Iodoral is the original high potency iodine supplement. Iodoral is a tablet form of Lugol’s solution, a time-tested preparation with a proven track record for over 150 years. Iodoral is an easy-to-take scored tablet containing 2.5 mg of iodine and 3.75 mg of iodide as the potassium salt.
To avoid gastric irritation, the iodine/iodide preparation is absorbed into a colloidal silica excipient, and a thin coating eliminates the unpleasant taste associated with other iodine supplements.*
Iodine is an essential element. One 6.25 mg tablet of Iodoral supplies an amount of total elemental iodine comparable to the average daily intake of this essential element by mainland Japanese. It has been shown that Japanese women living in Japan consume a daily average of 13.8 mg total elemental iodine, and it has been suggested this is an important factor for supporting health.*
