Facts about Iodine

Balance is the Key

 

Iodine vs Coronaviruses

Potential role of inanimate surfaces for the spread of coronaviruses and their inactivation with disinfectant agents

"Ethanol (78%-95%), iso-propanol (70%-100%), the combination of 45% iso-propanol with 30% n-propanol, glutardialdehyde (0.5-2.5%), formaldehyde (0.7%-1%) and povidone iodine (0.23%-7.5%) readily inactivated coronavirus infectivity by approximately 4 log 10 or more" Günter Kampf, University of Greifswald · Institute of Hygiene and Environmental Medicine

Persistence of coronaviruses on inanimate surfaces and their inactivation with biocidal agents

                     (SARS-CoV/MERS-CoV) Reduction of viral infectivity: >99.99% in 15 sec

Iodine is essential for nutrition and used extensively in medicine. However, some people may develop a chemical sensitivity to iodine. 

For all sterIOdine products:

  • Read the label or MSDS for dosage instructions and additional product information.
  • Keep out of reach of children.
  • Keep cool and away from direct sunlight
  • For external use only. Do not ingest. If swallowed, call a Poison Control Center or a health care professional immediately. 
  • Consult a health care professional for use on infants, or if you are pregnant, lactating or with thyroid disorder.
  • Avoid contact with eyes. If contact occurs, flush thoroughly with water.
  • Do not apply over large areas of the body.
  • If symptoms worsen or persist after seven days, or if irritation develops, discontinue use and consult a health care practitioner/professional.
