Iodoral is the pill form equivelant to Lugol's solution.
However, to get it into pill form, they add flow agents and binders which seem to cause issues for some.
Lugol's 5% iodine is a combination of 5% iodine crystals and 10% potassium iodide in distilled water.
This is the ideal combination because the body needs both iodine and iodide.
Iodide is the salt of iodine.
Iodine can diffuse into our cells, but iodide needs the NIS (sodium iodide symporter) to get it into the cells.
Some people have a defective NIS and need the companions to overcome this issue because the thyroid prefers iodide.

Thyroid needs 3% prefers iodide (50mg iodide)
Lungs prefer iodide

Breast tissue needs 3-5 mg / day minumum and prefers iodine
