Our Lugol’s Solution is 10% Potassium Iodide and 5% Iodine. And it contains approximately 6 mg of Iodine per drop and it is a crystal and not a seaweed product.
Lugol's iodine, also known as Lugol's solution, first made in 1829, is a solution of elemental iodine and potassium iodide in water, named after the French physician J.G.A. Lugol. Lugol's iodine solution is often used as an antiseptic and disinfectant, for emergency disinfection of drinking water, and as a reagent for starch detection in routine laboratory and medical tests. These uses are possible since the solution is a source of effectively free elemental iodine, which is readily generated from the equilibration between elemental iodine molecules and triiodide ion in the solution.
It has been used more rarely to replenish iodine deficiency. Likewise, in the Chernobyl disaster some Lugol's solution was used as an emergency source of iodide to block radioactive iodine uptake, simply because it was widely available as a drinking water decontaminant, and pure potassium iodide without iodine (the preferred agent) was not available....from Wikipedia
Please note due to TGA rules we are not allowed to recommend our Lugols Iodine for internal or external use as it is labeled as a schedule 6 poison and not a schedule 2 therapeutic product. This is not due to the quality or ingredients, it is due to the way the Poison schedule is written.
10% Potassium Iodide and 5% Iodine in an aqueous solution
Our Lugol's Solution contains 10% Potassium Iodide and 5% Iodine in an aqueous solution. This is the correct combination of Iodine and Potassium Iodide to be called Lugol's Solution. It was first developed by French physician Dr. Jean Lugol in the 1820s, hence the name.
