PureFormulas carries items from Optimox Corporation's Iodoral Iodine Supplement line. Iodoral is the tablet form of Lugol solution, which is a liquid solution that combines iodide and iodine. Issues with the liquid Lugol solution - has bad taste, stains clothing and causes gastric irritation - prompted researchers and manufacturers like Optimox Corporation to change the product to tablet form, so that it is easier to take. Optimox Iodoral tablets have a pharmaceutical glaze over them to mask the unpleasant taste of iodine. Iodine is an essential element that is mostly linked to thyroid function. It allows the thyroid gland to produce thyroid hormones. Having a severe iodine deficiency can lead to very serious problems like hypothyroidism, developmental brain disorders and goiter (thyroid enlargement). But studies are showing that iodine is good for more than just promoting and supporting a healthy thyroid. In fact, some studies have found a relationship between low iodine levels and fibrosis disease of the breast. However, an excess amount of iodine levels in the body can cause some dangerous issues, so be sure to consult your physician before using this product. PureFormulas is the right place to come for Iodoral Iodine products by Optimox Corporation. And we have different strengths, too, like Iodoral 50mg - all at an affordable price.
