Healing Solutions manufacturer prepares Lugol's in small, controllable batches.
J.Crows prepares their formula in larger 5-10 lb buckets which means less control, sealing not as secure which causes evaporation.
Healing Solutions better cap means NO evaporation or oxidation so solution remains strong and potent. You get a tighter cap, plus a separate dropper!
J.Crows uses dropper cap which does not seal as tight meaning evaporation and oxidation occur. Oxidation weakens the iodine.
The entire body uses iodine and iodide, not just the thyroid. Various tissues and organs are designed to concentrate large amounts that are necessary for their normal structure and function. Conversely, low iodine levels are associated with autoimmune thyroid disease, breast cancer, thyroid cancer, goiter, and fibromyalgia, as well as cysts and nodules of the breast, thyroid, and ovaries.
(Both types of iodine are needed in the body - breast and prostate tissue prefer iodine and thyroid tissues prefer iodide - and both types are available with a Lugol's solution. Other types of iodine formulations have not been shown capable of providing this type of tissue-specific support).
46% Lugol's Iodine Solution in a sturdy 5-ml amber glass dropper vial. Shipped with polyphenol cap, comes with dropper. Contains 46% Iodine crystals (99.8%+) and 92% Potassium Iodide (USP Grade) per 1-ml of solution in pure distilled water. Note: This product is being expressed as 46% w/v to be consistent with other Lugol's products, it is actually 23% w/w but its density is 2X that of water. There are 5.8 GRAMS of triiodide in this 5-ml vial. This is the most concentrated Lugol’s iodine solution at 25-degrees C and is 58-mgs of iodine per drop! This means there is 1.16-grams of iodine per 1-ml. It is recommended not to take more than 6 drops/day (58-mg of iodine/drop), however doses up to 100-mg/day for radioactive Iodine protection are recommended by government agencies. I want to offer this unique product for those that like the strong stuff. Will stain skin for up to 4 days (personal experience). Specially formulated for hikers and backpackers to cut pack-weight. Only one drop per gallon of water is needed to purify translucent natural waters if left standing for 30-minutes at least 60-degees F.
Works well for removing warts and unwanted moles if applied directly, there is nothing else like like it! Accepts no substitutes.
Keep out of the reach of children.
Lugol's iodine, also known as Lugol's solution, first made in 1829, is a solution of elemental iodine and potassium iodide in water, named after the French physician J.G.A. Lugol. Lugol's iodine solution is often used as an antiseptic and disinfectant, for emergency disinfection of drinking water, and as a reagent for starch detection in routine laboratory and medical tests. These uses are possible since the solution is a source of effectively free elemental iodine, which is readily generated from the equilibration between elemental iodine molecules and triiodide ion in the solution.
