Hello there,been using Lugol
5 % close to 6 weeks now.
Now remember that BOTH of Iodine
are needed.The Lugol
must be of the 5% solution,that is the STRONG solution where each ml(millimeter) has 50 mg of iode and 100 mg of potassium iodide.
The recommended dosage is 0,1 ml to 0,3 ml 3 times per day
I am using Lugol
drops in DISTILLED WATER which I consider to be more potent..(a least the effects on me)
I am at currently 10 drops per day- taken once in the morning..
I do see some effects like it is curing my baldness to a degree and turning my gray hairs into black for starters..More alert in the morning,better mental clarity,etc..its effects are similar to gingseng or royal jelly..
Simples questions here 1- has anyone taken the dosage of 0,9 ml of Lugol 5% per day ? [ 0,5ml= 15 drops or so]
2-does this Lugol come from marine algae or from a chemical process exclusively ?
3-the Japanese do eat the equivalent of 50 mg of iodine/iodide per day or so BUT they injest all of the Iodine
4-too much Lugol can turn your skin yellow ?(or a cheap way to become Chinese -humm,yep a bad Imus joke)- I was told that my skin was becoming yellow,thus...
Note-when I went to a drugstore the pharmacist told em that my thyroid would explode/go haywire(!) if I took more than 150 mcg per day ! Told her that the Japanese were eating the equivalent of about 50 mg per day but to no avail..Who was I a non scientist/health professional to tell her about it !Hence I bought it at another pharmacist..
