Unfortunately, the threat of thyroid radioiodine uptake has been realized, and the general public are aggressively taking proactive measures to protect against any future potential nuclear events similar to that of the Fukushima disaster.
Wilmington, DE (PRWEB) April 15, 2011
The launch of a Potassium Iodide dietary supplement called THYROID-KI is expected to respond to the people’s need for a formulation that will keep their thyroids healthy amidst heightened radiation fears as a result of a leak at the nuclear power plant in Fukushima, Japan.
“In addition to general demand for Potassium Iodide to support optimal thyroid health, we have experienced unprecedented demand for KI as a result of the tragic nuclear disaster at Japan’s Fukushima nuclear power plant,” says Sophia Barker, President of Product Management at ANF INNOVATIONS, LLC.
THYROID-KI contains 120 tablets for a full 30-day supply of Potassium Iodide with an adult dosage of four tablets taken daily. Each tablet comes in a 32.5mg dosage that can easily be administered to children and young adults. More importantly, THYROID-KI is independently tested for purity by an independent analytical testing laboratory registered with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
“We are confident that the introduction of THYROID-KI, and in particular, the convenient 32.5mg KI tablets for easier administration to non-adults, has addressed a diverse group of customers and will be welcomed strongly,” she said.
While both stable iodine and radioactive iodine is absorbed by the thyroid gland, it is Potassium Iodide which is preferentially absorbed by the organ resulting in saturation of stable iodine. While iodized salt and other iodine-rich food can keep people healthy, this is only applicable under normal circumstances and not when there is an excess of radioactive iodine.
“Unfortunately, the threat of thyroid radioiodine uptake has been realized, and the general public are aggressively taking proactive measures to protect against any future potential nuclear events similar to that of the Fukushima disaster,” Barker said.
A nuclear accident can increase the environment’s radioactive iodine content and can cause thyroid cancer. However, the entry of radioactive iodine into the gland may be significantly minimized and prevented by Potassium Iodide.
The FDA has rated Potassium Iodide as Generally Regarded As Safe (GRAS) for all age groups and can thus be administered to people in case of a nuclear emergency. With THYROID-KI people now have a way not only of controlling hyperthyroidism but they may also counter the effects of radiation.
“THYROID-KI’s compact and efficient bottle provides customers with Potassium Iodide pills which are not only independently tested for purity, but which they can easily store to keep with them at all times; the bottle is twice the size of a tube of lipstick”.
