I m taking Iodine for a different reason (Candida) but i can answer. I think Iodoral (Iodine capsules) have more benefits than lugols. In my case, i need high shot of iodine/iodide to get an effect. I have a die'off effect at 100mg if i take a Lugol solution and 60mg if i take iodoral tables. I don*t know why but iodoral is more efficient on my body. After this intake i have my nose sneezing and blast of dead filaments that float in my eyes.
Furthermore, with iodoral, it is easier to really quantify your intake because iodoral 12.9mg is a real standardized iodide/iodine amount in tablets. I m not sure if it is the same with the Lugol solution maker. I forgot to say I bought Lugol 15% because i live in Europe.
Then, you have the aftertaste. I definitely appreciate the iodoral tablets because there is no aftertaste because i have a beefy hypersensitive tongue because of candida. So, it is very well appreciated.
At the beginning, i thought a liquid would be more efficient on my body but it is not the case.
I do question the amount of iodine/iodide amount in drops published in many website. i have also another way to check the Iodide density in lugol or iodoral caps. That is the salty taste on my tongue. It shows there is potassium salt.
The salty taste is very strong after 8 * 12.5mg caps
On the other hand, i didn't feel this salty taste after 13 drops of 15% lugol solution (7.29mg per drop). However it should be the same.
At the end, iodoral is pricey but it is efficient. I think i will continue iodoral and use lugol as maintenance when i will feel better.
