Lugol's Iodine Benefits
The thyroid (located at the frontal base of the neck) is the key gland that furnishes energy to every cell in your body. Its function is dependent on a balance of nutrients and trace minerals. These include zinc, copper, manganese and especially iodine.
Iodine is an essential nutrient that is needed for the production of the body's thyroid hormones and is therefore required for normal thyroid function. Thyroid hormones are responsible for our basal metabolic rate (BMR), which reflects the body's use of energy.
As well as this, they are needed for:
- Normal growth and development
- Protein synthesis
- Cholesterol synthesis
- Carbohydrate absorption
- Energy metabolism
- Nerve and bone formation
- The condition of the skin, hair, nails and teeth
- Speech and mental state
What happens if you do not have enough iodine in your body?
Iodine deficiency is thought to increase the risk of certain cancers, such as those of the breast, ovary and uterus. Iodine levels may also be low in people with fibrocystic breast problems. Iodine supplementation may help prevent oestrogen from binding to breast cell receptors and may reduce symptoms of breast swelling and pain.
The thyroid gland does not function well in the absence of adequate iodine and trace minerals. Applying tincture of iodine to your skin is the most efficient (as well as most economical) method of determining a metabolic deficiency of iodine. It acts as a test, as well as a treatment.
Iodine and Breast Health
The theory is that an absence of iodine renders the tissue more sensitive to oestrogen stimulation. This hypersensitivity can produce excess secretions, over the limit of absorption, thus distending the breast ducts to produce small cysts and later fibrosis (hardening of the tissue due to the deposition of fibrin, similar to the formation of scar tissue).
Assessment of iodine deficiency has shown that 70% of women may experience softening of the breast tissue and reduction in hardened tissue after using iodine appropriately.

Calculating Number of MG's of Iodine and Iodide per Drop of Lugol's Solution 5%:
- The Iodide portion of Potassium Iodide is about 75% so that is 3.75mg.
