WHY WE LOVE POTASSIUM IODIDE
Also known as KI, the compound is a source of iodine as a salt of stable iodine compared to radioactive iodine. It blocks negative effects of radioactive iodine and stabilizes iodine levels in the body.
AMAZING BENEFITS OF POTASSIUM IODIDE
As already mentioned, KI stops the damaging effects of radioactive iodine to set in. It turned out to be an effective solution for radiation poisoning in Chernobyl in 1986 and Japan’s Fukushima incident in 2011.
Combats respiratory tract infections, asthma, bronchitis, and emphysema. Syrup form works extremely well as an expectorant that irritates respiratory mucosa glands directly, allowing the mucous to be released through coughs and excretions.
KI is extremely beneficial in treating thyroid-related issues. It shrinks the thyroid gland and decreases thyroid hormone production. As a radiation emergency treatment, potassium iodide prevents the thyroid from absorbing radioactive iodine, reducing thyroid cancer risk.
