Hi, Was browsing different websites looking at iodosupplementation, and read several glowing accounts of using SSKI (saturated potassium iodide) solution instead of Lugol's, on the basis that the body's needs for iodIDE are greater than for iodINE. Has anyone here used SKI instead of Lugol's? Or with a reduced amount if Lugol's? If so, with what results and at what dosages? My understanding of chemistry is next to none, but I've read that the iodIDE content of the potassium iodide total is approx. 75% Is that right? I can't find a single mg per drop figure that everyone agrees on for SKKI. Can anyone here help me figure it out? - Am not sure if the discrepancies I keep seeing are due to mis-calculation of drop size (some say one drop SSKI=1/20th of 1ml, others say SSKI is more viscous and is 1/15th of a ml), or somethimg else. Surely a saturated solution is a saturated solution, and should measure the same, drop for drop? Some iodosupplementers are using Lugol's in combination with SSKI, to ensure they get enough iodINE. I'm still using Lugol's at the moment, but I turned the iodine content of my Lugol's into iodide yesterday by mixing ascorbic acid with it (it goes clear, the yellow/brown colour disappears), and again today, and my skin is noticeably softer and smooother, even more so than it has become since using Lugol's. The skin prefers iodide, or so I've read in a few different places, and that being so, I guess that would make sense.
