Potassium Iodine ( Molecular )
Iodide is the ion state of iodine, occurring when iodine bonds with another element, such as potassium. In this form, iodine can be ingested or applied topically.
Potassium Iodide in moleculor form is most noted for its action in thyroid health and activity.
Iodine accounts for sixty-five per cent of the molecular weight of T4 and fifty-nine per cent of T3. Fifteen to twenty mg of iodine is concentrated in thyroid tissue and hormones.
However, seventy per cent of the body's iodine is distributed in other tissues, including the oral mucosa, salivary glands, thymus, epidermis, mammary glands, eyes, gastric mucosa, the cervix, prostate and choroid plexus. Iodine is thought to be in every cell in the body.
