Our Lugol’s Iodine is one of our most potent Thyroid Conditions products proven effective for(Please Be Aware of All Sorts of Imitations):
- Hypothyroidism – Underactive Thyroid
- Hyperthyroidism – Overactive Thyroid - Thyrotoxicosis
- Goitre – Thyroid Enlargement
- Thyroid Nodules and Lumps
A variety of diseases affects the Thyroid and trigger Thyroid Conditions, including:
- Autoimmune Thyroid Disease: There are two types of autoimmune diseases in which an immune system dysfunction targets the thyroid. (I): Graves’ Disease – sometimes referred to as Diffuse Goitre because of the unusually presence of Goitre, typically causes Hyperthyroidism. (II): Hashimoto’s Disease, which is the most common form of Thyroiditis, is an inflammation of the Thyroid.
- Toxic Multinodular Goitre – Toxic Adenoma – Plummer’s Disease: This is a condition where the thyroid is enlarged and contains nodules that produce thyroid hormone, causing hyperthyroidism.
- Thyroid Cancer: Thyroid Cancer is characterized by malignant or cancerous nodules of the thyroid.
- Thyroiditis: While Hashimoto’s Disease is by far the most common form of Thyroiditis, there are other forms that also involve the inflammation of the Thyroid Gland: (I): De Quervain’s Thyroiditis, Granulomatous Thyroiditis, Painful Thyroiditis. This is a viral-induced Thyroiditis that can have Thyrotoxic Phase. (II): Painless Thyroiditis, Silent Thyroiditis, Lymphocytic Thyroiditis: this is a temporary thyroid condition that may involve mild hyperthyroidism during its Thyrotoxic phase followed by a period of hypothyroidism before returning to normal.
- Postpartum Thyroiditis: This is a form of painless or “silent” Thyroiditis that affects about 10 percent of women usually within a year of giving birth.
- Acute Suppurative Thyroiditis: This is a rare situation where the thyroid is infected by bacteria and abscessed.
What then is the function of the thyroid gland and why is the thyroid hormone so important?
The Thyroid Gland primarily produces, stores and releases two key thyroid hormones: Triiodothyronine (T3) and Thyroxine (T4). The numbers refers to the amount of iodine molecules attached to each hormone. The thyroid cells absorb Iodine. The thyroid obtains iodine through food, iodized salt and supplements
The role of the thyroid hormones is to control your metabolism. That is the process by which oxygen and calories are converted into energy use by your body cells and organ.
There is not a single cell in your body that does not depend on the thyroid hormones for regulation and for energy in some form. The thyroid hormone has a number of functions as they travel through the bloodstream:
- Thyroid hormones help cells convert oxygen and calories into energy
- Thyroid hormones help you properly process carbohydrates
- Thyroid hormones aid in the proper functioning of your muscles.
- Thyroid hormones help your heart pump properly and effectively
- Thyroid hormones help you breathe normally
- Thyroid hormones help your intestinal system properly digest and eliminate food.
- Thyroid hormones help strengthen your hair, nails and skin
- Thyroid hormones help with proper sexual development and functioning.
- Thyroid hormones help with normal bone growth
You can now see how and why a deficiency of the active form of iodine due to thyroid condition can have a very devastating effect on our bodies.
This is why the surgical removal of your Thyroid or Thyroid mutilation can have a very devastating effect on your health for life.

Have been diagnosed with Iodine deficiency?
Or you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:
- Swollen thyroid gland – Goitre
- Underactive Thyroid – Hypothyroidism
- Overactive Thyroid
- Thyroid Enlargement
- Thyroid Lumps
- Do you have visible Lumps and Nodules?
Our Lugol’s Iodine is well formulated to deal with severe cases for Thyroid Conditions including Lumps and Goitre.
Many ocean-bearing iodine-rich foods are now unavailable, and agricultural farmland is increasingly iodine-deficient, leading to reduced levels of iodine in foods.
Consequently, people living in areas where the land has been over-farmed with depleting chemical have a high incidence of goitre as happened in Michigan in the 1930s
In 1924, iodine was first added to table salt as a preventative measure, and by 1940, the practice was in general consumer use.
Using iodized salt has, no doubt, been effective: it contains about 76mcg of iodine per gram. The average person consumes at least 3gm of iodized salt daily, exceeding the RDA for iodine by 150 mcg.
However, iodized salt has many other drawbacks: it contains aluminium and processing chemical residues, its overuse creates the well-documented conditions associates with high sodium intake and sodium-potassium imbalance, etc.
With treated salts – Table Salt - convenient little addition to the Western diet, its integration accelerated by the explosive expansion of fast food outlets, at which table salt's cup doth overflow, one might think we have seen the last of iodine deficiency. Hardly!
Enter "halogen displacement" and the effects of chlorine intake on the body's small reserve of iodine. Table salt, by definition, is mostly "sodium chloride" (what chemists call a "halide" - or a halogen tied to a mineral, making it a "salt" of a halogen).
Although bound to sodium, the use of Table Salt as a delivery vehicle for Iodine ironically presents a situation where you ingest far more chlorine which displaces Iodine (as we will see in a moment) than you do the iodine itself.
You see, chlorine, which has been used extensively since 1904 to control microbes in public drinking water, belongs to the same class of elements as iodine: the "halogens" - or elements that are one step removed from the "inert elements" or gases, because they have just one electron missing from their outer shell to make it inert -non-reactive. This makes them quite readily reactive.
Look out for the dangers of Table Salt.
