Calculating Number of MG’s of Iodine and Iodide per Drop of LUGOL’S 2%: Each VERTICAL “metric” drop (= 1/20 ml) is approximately 1.0 mg of iodine and 2.0 mg of potassium iodide. The Iodide portion of Potassium Iodide is about 75% so that is 1.5 mg. Therefore the total Iodine plus Iodide is 1.0 + 1.5 = 2.5 mg and 2 drops is about 5.0 mg’s of iodine/iodide (2.0 mg iodine, 3.0 mg iodide). Compared to iodine and potassium iodide tablets.
Approximately 1200 vertical drops per 2 oz. container. To use as a water purifier add 3-6 drops per liter of water.
Made from premium ingredients, the iodine used in J.CROW’S® Lugol’s Solution is derived from mined crystals from 320 million year old natural brine deposits two miles beneath the earth’s surface in Western USA (one of the few places in the world where such deposits exist). Not made from shellfish. The water used is distilled, pure, New Hampshire spring water. Always fresh. Does not expire. Store at room temperature out of direct sunlight. No need to refrigerate.
If you suffer from hypothyroidism please consult with a doctor before taking Lugol’s Iodine! The Thyroid harbors more Iodine than any part of the body – and usually NEEDS it! But for people suffering from low thyroid activity in this condition may suffer energy loss, fatigue, or worsening Thyroid activity from introducing Iodine improperly.
