» Lugol's Iodine Solution Background

In 1880, a French physician named Jacques Lugol originated a solution which contains 5 percent of elemental Iodine in a 10 percent solution of Potassium Iodide. It has been used steadily ever since.

» Iodine Health Benefits

A function of Iodine in the human body relates to clear thinking. Iodine is linked with normal cognitive function. This is the process in the brain responsible for memory, attention, learning, reasoning, and decision making.

Not only does Iodine play an important role in the brain, it also contributes to the normal production of thyroid hormones and normal thyroid function.

It is well established that the Iodine content of the thyroid gland is dependent upon the Iodine available in the food and water intake of the individual. If the Iodine intake is low, the gland is deprived of the element it needs to do its work.

If you are having problems with your thyroid, contact your healthcare professional. They can provide thyroid function tests which can identify the cause of your problem.

» Other Iodine Benefits

  • Iodine contributes to the normal growth of children
  • Iodine contributes to the maintenance of normal skin
  • Iodine contributes to normal functioning of the nervous system
  • Iodine also contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism

» Iodine in the Human Body

The human body does not produce Iodine so it is an important part of your diet. Dietary Iodine is the best way to get it into the body. Foods which analysis shows are particularly rich in Iodine include all foods from the ocean, along with: radishes, asparagus, carrots, tomatoes, spinach, rhubarb, potatoes, peas, strawberries, mushrooms, lettuce, bananas, cabbage, egg yolk, and onions

» Iodine Displacement

Iodine is an element belonging to the group on the periodic table known as the Halogens. There is a well-known law of halogen displacement which can cause iodine to be ‘pushed’ out of the body. The halogen group is made up of the following elements, shown with their Relative Atomic Weights:

Fluorine19.0Most Reactive
Chlorine35.5 
Bromine80.0 
Iodine127.0Least Reactive

The critical activity of any one of these four halogens is in inverse proportion to its atomic weight. This means that any one of the four can displace the element with a higher atomic weight, but cannot displace an element with a lower atomic weight. For example, Fluorine can displace Chlorine, Bromine and Iodine because Fluorine has a lower atomic weight than the other three. Similarly, Chlorine can displace Bromine and Iodine because they both have a higher atomic weight, and so on. But the reverse is not possible. Knowledge of this well-known chemical law surely brings into question the addition of Chlorine to our drinking water as a purifying agent. It seems we have a source of drinking water that is harmful to the body, not because of its germ content but because the Chlorine content causes the body to lose it's much-needed Iodine.

Hi, If someone is intolerant to apple cider vinegar can we use Lemon. Does the water have to be acidic or can we just leave it plain?

I believe you can just have the iodine in water (bottled - not tap due to chlorine) and all is good!

Hi. Just wondering if anyone knows how long a break you have to have before you can start taking the iodine again? as it says on the bottle, take 6 drops once a day for 3 weeks. Would be grateful for any feedback. Thanks.

I have been using eutirox 100mg for the last 8yrs for thyroid nodules, i have a full check up once a yr and they are stable and i would like to come off of it! (I do also use natural progesterone cream). however here in italy no-one ever talks about iodine as a solution or the importance that has on us, in my diet i would have hardly ever and as i stubbled on your website by chance and would be interested in buying lugol's drops I would like to know what strength I should buy? and if after a certain amount of time i could then drop the eutirox. I know I need to find a doctor who will consider these alternatives but as i say, in italy it is a problem and i dont know where to start?!

Most recommendations for Iodine supplementation are in mgs of Iodine. I have recently bought Luigols Iodine at 7% concentration from you, How mwany mgs are there per drop of 7% Luigols Iodine solution ?
For example one doctor recommends adult dosage of between 12.5mg to 50mgs how does that translate into drops ?

Hello, my wife has had her thyroid removed (many nodules all benign and encapsulated due to good eating habits) and I would like to know if iodine would be beneficial for her, or would the fact that she has no thyroid to store the iodine be a problem?
Thanks

I don't understand why the figures you quote for iodine and potassium iodide content are less in the 15% solution than the 7% solution

I have been on L-Throxyne for 25 years and my doctor was horrified when I suggested I use iodine about 20 years ago. I would like to try Lugols Iodine Solution as my memory is very bad any information on what strength to start on 3% 7% or 15% and would it interfear with the medication L-Throxyne

"Our Lugols Iodine Solution use a metric dropper - 3.15ml per drop."

That should be 3.15mg i think

Hi there,

Im thinking of buying some Iodine from you. I live in England and want to take it for all round health and protective benefits. Is 30mg per day permantly a safe dosage?

Wow - this is a amazing product! Dont forget the Selenium (200mcgr) that goes very well with this. It will protect your thyroid and help with the T4-T3 conversion.
Also , to keep the iodine from just "Flushing out" , a high dosage of vitamine C is also beneficial. (1-3g). This have really changed alot for me. The clarity of mind , hightened energy level , constant comfort temperature , and a overall sense of well being. I find the dropper to be not working very well tho.. I just do some "Shakes" in a glass of water.. The taste really doesnt bother me anymore.

If you want to have more information about the uses and effects of iodine go here http://tahomaclinicblog.com/iodide/ I found Dr. Wright's information very valuable and useful over the years. The SSKI he talks about provides 50 mg of potassium iodide per drop, which is the same amount a drop of 7% Lugol's Iodine Solution provides. I have used SSKI for skin problems and to fight colds with good results but it is a lot more expensive, so I will change to Lugol's.

If I am not mistaken, a 3% Lugol Solution contains 30g iodine and 60g potassium iodide per liter water. Possium iodide is added to iodine to make it water soluble. That amounts to 3mg iodine per 1 ml, i.e. based on 20 drops per ml, 0.15 mg per drop. The iodide improves the bioavailability of the iodine but is not included in the calculation of total iodine content.

Another great use for Iodine is as a deodorant. Mix 10 - 20 drops in a 100ml bottle of distilled or filtered water (amber glass bottle mist spray). Other users have had great results and so far it has been the most effective deodorant Ive ever used. Even after a tough workout with weights people couldn't smell anything!

One user reports deodorant protection even after 19 hours!

5% solution = 126.5 mg/mL
This about 8 drops would equal 50mg

We have a Boerboel dog ±70kg that has a skin infection in the inside of its paws. Can we use Lugols iodene directly on the skin for quicker results? What dosage can we use? Please help as nothing else that we have tried did not help even medicines from the vet has no effect. It has already cost us a lot of money.
Much appreciated.
regards,
Doreen Beukes.

I don't know anything about dogs but if you do get the go ahead to use Iodine, make sure you use a carrier oil on the skin before. I would recommend coconut oil. If you don't do this, it may irritate the skin. I know it does this in humans, not sure about dogs though.

Hi Doreen, the first thing you need to do is to bath your dog with natural shampoo or liquid castille soap. you can also mix tea tree oil, neem oil, tumeric, honey and coconut oil and apply it to the affected areas. washing your dog very often will also help, like maybe twice or three times a week. (labour of love) I give my dog, a dascshound, which has thyroid problems and an inmunne system disease (had Bullous Penphigoid & Acanthosis nigricans due to undiagnosed Thyroid problem)about three drops of Iodine a day. My whole family also takes it and we have been taking for years. Also it complements well with Maca for hormones and fatigue problems.
