When we say you'd have a hard time finding a higher quality iodine supplement, we mean it. We don't cut corners because your health is too important.
Think of it this way. The term "iodine" is much like the term "coffee." It might sound like coffee is all the same, but it's simply not true. What makes Starbucks different from your local coffee shop, Dunkin Donuts, or Folgers? The source, sustainability, manufacturing, roasting, and farming practices. The same is true for iodine.
Iodine grades range from something you might use in a chemistry lab or an aquarium to prescription-grade iodine for human use.
Our Geologist explains it this way. When it comes to iodine mining and sustainability, there are different methods, grades, and quality standards. Outside of China, one of the largest producers of iodine is the Caliche mines in South America. Caliche iodine is often referred to as "Dirty Iodine" because the iodine does not meet USP Grade. In terms of sustainability, the Caliche mining method uses explosives to blast large areas of the Earth's crust and "scrape" the blasted material.
Just like in food production, there are licensing and quality standards. That's how you know it's safe to eat at your local restaurant. The FDA helps assure the identity, strength, quality, and purity through cGMP manufacturing of dietary supplements.
CGMP stands for Current Good Manufacturing Practice, which assures you of control manufacturing operations including quality management systems, obtaining appropriate quality raw materials, establishing robust operating procedures, detecting and investigating product quality deviations, and maintaining reliable testing laboratories,
