Lugol's is the liquid form of Iodoral. Both contain a combination of iodiNe and iodiDe. Both attach to human cells,some cells preferring one or the other. Both belong to the class of compounds called "halogens". Other halogens are:chlorine,bromine,and fluorine. Halogens are powerful germ killers. Chlorine is put into city water and swimming pools in order to keep down the elves of critters. Iodine naturally does the same thing in the ocean. This is why sea creature can survive in what is basically a large toilet. When mankind lived near the ocean,iodine deficiency was uncommon. Today,it is very common. When we saturate or bodies with iodine/iodide,it allows us to keep critter levels down, as iodine does for the ocean and chlorine does for a public swimming pool. Lugol's makes it easier to confer the protection of these halogens to people who can't swallow pills. 2 drops of Lugol's is equivalent to 1 tablet of Iodoral. Adults should start with 6 drops,children 3. Iodine also improves thyroid function. Many practitioners use Lugol's/Iodoral as a natural antibiotic,especially for bladder and respiratory infections. I've had people use 10/Iodoral/day for 7 days instead of prescription antibiotics in either case. Consult your health care professional if you use either of these to treat infections or overgrowths. Halogens are very powerful yeast killers. Iodine supplementation is a powerful way to reduce your risk of breast cancer. Usually,whatever protects from breast cancer also protects from prostate cancer. Keep Lugol's/Iodoral out of reach of children.

Calculating Number of MG's of Iodine and Potassium Iodide per Drop of Lugol's Solution:
LUGOL'S 5%: Each VERTICAL drop is about 6.25 mg's of iodine/potassium iodide (2.5 mg iodine, 3.75 mg potassium iodide) and 2 drops is about 12.50 mg's of iodine/potassium iodide (5.0 mg iodine, 7.50 mg potassium iodide). Compared to other's, J.CROW'S® Lugol's Solution offers big savings.
LUGOL'S 2%: Slightly less than 1/2 half the above measurements.
Approximately 1200 vertical drops per 2 oz. container. To use as a water purifier add 3-6 drops per liter of water.
