Product Overview

Description

  • High Potency
  • Iodine/Potassium Iodide Supplement

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, a population with a very low prevalence of fibrocystic disease of the breast and breast cancer.

Suggested Use

  • Read brochure inside bottle before use.
  • Take one tablet per day or as directed by a physician.

The suggested daily amount is 1-4 tablets/day as recommended by your physician. Work closely with your physician while on the Iodoral program. Report to your physician any history of thyroid surgery and/or radiation, chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis (Hashimoto), and any previous problem with your thyroid. Before starting Iodoral, your physician (He/She = He) will order blood tests for hematology, blood chemistry and thyroid functions. He will also perform an ultrasound of your thyroid to measure the size and appearance of your thyroid. Depending on the results of the thyroid function tests and ultrasound, he may order some blood tests for thyroid antibodies. If you are taking thyroid hormones, let your physician know about it. Be aware that Iodoral enhances the response of your body to thyroid hormones. Subjects on Iodoral feel warmer in cold environments and that is expected. However, you will need to cut down the amount of thyroid hormones if you experience palpitation, anxiety, increased sweating and intolerance to heat. That is because Iodoral decreases your need for thyroid hormones. Your physician will guide you in titrating downward the amount of thyroid hormones. Your physician will reevaluate you one month afterward if you are on thyroid hormones, and 3 months if not. Keep a record of what you observe while on Iodoral and show it to your physician.

To test whole body sufficiency for iodine, 4 tablets of Iodoral are ingested, followed by 24 hr. urine collection. The more deficient a subject is in iodine, the more iodine is retained by the body and the least excreted in the urine. Sufficiency is achieved when 90% or more of the ingested amount is excreted in the urine. In most subjects tested, 3-4 tablets of Iodoral/day were required to achieve whole body sufficiency within 3 months and the body retained approximately 1.5 gm iodine at sufficiency. The best response in patients with FDB was observed with ingestion of 2 tablets twice a day. Check with your physician for more information about the loading test.

Other Ingredients

Micosolle, a silica-based excipient containing a non-ionic surfactant, microcrystalline cellulose, vegetable stearins and pharmaceutical glaze.

Warnings

Store in a cool, dry and dark place.

Potential Side Effects:

  • Acne-like skin lesions in certain areas of your body
  • Headache in the frontal sinus
  • Unpleasant brassy taste
  • Increased salivation and sneezing

If you experience any unusual symptom since starting on Iodoral, contact your physician.

If you have hypothyroidism, worth considering

Posted by Reviewer1199452 on Feb 23, 2017 | Verified Purchase

Iodoral is not available in Canada, so I buy it here as it is essential for those who have hypothyroidism. Do not use DHL shipping.

Awesome IO

Thyroid not working for over 2 yrs. Dec. 2015 Doc insisted I take medication. Med has a lot of side effect, refused to take. I promised Doc in Dec. 2015 that If I cannot find a supplement, I would take his medication my next visit. Daughter found Iodoral, I purchased in Dec. 2015. I took it for 2 weeks, did my blood, result showed that thyroid was and is still functioning correctly, thank God. Have documents for proof. Thanks to the doctor who felt women thyroid pain and did something about it. Thanks. I began to tell women about the good news.

Dr Abraham's contribution to humanity ..

Posted by Reviewer1617056 on Apr 21, 2016 | Verified Purchase

Wasn't it good of Dr Abraham to spend seven years searching through the world literature on iodine to figure out its health benefits ! And then to found the Optimox company to produce Iodoral, iodine taken orally in a pill. A pill which is Lugol's solution in pill form. It was Dr Abraham who first made me aware of the incredible health benefits of iodine to human beings. His articles at Optimox should be read by everyone who wants to understand this. I have been using Iodoral daily for several years. We all do in my family. It gives energy, It detoxifies. It protects against disease. I have the the greatest respect and appreciation for this health pioneer and his Iodoral.
