Nascent Iodine (nano-colloidal) 1 oz. provides a glycerite of mono-element triiodide of the iodine supplement. The thyroid suppression of iodine uptake or trapping caused by reduced mineral salts, such as potassium iodide, sodium iodide, calcium iodide, etc. is known as the Wolff-Chaikoff effect, a phenomenon that has been well studied and elucidated over a period of 70+ years.
The reduced mineral salts of iodides supplements can be very ineffective relative to the high doses given, which may explain why high doses are often recommended to somewhat counter the Wolff-Chaikoff effect. Fortunately, Nascent Iodine from Planet Source is NOT a reduced mineral salts. Instead, it it is a mono element of tri-iodide of iodine, with only the mineral element of iodine being used. This allows for the iodine to be better accepted and utilized by the body. Our supplement is free of alcohol, dairy, soy and gluten. This means that it is gentle on the body.
