Benefits of Potassium Iodide:
Protects the thyroid gland • Expectorant properties • Supports respiratory health
Potassium iodide is a salt of stable iodine. Unstable iodine is radioactive and can damage the thyroid if it is ingested in high enough quantities.
Potassium iodide blocks radioactive iodine from entering the thyroid
It acts as an expectorant by increasing secretion of respiratory fluids, which decreases the viscosity of mucus
