LifeSource Vitamins

Potassium Iodide is a compound that contains Iodine, a nutrient necessary for normal thyroid function. Iodine in the form of Iodide is an integral part of thyroid hormones, which regulate cellular metabolism and energy production. This product also supplies Potassium, a mineral that is essential for the maintenance of healthy water balance and whole body pH.*

If you are lacking in this mineral, or if you have too much potassium iodide in the thyroid gland, major health concerns can ensue. Potassium iodide has several clear health benefits, and many are related to the functioning of the thyroid.*

Potassium Iodide provides the following health benefits:

Contributes to overall healthy thyroid function*

Potassium iodide is known as the thyroid mineral. It helps in keeping iodine levels in the thyroid in proper balance. When iodine levels are not optimal, it can lead to both hyper or hypothyroidism, two conditions whereby the thyroid gland produces too much or too little iodine. For this reason, potassium iodide acts as a powerful treatment and preventative mechanism for both forms of thyroid disorder through a mechanism of counteracting any less-than-optimal iodine levels due to dietary deficiencies. Potassium iodide also boosts colloid accumulation in the thyroid follicles, contributing to healthy functioning in the important gland.*

Surgical preparation

This mineral is also used prior to thyroid surgery as a preparatory mineral for the gland by reducing thyroid vascularity.*

Arthritis prevention

Iodine deficiency may be related to arthritis, and potassium iodide may help prevent this. *

Hormone balance

Iodine deficiency has also been related to emotional disorders and malfunctioning glandular systems, and weight gain associated with hormonal imbalance. Dr. David Brownstein also believes that iodine deficiency may be linked to breast, ovarian, uterus and prostrate cancers and cysts.*

Acts as an overall expectorant

This form of potassium stimulates the salivary glands, creating a moisturizing expectorant for treating coughs. It acts as a treatment for most respiratory tract conditions like asthma, bronchitis and emphysema, through a mechanism of reducing mucus viscosity and through augmenting respiratory tract secretions.*

Acts as a protector against harmful radiation exposure

Significant studies show that potassium iodide offers a clear protective mechanism against radiation. It does this through its ability to prevent the thyroid gland from absorbing the harmful radio-active isotopes of iodine that are released through radiation. In the event of a nuclear event, the use of potassium iodide as a deterrent is crucial, as it can reduce the risk of thyroid cancer and other future diseases associated with the thyroid.*

Reduces chances of developmental problems

Many developing countries use potassium iodide supplements to reduce the occurrence of growth and development problems, such as goiters, Hashimoto’s Disease, miscarriage, Graves’ Disease, generalized fatigue and impaired immune system function. In fact, The World Health Organization has stated that iodine deficiency is the biggest cause of mental retardation on a global scale.*

Detoxification properties

Potassium iodine also aids the body in detoxification, filtering out harmful mercury, fluorides, chlorides, and bromides from our tissues and cells.

Acts as an anti-fungal

Saturated solutions of potassium iodide have been shown to be effective in treating external forms of cutaneous sporotrichosis, a fungal infection that leads to lesions on the skin.
