GMP guidelines apply to every aspect of the manufacturing process, from the cleanliness of the equipment to the composition of our solutions themselves. GMP laboratory manufacturing also follows strict rules, regarding the handling, storage, and measurement of raw materials to ensure the composition and potency levels of products.
Iodine Prilled is considered a (REM) Rare Earth Metal. This rare natural resource requires particular attention in the GMP process. From specialized handling procedures, highly technical laboratory equipment, implementation of unique manufacturing processes, Iodine resistant equipment, physical location, and highly trained personnel, to name a few.
Manufacturing a GMP Iodine-based suite of Lugol's Iodine Solutions is an achievement by itself!
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.
The high cost and complexity of manufacturing GMP certified IODINE Natural Products has created a marketplace that is very different from any other supplement.
→ Consumers assume that if a product is being sold, 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, source of Iodine from the ocean where toxicity is a concern (Kelp), manufactured by unregistered Pharmaceutical companies, or manufactured by using low quality or undocumented Iodine.
