When it comes to radiation exposure, one of the most important considerations is the protection of your thyroid, and with good reason…
The thyroid gland is a butterfly-shaped organ weighing just 20-60 grams, but it regulates hormones that control practically all of the body’s key metabolic functions including breathing, heart rate, body weight, temperature, muscle strength, and even the central nervous system.
These are vital functions for survival…especially during a crisis or major disaster. Unfortunately, the thyroid is also the most sensitive body part when it comes to absorbing radioactive iodine (I-131).
That’s where potassium iodide (Thyrosafe) comes in.
Thyrosafe actively prevents your thyroid gland from absorbing radioactive iodine—effectively blocking one of the most dangerous elements of radioactive exposure during the crucial first days of fallout and radiation.
In the event of exposure, it’s crucial to take potassium iodide (Thyrosafe) as soon as possible (and advised) to avoid radioactive iodine side effects and radiation poisoning.
Key Features of Thyrosafe Tablets:
Thyrosafe is the only FDA approved potassium iodide (KI) supplement available on the market today
Manufactured under strict guidelines and subjected to rigorous quality testing to ensure reliable function
Individually sealed, 65 mg doses are marked for easy division and accurate dosing for children and adults
Cross-scoring allows further division into smaller doses for newborns and infants.
Tablets allow for simple dosing of children (1 pill) and adults (2 pills)
Extremely minimal risk of side effects (often stomach discomfort and other mild issues)
7-year shelf life for long-lasting reliability
Produced by Recipharm AB in Sweden, with 20 years of experience manufacturing potassium iodide (KI) tablets
Newborns (birth – 1 month): 16 mg (1/4 65 mg tablet)
Infants (1 month – 3 years): 32 mg (1/2 65 mg tablet)
Children (3–18): 65 mg (1 full tablet)
Adults (18+): 130 mg (2 tablets)
· Breastfeeding women should take the full adult dose of 130 mg.
· Children who weigh 150 pounds or more should take the adult dosage.
· Each dose lasts 24 hours.
· Adults over 40 run the least risk of developing thyroid cancer and are more likely to suffer adverse reactions to potassium iodide, so caution should be exercised.
Technical Details of Thyrosafe
Thyrosafe radiation pills work on a simple and ultimately reliable principle: That the thyroid gland requires iodine to function, but once it’s absorbed enough, it won’t absorb any more.
By taking Thyrosafe, you give your body a safe, stable source of iodine before it’s exposed to potentially unsafe iodine. Thyrosafe is carefully measured to ensure you receive enough iodine (never too much) to last 24 hours and ward off the potentially damaging effects of radioactive iodine (I-131). The half-life of I-131 is just over a week, making this ten-day supply a perfect solution for most buyers.
Since the body is indiscriminate about the kind of iodine it absorbs, your thyroid is at risk when it comes to radioactive exposure and contamination after meltdowns or major nuclear events.
Radiation poisoning often starts with the thyroid—which is why potassium iodide pills were one of the first lines of defense after nuclear events at Chernobyl and Fukushima. That’s also why thyroid cancer is often a major factor in radiation poisoning.
This is a major threat because the thyroid gland plays a key role in regulating the hormones that control metabolic processes.
Thyrosafe acts as the first line of defense against the risk of radioactive contamination, with each dose providing 24 hours of reliable protection to keep your thyroid functioning safely while you make your way to safety.
REMEMBER: When it comes to taking Thyrosafe, it’s all about timing. The sooner you take it, the more likely you are to prevent exposure and the accumulation of radioactive iodine. That’s why it’s crucial to have a supply of Thyrosafe on hand in the event of radioactive exposure. It’s one of the simplest, most affordable, and most reliable ways to prepare and protect your family from a serious nuclear event.
