Potassium Iodide protects the sensitive thyroid gland against the effects of radiation exposure, by blocking absorption. The U.S. government recommended dosage is 1 to 4 tablets daily per person (4 tablets per adult, less for children), so the bottle of 90 tablets (32.5 mg each) will provide for two adults for ten days after exposure. (It's to be taken only during a period of heavy exposure to radioactivity, or if heavy exposure is imminent.) The FDA states a shelf life of fifteen years. Preexisting medical conditions may influence the advisability of taking potassium iodide; consult your personal physician before using. Potassium Iodide is also known by its chemical abbreviation, "KI". Easy-swallowing tablet form. The tablets are vegetarian, gluten free, dairy free, and non-GMO.
