Re: So I made Lugols - What % do I have? & other stuff


This is how Dr. Abraham puts it.

(10th paragraph)

"In the 19th Edition of Remington’s Science and Practice of Pharmacy, published in 1995 (11), the recommended daily oral intake of Lugol 5% solution for I supplementation was between 0.1 and 0.3 ml. This time-tested Lugol solution has been available since 1829, when it was introduced by French physician Jean Lugol. The 5% Lugol solution contains 50 mg iodine and 100 mg potassium iodide per ml, with a total of 125 mg I/ml."

If you multiply through by 1000, then the above could read -- "The 5% Lugol solution contains 50 g iodine and 100 g potassium iodide per 1000 ml." I don't know whether 1000 ml of Lugol's solution weighs 1000 g, but there always seems to be that implication when you see that 50 g iodine divided by 1000 g solution = 5%.

Naming a product according to the percentage of one of the ingredients doesn't change the fact that another ingredient is involved which also gives benefit. One drop of 5% Lugol's = 2.5 mg iodine + 3.75 mg iodide = 6.25 mg iodine/iodide
