The high cost and complexity of manufacturing GMP certified IODINE Natural Products creates a marketplace that is very different from any other supplement.
→ Consumers assume that if a product is sold online or in a store, it must have been approved for sale by the Government.
Consumers are unaware that most Iodine-based products are:
→ Labeled with the following statements: "talisman only," "this product has not been evaluated by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration," "not intended for human usage," “for external use only,” or "Talisman usage."
→ Manufactured with additives, chemicals, a source of Iodine from the ocean where toxicity is a concern (Kelp), manufactured by unregistered Pharmaceutical companies, or using low quality or undocumented Iodine.
All our LUGOL'S IODINE products are labeled with the three above indications.
The high cost and complexity of manufacturing GMP certified IODINE Natural Products is caused by three principles:
1) Substantial investments in custom equipment for handling and manufacturing.
2) True Iodine that is mined from Chile is difficult to source, acquire, and import due to strict Federal laws.
3) True Iodine is a Natural resource affected by natural disasters, stability around the world, and Nuclear accidents or threats.
