Dr. Clark Lugol's Iodine Stomach Saver 1 fl oz (30 cc)
- Supports thyroid function*
- Natural digestive aid*
- For both internal and external use
- Comes with separate glass dropper
Because the body only requires a trace amount of iodine, a little goes a long way. The majority of ingested iodine is used by the thyroid to help maintain regular function. The thyroid plays vital roles in regulating body temperature, metabolism, reproduction, and growth. The immune system also benefits from sufficient iodine, as it stimulates the activity of antioxidants, which fight the damaging effects of free radicals.*
Using Lugol’s Iodine as a Dietary Supplement
Did you know that Lugol’s iodine easily bonds to a wide variety of surfaces? This includes tissues in the body for general health purposes but also living organisms like bacteria. The bonding properties make Lugol’s effective at neutralizing bacteria that colonize the stomach and damage the stomach lining.*
However, Lugol’s can also bind to and inactivate your good intestinal bacteria. To avoid damaging beneficial gut flora, mix your Lugol’s iodine dose with water, juice or food. If Lugol’s is bound to other compounds on its way through our digestive tract, it won’t harm your good bacteria.
Using Lugol’s Iodine for Upset Stomachs
At some point, you have probably experienced eating something that didn’t agree with you and needed to find swift relief to calm your upset stomach. There’s a reason why we call our Lugol’s formula a “stomach Saver.” It works fast and effectively. You may feel relief within just a few minutes!* Lugol’s neutralizes the microbes in your stomach but won’t harm the good bacteria in your intestines.* And the elemental iodine will still be absorbed by the body as part of your daily iodine intake for nutrition purposes.
At the first sign of stomach upset, mix a full dropper of Lugol’s with ¼ cup (60 mL) of water. Drink the entire solution and repeat every four hours until your stomach has been calmed. If stomach discomfort becomes severe, contact a physician.
Lugol’s Iodine is a multipurpose product. You can even use it as a chemical free produce wash. Click here to learn the full extent of the Lugol’s formula.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Why is this solution only 2% iodine?
A: Under federal law, numerous regulations have been placed on iodine products made with granular iodine containing more than 2.2% iodine. To minimize the regulatory headache, we only manufacture Lugol's Iodine in a 2% solution.
Q: Is Lugol's Iodine the same as nascent iodine?
A: No, Lugol's Iodine is not nascent iodine. Nascent iodine is also called free-form iodine, which is iodine that is not bound to any other chemical such as sodium or potassium. Our Lugol's Iodine is a sodium iodide solution.
Q: Can Lugol's Iodine be used externally?
A: Yes, Lugol's iodine can be used both externally and internally as long as you are not allergic to iodine. If you are using Lugol's Iodine externally on the skin, use caution because this product does stain. Keep clothing away from skin where Lugol's has been applied. Consider covering the area with a bandage acting as a barrier to protect your clothing. The skin discoloration will fade.
Q: Why does the product label become discolored?
A: Iodine vapor escapes from the bottle over time, even if the bottle is tightly sealed, and this causes the label to turn brown. This is a natural characteristic of iodine, and while this is harmless to humans, the escaped iodine can stain materials close to where you are storing your bottle of Lugol's.
Q: What is Lugol's Iodine derived from?
A: We use granular iodine derived from a brine solution and sodium iodide derived from naturally occurring iodine.
