Medisca Lugol`s Solution. Strong Iodine solution
In 1829 a French physician, named Lugol, originated a solution, which contains 5% of elemental iodine in a 10% solution of potassium iodide. It has been used steadily ever since it was originated. Lugol`s iodine is a form of elemental iodine, which may be helpful in hypothyroidism and goitre caused by insufficient iodine intake. It has also been reported to assist with other hypothyroidism symptoms such as:
Coldness of the body`s extremities
There is one downside to this product. It has a very unique metallic taste. Some people find it offensive, while others have no problem with the taste.
For general health on a daily basis, add two drops or 12.5 mg. to your 8 oz. glass of water, apple juice or apple cider in the morning.
This product does not come with a dropper.
Dr. Brownstein M.D suggests starting at 6 mg. and gradually increasing to 50 mg. dosage daily.
6.25mg Iodine per drop.
2 drops= 12.5 mg
3 drops= 18.75 mg
4 drops= 25 mg
8 drops= 50 mg
16 drops=100 mg
20 drops=125 mg
Always hold your dropper in a vertical position. If you make drops holding the dropper on a slant the drops will be bigger.
DO NOT use Lugol`s Iodine solution if you have an overactive thyroid or hyperthyroidism.
Iodine treatment is for an under active thyroid gland only.
If in doubt, please get your thyroid hormone levels checked before using lugol`s solution.
