Iodoral 12.5 mg 90 tabs
HIGH POTENCY IODINE/POTASSIUM IODIDE SUPPLEMENT
Iodoral® is a tablet form of Lugol solution. One 12.5 mg tablet of Iodoral® supplies an amount of total elemental iodine comparable to the average daily intake of this essential element by mainland Japanese. Iodoral® tablets are formulated to prevent gastric irritation and the unpleasant taste associated with iodine.
Iodine deficiency is not uncommon. The soils is depleted of this mineral in mountainous regions, locations with frequent flooding, and inland regions of central Asia, Africa, central and eastern Europe, and the Midwest region of the US. While people once maintained iodine adequacy via consumption of iodized salt and milk, many elect to avoid these consumables in their diet, increasing the risk of iodine deficiency.
Administration of iodine/iodide in liquid solution is not very accurate, may stain clothing, has an unpleasant taste and can cause gastric irritation. Iodoral® is a precisely quantified tablet form containing 5 mg iodine and 7.5 mg iodide as the potassium salt. To prevent gastric irritation, the iodine/iodide preparation is absorbed into a colloidal silica excipient (Micosolle®), and to eliminate the unpleasant taste of iodine, the tablets are coated with a thin film of pharmaceutical glaze.
