My husband and I have been taking Lugols
in dosages from 0-100mg daily since 2/20/07.
We have seen all kinds of evidence that we are both absorbing the Lugol's
and that our body's are utilzing it extremely effectively.
We have not taken a loading test as we have no reason to take one.
I feel there is no possible reason why Lugol's
in tablet form with a bit of a 'glaze' on it would be more likely to be absorbed or more effective...in fact I feel just the opposite is true. A liquid can be easily/readily absorbed & utilized; a tablet must be digested.
Also, the liquid can be used for topical applications and all variety of skin painting, treating skin growths, blended with other healing substances, etc. (I used a few drops mixed in water last night as a mouthwash to ease an red/inflamed gum area).
As far as I've read (and obviously, I could have easily missed evidence to the contrary), I have seen nothing but anecdotal stories...which are good 'for consideration' (and help to create a theory to put to 'the test'), but they don't provide proof of anything. For example (I think I'm remembering it correctly), one person reported that another person taking Lugol's for a long time took a loading test and showed very little absorbtion had taken place... but the person took either no Vitamin C or very little (or they didn't know) while taking the Lugol's (Vitamin C is necessary to correct issues if the body is not absorbing iodine). So without knowing if the person took Vitamin C in adequate amounts along with the Lugol's, we can't determine anything.
Now, if they start taking Iodoral WITHOUT using Vitamin C, take a loading test, and then they show absorbtion...well, then you have ONE case where that has happened. But if they take Vitamin C with the Iodoral, then there's no way to know if it was the form of Lugols
(liquid or tablet) or the Vitamin C.
I don't have time to be posting more today, but if you have posts/links I missed 'at the ready' that show several people have valid evidence that they aborbed Iodoral better than Lugol's, I'd LOVE to see it/them.
And that's my logic about that (at this time :),
