Lugol’s Iodine: The Body’s Immunity Needs Iodine

The body’s need for iodine is known, as well as its deficiency in relation to disease. Years ago, we obtained sufficient iodine from our food, however, now food and farmland are iodine-deficient, thus weakening one of the primary mechanisms of defense. A primary cause of disease/illness in the body is pathogen microorganisms. With sufficient iodine in the thyroid, pathogens are made weaker and most are destroyed as they pass through. But the vast majority of people do not have enough iodine in their body for the thyroid to function optimally. Iodine deficiency can easily be reversed with supplementation to negate many of its health conditions and disorders.

Destroys Vicious Stomach Bacteria

Lugol’s taken internally in addition to replenishing the thyroid, also brings amazing relief and a calming, soothing, peaceful state to anxiety and a manic stage. It destroys vicious stomach bacteria, (especially salmonella), against gas, bloating, indigestion, heartburn. Doomed are harmful bacteria and parasite eggs. It is 100% safe (except if allergic) to take regularly, but only use as needed.

Most of us are Deficient in Iodine

Lugol’s iodine is old-fashioned iodine and years ago was used for treating various illnesses. It has a distinctive trait – it hangs up on everything. In the stomach, it attaches to vicious salmonella, bacteria, parasite eggs and they are doomed. The thyroid is the organ most capable of absorbing iodine. Pathogenic microorganisms, the primary cause of disease, are made weaker and most are killed as they pass through the thyroid, provided, it has its normal supply of iodine. Clinical studies show that very few people have enough iodine in their thyroid to function optimally. This deficiency has occurred in the 20th century because of chlorine in drinking water, the alteration of natural food sources and modern farming practices. Aggravating the problem is that the body does not conserve iodine, therefore, we must get a regular supplemental intake to maintain optimal health.

The Thyroid, Iodine and Disease Prevention

The role of the thyroid gland has been understood for some time now. Although conventional medicine places emphasis on its contribution to regulating the body’s metabolism and equally important role is its contribution to the immunological health and body.

This organ’s thyroid cells are the ones in the body capable of absorbing iodine, an important mineral nutrient and potent germ killer. Though 80% of the less than 25 mg. of iodine in the body is found elsewhere primarily in muscle and bone, the thyroid has a concentration of iodine that is over 1000 times greater than that found in muscle tissue. In terms of immunology, the thyroid gland acts a gatekeeper: every 17 minutes all the blood in the body passes through the thyroid, where this gland’s secretion of iodine kills germs that have come into the body (through absorption of food in the digestive tract, skin injury, respiratory intake, etc.) Pathogenic micro-organisms, the primary causative agent disease for the body, are made weaker during their passage through the thyroid gland. With every “17 minute passage” they are made still weaker until most are killed, provided the thyroid has its normal supply of iodine.

2011 update March 15th — Wall Stree Journal…Supplies of potassium iodide, a preventive against radiation poisoning of the thyroid gland, are running low at some manufacturers, as Americans seek protection amid fears that radiation from Japan could head to the U.S., according to the companies.

This supplement is packaged in brown glass bottles to preserve the potency of this iodine. Another term for Magnascent iodine is “Atomodine” iodine.

Iodine: Why You Need It by Dr David Brownstein MD, is a good book to explain the iodine deficiency in the world.

What is Magnascent Iodine? And What Does It Do?

    This Amazing New Product Will
    * Increase Your Energy
    *  Help Your Body Heal Faster
    *Pump Up Your Immune System    * And much more!

Magnascent Iodine is made from super charged Iodine. With a secret recipe that scholars and scientist the world over have and are testing with exciting results.

72% of the world, including the United States, is Iodine deficient.

Why are People Deficient in Iodine?

It has been assumed that, since the iodination of salt was implemented, iodine disorders would be a thing of the past. But due to the poor availability of iodine in salt as well as declining salt intake by the population, this is not the case.

There are additional reasons why iodine deficiency disorders are still present today. Due to poor farming techniques, deficiencies of iodine and other minerals in the soil have increased. Crops grown in iodine deficient soil will be deficient in iodine. The stigma of salt causing high blood pressure has convinced people not to use salt in their food. Often the only iodine one gets from their diet is found in salt. A low- salt diet can naturally lead to an iodine-deficient state.

It is easy to use!

Just drop 3 to 5 droplets
into a quarter cup of water.
Morning and Early Afternoon — The curezone.con has an iodine forum and I found this entry there:

A sufficient supply of iodine is crucial for endogenous synthesis of thyroid hormones and for the normal function and morphology of the thyroid. The World Health Organization documents that adults require 150 – 300 µg iodine per day. Up to now, this goal has not yet been met. Insufficient iodine supply is a probable cause of disease which can lead to endemic goiter and in extreme cases to congenital cretinism.

The essential building blocks to health are clean water, natural salt, soda and iodine. From these four building blocks iodine seems to be the least understood and most neglected. Nascent Iodine is extremely important for absorbability into the body’s system. MAGNASCENT ™ , through a proprietary process, accomplishes this critical process making MAGNASCENT ™ 99 percent bio-available into the bloodstream. Its main function is to provide the required element for the thyroid gland, which is the center of the immune system in the human body. The thyroid gland impacts all of the glands in the body, which regulates all the other systems directly. When the thyroid is operating properly, the RESOLVE is restored and VITALITY returns. Many long standing health conditions may vastly improve or completely reverse when iodine is properly supplied to the body.

Nascent Iodine

Nascent Iodine is totally different from the typical iodine in its denser state sold as an antiseptic, or as iodine tri-chloride (claiming to be atomized), or as added to potassium iodine to make it safer. It is also unlike glandular or prescriptions containing hormones that take over the thyroid’s job, instead of nutritionally building the thyroid to do its own job. Seaweed, seafood, greens, raw sunflower seeds, are good sources of iodine, but may not have the levels necessary to support the thyroid fully for good homeostasis in the body. Sources from seaweed may contain certain levels of arsenic. MAGNASCENT ™ is considered nascent iodine, not detoxified iodine.

Difference between Nascent Iodine and Detoxified Iodine

Detoxified Iodine – A brand name that for many years has been produced at 10 amps of resistance for five minutes with a high volume of iodine. An Iodine process that according to Edgar Cayce gives the molecule of iodine additional energy making it easier to assimilate into the body.

Nascent Iodine – A scientific term for iodine that can have a huge energy release. To produce iodine in the pre-nascent state a ten gallon electrolytic bath can have only 8 ounces of iodine (1 ounce per gallon of liquid) for 15 minutes at 30 amps of resistance. This takes much longer and is more difficult to produce; therefore, most people do not want to take the time to make nascent iodine. The iodine molecule has the diatomic bond broken and has a high amount of electromagnetic energy associated. During the 2 to 3 hour of activation time the nascent iodine has the ability to be of great assistance to the body. Much more the nascent state is considered by science to be very effective. They have mentioned an MD promoting Iodine in the 1970’s who said Iodine produced by brown lime was the best form of Iodine. That is , in fact, Nascent iodine.

The quality that separates nascent iodine from all other iodine products is that the diatomic bond is broken in this condition and that the iodine atoms each keep one of the two electrons that had made up the covalent bond. This is known as homolytic cleavage and causes the iodine atom to be subject to magnetic charging. The iodine being in the atomic state was the reason it was called Atomidine, for Atomic Iodine (1926 to 1935).

This atomic state and large electromagnetic charge is held by the atom until diluted in water and consumed. Once diluted and inside the body this atom is readily absorbed and utilized by the body.

To quote the 1930’s document by Schieffelin and Company:

“The lethal dose of Atomidine (1926 to 1935) in animals is very large, which accounts for the absence of untoward effects in clinical use. Due probably to its rapid absorption and its ready combination with harmless proteid or other organic compounds in the body, iodism very rarely occurs even in sensitive persons.” 1930’s nascent iodine

This charged atom of iodine starts a process of relaxation where it gradually loses energy, 2 to 3 hours. During this time the body recognizes this atom as the same nascent iodine it produces in the thyroid in order to make the T3 and T4 hormones. It must also recognize “the well known germicidal qualities of the nascent iodine atom”.

If the body does recognize both these qualities, it can then use this charged atom in the thyroid or elsewhere in the body as needed.

The body requires more or less nascent iodine depending on the task being addressed. To boost the body systems may require very small amounts, a few drops once a day. In the other extreme with life threatening illnesses, it has been reported that to fight parasites from malaria requires as much as 20 drops 5 times for the first day. And then 10 drops 4 times a day until the blood stream is clear in a few days.

The nascent iodine effect is well known in science and medicine. Several medical patents exist for non-consumable nascent iodine.

In summary, the actual difference between nascent iodine and detoxified iodine is that nascent iodine can have a much greater impact on the body. Its abilities far exceed the simple being easy to absorb and safe, it can do real work in the thyroid and throughout the body.


The chemical purity of the iodine in MAGNASCENT ™ is greater than or = 99.8%. We are more concerned about the purity than the actual source. Iodine from seaweed may possibly contain impurities found in the ocean such as arsenic, bromine in quantities that are not desirable or healthy.

Iodine Metabolism In the Thyroid

The major function of the gland is to concentrate iodine, and to synthesize thyroxine (T 4 ) or triiodothyronine (T 4 ). There is always about 20-50 mg of iodine in the body; 8 mg is in the thyroid. The supply may be variable. Iodine comes from water and food, but is also absorbed by intact skin and lungs. Throughout the world, the intake varies. 1 mg is needed per week, or about 50 mg/year. Diet under normal circumstances contains at least 150 micrograms daily.

The iodine pump (iodide trapping) gets the ion into the thyroid. It works against the concentration gradient which is at least 1 (blood) to 25 (gland). The pump is activated by pituitary TSH. ATP is utilized as a source of energy. Excess iodine in the gland inhibits the thyroid hormone synthesis.

Thyroid Hormone Synthesis

Iodide is first oxidized either into nascent iodine I o or I 3- The enzyme peroxidase is necessary as well as hydrogen peroxide. Then, iodine is attached to tyrosine which is the precursor of the thyroid hormones. Monoiodotyrosine and diiodotyrosine are formed by tyrosine iodinase.

Then, two molecules of iodinated tyrosine are coupled into T 3 and T 4 . T 3 is four times as potent as T 4 . About three quarters of the iodinated tyrosine never becomes thyroid hormones. They may be released from thyroglobulin and deiodinated by a deiodinase enzyme. About 90% of hormone produced is thyroxin. The hormones are formed within a globulin molecule in the thyroid and stored as thyroglobuline (MW about 670,000), where there are about 3 molecules of thyroxine and 1 molecule of T 3 per molecule of thyroglobulin. About 2 to 3 months of supply is stored in the gland.

Hormone release and transport

Thyroid hormone secretory pathway is composed of three steps:

* The internalization and intracellular transport of thyroglobulin,
* Proteolytic processing of the prohormone,
* Cellular handling and release of T 4 and T 3 .

Nascent Iodine in a base of organic grain alcohol.


Depending upon desired effect. One drop = RDA of 0.2 mg. If using for additional energy and general improved health take up to 5 drops daily. If recommended by your healthcare professional for assistance with a chronic health concern take 5 drops three or four times a day or as instructed by your healthcare professional. Thirty drops per day is the equivalent of 6 mg. of iodine or 1 drop of Lugol’s iodine. Frequent small doses are more effective than larger amounts at less frequent intervals. Always take on an empty stomach. Most will find that it is important to build up gradually in order to experience the least amount of detoxification.

Recommended: Take on an empty stomach 30 minutes before or 1 hour after meals, medications and/or supplements. Taking it after 4 PM could raise your energy levels and keep you awake at night. It is recommended to take before breakfast, before lunch and then again before 4 PM.

Note: There is a 2 to 3 hour time frame when MAGNASCENT ™ is very active in the body. This is the reason that in the 1930’s, nascent iodine was taken in small doses several times a day, on an empty stomach. We speculate that the body can use this unique iodine best while this energy is available.

News:  Japan Reactors are melting down and releasing radioactive smoke after explosions.

SOMA, Japan — Radiation leaked from a crippled nuclear plant in tsunami-ravaged northeastern Japan after a third reactor was rocked by an explosion today and a fourth caught fire in a dramatic escalation of the four-day-old catastrophe. The government warned anyone nearby to stay indoors to avoid exposure.

March 14, 2011, According to weather experts, it would take about 10 days for a radioactive particle to make it from Japan to the West Coast, and then only if it traveled in a straight line at 20 mph. The turbulent atmosphere over the north Pacific could extend that time, making it even more likely the material would fall to the ocean as rain before reaching land.

Although she spoke Monday afternoon before reports of a third explosion at one of the reactors, Higley said the chances of an amount of radioactive material large enough to have even a minor affect on health making it to Oregon are negligible.

As reported in the Proceedings of the Royal Society of Medicine– Through the 1800’s and early 1900’s iodine was used extensively to cure many illnesses, not just of the thyroid gland, but to cure cancer, goiter, infections, skin problems, lung conditions, and autoimmune conditions.

In fact, a little couplet was given to help medical students remember a rule:“If ye don’t know where, what, and why, Prescribe ye then the K and I”

“K and I” is potassium (the letter “K” on the periodic table of the elements) and iodide salt.

Lugol’s Iodine has been in the mainstream within the medical community for decades.

Originating in 1829, the Lugol’s  solution, a mixture of elemental iodine and potassium iodide in water, was named after French physician J.G.A. Lugol.

Lugol’s iodine solution is often used as an antiseptic and disinfectant, for emergency disinfection of drinking water.

Clinical professionals know of its use in routine laboratory and medical tests.

How has Lugol’s iodine used in the past?

  • Lugol’s was often used in the treatment of gout.
  • At one time it was used as the front-line treatment for cases of hypothermia caused by iodine deficiencies.
  • Lugol’s is an effective bactericide and fungicide

According to Scott Saunders, MD, Barton Publishing, Inc. of “Diseases associated with a lack of iodine, or that may be treated with iodine include:

  • Chronic Fatigue syndrome
  • Fibrocystic breast disease
  • Breast cancer
  • Fibromyalgia
  • acid reflux bacteria
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Ovarian cancer
  • Uterine fibroid tumors
  • Thyroid problems (almost all of them)
  • Nodular vasculitis
  • Pyoderma
  • Fungal infections
  • Bronchial asthma
  • COPD
  • Fluoride, bromide and chloride toxicity

The World Health Organization recognizes iodine deficiency as the greatest cause of preventable mental retardation in the world.  Pregnant women who are deficient in iodine will have children that have IQ scores 10 points lower.”

According to, Lugol’s Iodine is an Antihyperthyroid agent, radiation protectant (thyroid gland), and iodine replenisher.

Volume 54 October 1961 — Library (Scientific Research) Section
President F C Kelly PhD writes in the official journal:

“Pharmaceutical literature of the nineteenth century is studded with iodine eponyms -Bryant’s sherry; Churchill’s caustic; Lugol’s solution; Mandl’s paint; Morton’s fluid; Nourry’s wine; Vanier’s syrup; Whitehead’s varnish – and so on.  These men gave their names to the particular iodine preparations they invented and found useful. In French hospitals it was common practice to hang-up, on the crossbeams of the wards, strips
of gauze steeped in iodoform (for all the world like old-fashioned fly-papers); and, in one Paris infirmary, the ward floors were strewn with dried seaweed in the belief that iodine emanations would pervade the atmosphere with beneficial effect. Within a very short time of iodine’s entry into medicine around 1820, ordinary people like ourselves, doubtless encouraged by the patent medicine vendors of the day, took to carrying little bottles of iodine hung round their necks, like amulets to charm away disease. Later, this practice fell into disrepute; but, oddly enough, was revived even in our own day. Franqois Magendie was who first put iodine into a pharmacopceia – in the year 1821.”

“In the first flush of enthusiasm for the newcomer, physicians and surgeons tested it and tried it for every conceivable pathological condition. The variety of diseases for which iodine was prescribed in the early years is astonishing – paralysis, chorea, scrofula, lacrimal fistula, deafness, distortions of the spine, hip-joint disease, syphilis, acute inflammation,, gout, gangrene, dropsy, carbuncles, whitlow, chilblains, burns,
scalds, lupus, croup, catarrh, asthma, ulcers, and bronchitis – to mention only a few. Indeed, tincture of iodine, iodoform, or one of the iodides, was applied to almost every case that resisted the ordinary routine of practice; and between 1820 and 1840 there appeared a remarkable series of essays and monographs testifying to the extraordinary benefits to be achieved by this new and potent remedy.”
