    Source Naturals Potassium Iodide 240 Tablets 

     

    Source Naturals Potassium Iodide may be used when it is desirable to maintain a high level of beneficial iodides in the thyroid gland.  Iodide is a form of iodine that is preferentially taken up by the thyroid gland.  This product also supports the body's normal detoxification processes, including the removal of heavy metals.
     

     
    Radioactive iodine (I131) is one of several dangerous isotopes disseminated into the air, soil, and water following an atomic explosion or a nuclear reactor disaster. Iodine is an element that your thyroid avidly absorbs from your bloodstream because it is needed to synthesize thyroid hormones. Unfortunately, your thyroid cannot distinguish between radioactive iodine and normal iodine.

    If you are exposed to aerosolized I131, you inhale it into your lungs, and it quickly enters your bloodstream. If you consume contaminated water or food, I131 is absorbed from your gut and makes its way to your thyroid. This type of internal contamination can cause immediate illness or even death if the radiation exposure is high enough. Usually, however, internal exposure causes problems (cancer is the dreaded complication of radiation exposure) many months or years after the initial event.

    Potassium iodide helps to limit internal contamination

    Your thyroid's ability to absorb iodine is limited, but, on any given day, it usually has many unoccupied sites available for iodine storage. Once its capacity is reached, it stops collecting iodine from your bloodstream.

    Since your thyroid cannot tell the difference between the various isotopes of iodine, any empty storage sites can be filled with either radioactive I131 or stable, non-radioactive iodine. KI is a stable form of iodine. If you begin taking KI immediately following a nuclear event, the stable iodine atoms will compete with radioactive iodine for absorption, and your thyroid will accumulate a lower radioactive load.

     
    Directions

    Adults take 1 to 4 tablets per day and children take 1 to 2 tablets per day for no more than 10 days.  For maintaining beneficial levels of iodide in the thyroid, use the maximum daily dose.  Do not use for more than 10 days without consulting a physician.  Use only according to these directions.
