Liquid iodineIodine can be taken by mouth or on skin. I draw a # pattern on my inner wrist every 3 days with the iodine and it absorbs well as a supplement. You can also use this method and see how fast it absorbs to assess for deficiency. Please leave a thumbs up if this review was useful :)
i prefer Lugols forumula but this one is solid and this one you can find in stores sometimes especially Natural Grocers. the main point is that is a high dose iodine (in milligrams) which is what all iodines should be. a seaweed salad provides around 12 mg. however all iodine supplments are in micrograms and will do nothing for you. that is because the RDA is set low because the powers that be want you sick, not healthy. why do you think the main supplement doctors push is calcium! calcium causes heart disease. research that. anyways start with only 1 drop of this and slowly work your way up. if you get heart palpitations that means you have a sluggish thyroid that this supplement is kicking into gear. stop, take a break, then start at a lower dose where you don't get symptoms. consult a naturopath if necessary
This is very long lasting supplement that literally lasts for years. So the size is excellent. One drop a day is enough to avoid deficiency. But take care of adrenal deficiency before supplementing this. As thyroid hormones are second in line when it comes to HPA axis functioning. If adrenals are not working fine you deplete them even further with iodine that boosts thyroid functioning.
I've used this brand of iodine for about 7 years. I take it daily after researching iodine deficiency. I used to get fingernail infections on a regular basis and read that if there's iodine present when the blood filters through the thyroid, then the iodine kills the fungus. I very rarely get fingernail infections anymore since using this. I'm very happy with this brand.
They are right when they say, you can't get enough iodine from natural sources today and not enough people realising the importance of that mineral. For example, my whole life, my body retained water and because of that, you look like you've gained weight, like fat and it is annoying. It took me some time to realize it is thyroid, because I didn't have any other symptoms. This one is excellent, two drops daily solves the problem and it lasts for 5-6 months.
After a few years gaining a few extra annoying kilos, and being cold all the time, I started to suspect that my thyorid wasnt working effectively. After two weeks with 5-10 drops a day, I noticed I have lost weight without even putting in any effort. After two weeks I have been taking 1 drop a day, and my weight is back to normal, how it was a few years ago. :) I´m not longer cold anymore, and I have noticed my skin is less dry.
Unlike a sodium or potassium iodide Iosol becomes a free iodine which is much easier to absorb and assimilate. Iosol is a high potency iodine and can be used with impunity. Iosol is used in clinics as a dietary food supplement to raise the metabolism and support the thyroid. Iosol is nontoxic and water-soluble.
