DIRECTIONS: Recommended daily serving is one tablespoon (15 mL) for adults, or one teaspoon (5 mL) for children 4+ years old, taken on an empty stomach to maximize absorption in the gastro-intestinal tract. Wait 20 to 30 minutes before eating or drinking. One tablespoon provides 887 mcg of Iodine which is 501% the RDA for adults; one teaspoon provides 296 mcg of Iodine which is 247% the RDA for children 4 years and older.
WARNING: If nursing, pregnant, in poor health or allergic to Iodine, please consult your doctor before taking. Once received, just store MediDINE at room temperature out of direct sunlight.
NOTE: The thyroid gland utilizes Iodine (unreactive), not Iodide. There is a difference. Iodide is the ionic form of Iodine which has an oxidation state of -1 meaning it has an extra outer valence electron to share with other atoms or molecules and is thus reactive. Ions are reactive (not good) and readily react with other atoms or molecules to form new chemical “salts” or complex molecules; that is why Iodide is sold and consumed as a salt such as Potassium Iodide, but after consumption, the Iodide does not turn into Iodine. That is why it is critical to use nascent Iodine as your dietary Iodine supplement because it provides actual Iodine as do foods high in Iodine. Too many have an Iodide salt on hand in case of nuclear fallout which will contain any number of the possible 37 known radioactive isotopes of Iodine. These radioactive Iodine isotopes can bind at receptor sites in the human body like the thyroid gland and not leave. The best prevention is to have those receptor sites already occupied by nascent Iodine (not a radioactive isotope, and not ionic Iodide); the radioactive Iodine will not find a home and will be eliminated from the body.
