The process of making Lugols Tablets is overseen by the scientist who created this formula and it is made in small batches to ensure quality.
Lugols Tablets come in several milligram strengths, catering to every individual’s need.
Each strength of Lugols Tablets contains the ideal ratio of iodine and potassium iodide.
When formulating Lugols Tablets, the goal was to improve upon the existing Iodoral recipe. Iodoral’s formula includes Micosolle, a binder containing Polysorbate 80, an ingredient which is not necessary for iodine absorption. Lugol Tablets do not contain Micosolle, Iodoral does have this binder.
Lugols Tablets are not coated in a pharmaceutical glaze. The glaze was found to be unnecessary because it has no effect on ingredient release or absorption and is just another unnecessary ingredient. Iodoral does have this glaze.
Lugols Tablets are free of dyes, gluten, dairy, corn, sugar, nuts, and GMOs.
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
Several studies have demonstrated a relationship between low iodine intake and fibrocystic disease of the breast (FDB), both in women and laboratory animals The minimum amount of iodine required for control and prevention of FDB is equivalent to 0.1mg/kg body weight/day. For example, for a 50 kg woman, the daily amount of iodine would be 5 mg. The thyroid gland needs iodide to function properly. The original study done 80 years ago to control goiter in adolescent girls used 9 mg iodide daily.
During the early 1900's, the iodine/iodide Lugol solution was used extensively, effectively and safely in medical practice, for both low activities and above normal activity of the thyroid gland The recommended daily intake for iodine supplementation was 2 to 6 drops of Lugol solution containing 12.5 to 37.5 mg total iodide. That amount was mentioned as lately as 1995 in a book on Pharmaceutical Sciences Several investigators have shown convincing evidence connecting inadequate iodine intake and breast women living in a daily average of 13.8 mg total elemental iodine and they experience one of the lowest prevalence (risk) for breast, ovarian and uterine cancer. In the 1960's, one slice of bread in the USA contained the full RDA of 0.15 mg iodine. The risk for breast cancer was then 1 in 20 Over the last 2 decades, iodine was replaced by bromine in the bread making process. Bromine blocks thyroid function and may interfere with the anticancer effect of iodine on the breast (4). Now, the risk for breast cancer is 1 in 8 and increasing 1% per
