Our Lugol’s Solution is 10% Potassium Iodide and 5% Iodine. And it contains approximately 6 mg of Iodine per drop.It is a Crystal, and not a seaweed, product.
Lugol's Iodine, also known as Lugol's Solution, first made in 1829, is a solution of elemental iodine and potassium iodide in water, named after the French physician J.G.A. Lugol. Lugol's iodine solution is often used as an antiseptic and disinfectant, for emergency disinfection of drinking water, and as a reagent for starch detection in routine laboratory and medical tests. These uses are possible since the solution is a source of effectively free elemental iodine, which is readily generated from the equilibration between elemental iodine molecules and triiodide ion in the solution.
It has been used more rarely to replenish iodine deficiency. Likewise, in the Chernobyl disaster some Lugol's solution was used as an emergency source of iodide to block radioactive iodine uptake, simply because it was widely available as a drinking water decontaminant, and pure potassium iodide without iodine (the preferred agent) was not available.
Our Lugol's Solution contains 10% Potassium Iodide and 5% Iodine in an aqueous solution. This is the correct combination of Iodine and Potassium Iodide to be called Lugol's Solution. It was first developed by French physician Dr. Jean Lugol in the 1820s, hence the name.
SELF-TEST FOR IODINE DEFICIENCY
Lugol's Solution can be used to determine whether someone has an iodine deficiency and is a simple way to supplement iodine through the skin. This can be done by painting iodine on different parts of the body. The size of the patch should be the same as the size of the patients palm. Wait for 24 hours to see if the iodine absorbs. If the yellowish stain disappears within this time, it means your body is lacking crucial iodine and has soaked it all up. In this case, you need to continue painting the iodine every day until it stops absorbing and your body will tell you how much it needs.
Children enjoy smiley faces and fun pictures painted on their skin. Please hashtag us in any fun pics as we reckon this is a very cool idea indeed!!!!
It is not necessary to supplement Lugol's orally, as the skin is an organ and will also help you identify how much you need. If you wish to take Lugols orally, we recommend you speak with your health care practitioner first.
