Clinicians Iodine Oral Drops (4% dilution) is a dilution of the original Lugol's Iodine designed to support thyroid function. Iodine is an essential nutrient for the production of the body's thyroid hormones and is therefore required for normal thyroid function. The thyroid hormones are responsible for our basal metabolic rate (BMR), which reflects the body's use of energy. The thyroid hormones are also needed for normal growth and development, protein synthesis, cholesterol synthesis, carbohydrate absorption, energy metabolism, nerve and bone formation, reproduction, the condition of the skin, hair, nails and teeth, and our speech and mental state.
Adults take 1 drop daily or as otherwise directed. The iodine drop can be taken in a glass of fruit juice or other acidic drink (i.e. add 1 tablespoon of cider vinegar to a glass of water) and sip the drink throughout the course of the meal.
