in the center that allows you to break it for even more precise dosing, or to reduce the single volume of the tablet to make it easier to swallow, although the tablet is really small.

What is Iodoral?

Iodoral is the tablet version of Lugol's solution. It contains elemental iodine and potassium iodide. It comes in two versions: 12.5 mg and 50 mg. The 12.5 mg version is packaged with 90 and 180 tablets, and the 50 mg version is packaged with 30 and 90 tablets.
