|Potassium Iodide USP (KI) |
Pharmaceutical Pure - Manufacture Date: March 16th, 2011
Potassium Iodide (KI) may be used when it is desirable to maintain a high level of beneficial iodides in the thyroid gland. Iodide is a form of iodine that is preferentially taken up by the thyroid gland. This product also supports the body's normal detoxification of environmental, metabolic, gastrointestinal and respiratory acids, including the removal of heavy metals. Potassium Iodide helps shield (or block) the absorption of harmful radioactive iodine by the thyroid following a nuclear emergency.
Potassium iodide is a salt, similar to table salt. Its chemical symbol is KI. It is routinely added to table salt to make it iodized. Potassium iodide, if taken in time and at the appropriate dosage, blocks the thyroid gland's uptake of radioactive iodine and thus could reduce the risk of thyroid cancers and other diseases that might otherwise be caused by exposure to radioactive iodine that could be dispersed in a severe nuclear accident.
• Potassium iodide is a blocker of thyroid radio-iodine uptake.
