For years we were able to get the body's iodine requirements through our food. However, with the depletion of iodine in the soil, plants are depleted of the mineral. Genetically modified foods also effect the body's iodine levels, some GMO plants even further deplete iodine levels. Chlorine that is added to municipal water supplies is notorious for depleting iodine levels in the body. People are under the misconception that by drinking bottled water thy are eliminating the problem. Let say it reduces the depletion process. But you must consider that when the body is exposed to water containing chlorine through bathing and showering, the body's iodine levels will still be depleted. The chlorine is absorbed into the skin and has the same effect as drinking the water. It is best to take an iodine supplement to replenish the depleted iodine. Iodine is essential for the normal function of the thyroid which is required for the immune system to function normally. In recent years we have been made aware of numerous food bacterias and microbes, there is a reason, iodine deficiency. Plants need iodine in their photosynthesis for their own immune system for its own defense mechanism to survive these bacterias and microbes. Therefore, since plants are iodine deficient and our bodies are iodine deficient it is essential we get the body's requirement of iodine from other sources. Iodine is also one of the best disinfectants available. Using Lugol's iodine as a vegetable and fruit wash/disinfectant is highly recommended. Water alone does not suffice, especially if you are using municipal water. Using dish soap as a wash does a nominal job, and using bleach or hydrogen peroxide prove to be a much better choice than just water alone. Using the Lugol's iodine solution as a fruit and vegetable cleaner/disinfectant is the best option and highly recommended.

As a food wash or disinfectant add 1-4 drops to 1 liter of water and soak vegetables and fruit for 3-5 minutes. Shake of solution and rinse, we recommend to use distilled or filtered water it has less chemicals than municipal water. Fruits and vegetables are potential sources for food-borene illness. It is essential to take extra care in washing and cleaning your organic fruit and vegetables since that is often fertilized with manure. People eat fruits and vegetables raw, so think about what you are consuming if you do not clean them appropriately you are consuming these bacterias and microbes. Lugol's iodine solution has been used by travelers to foreign lands to wash and clean their fruits and vegetables for decades.

The iodine used in our Lugol's solution is derived from mined ACS grade crystals, not from shellfish or kelp. Iodine is essential to support normal thyroid, pituitary and pancreatic health. Lugol's iodine solution is available in two strengths, 2.2% and 5%. Our Lugol's iodine solution utilizes potassium iodide, not sodium iodide. Sodium iodide is not recommended for people with heart or blood issues. Iodide is different from iodine, iodine is an atom and iodide is an ion.

One to two drops if body weight is 150 lbs. (68 kg.) or less; two to three drops for body weight of more than 150 lbs. Each drop vertical contains 6.25 mg. of iodine. Our iodine is derived from mined iodine crystals.

Fruit/Vegetable Wash
In a clean sink or bowl, add one to two drops of 5% Lugol's per quart of water. If using 2.2% Lugols iodine add two to four drops per liter of water. Dip leafy such as lettuce or spinach for 2-3 minutes and rinse with water. For fruits or vegetables wash the skin using a vegetable bush and then submerge in Lugol's iodine solution wash for 3 to 7 minutes. Always clean your counter area with the Lugols iodine solution wash before you process the fruits and vegetables. Also use the solution to rinse your utensils.

Take two to three times per week such as on Monday Wednesday and Saturday. Take on an empty stomach about 20 minutes before eating in an 8 oz. (236 ml.) glass of distilled or purified water with one tsp. of apple cider vinegar. You can also apply the iodine externally by painting a small area the size of a quarter on the inside of the elbow using the dropper. If you are using the iodine externally it is recommended you apply it daily.
