What is Potassium Iodide?
Potassium iodide is a compound routinely added to salt to iodize it. Iodine is necessary for normal thyroid functioning and making thyroid hormones.
What is Potassium Iodide for?
Potassium iodide is a source of iodine frequently taken by people exposed to radioactive iodine from leaking nuclear reactors such as Fukushima in Japan. Radioactive iodine results from uranium atoms split apart after being struck by a neutron in a nuclear reactor.
Recently concern lies in more leakage into the water surrounding the reactors and the effects of two further magnitude 5 earthquakes on 8th February 2014 off Japan’s Fukushima area are still being monitored.
Thousands of litres of radioactive water are now being stored by Fukushimo leaking 300 tons into the ocean every day.
Who is Potassium Iodide for?
Potassium Iodide is for people looking to maintain a healthy thyroid.
One drop of Potassium Iodide provides 54 mcg of iodine. Iodine has many functions within the body including:
- contributes to the normal production of thyroid hormones and normal thyroid function
- contributes to normal cognitive function
- contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism
- contributes to normal functioning of the nervous system
- contributes to the maintenance of normal skin
- contributes to the normal growth of children
Potassium Iodide may be recommended for people in the event of a nuclear emergency as it can prevent radioactive iodine from being absorbed.
