What is Detoxadine?
A standardized nano-colloidal certified organic nascent iodine, Detoxadine is produced with a transformative bio-elemental matrix in a glycerine base. It is designed to be much more kinder to your digestive system than iodine supplements containing alcohol.
Created from 300 million-year-old salt deposits located more than 7,000 feet below the earth's surface, Detoxadine is a very pure nascent iodine that is both concentrated and free of additives and toxins. Each drop is packed with 650 micrograms iodine and screened for radiation.
The Top 5 Reasons You Need Nascent Iodine
1. The Best Form of Supplemental Iodine is Nascent Iodine
Compared to any and all other iodine supplements, Detoxadine nascent iodine is the most easily absorbed and utilized form of iodine available.
2. Nutritionally Supports Thyroid Health
Detoxadine contains 650 micrograms of iodine in each drop which promotes the normal iodine levels necessary to support the thyroid and help with normal hormone balance.
3. Promotes Detoxification
The halogens fluoride, chlorine, and bromine compete with iodine for the same thyroid receptors. Having enough iodine available to the thyroid can help defend and detoxify it against these toxic halogens.
4. Unmatched Quality
Detoxadine is created using 300 million-year-old salt deposits located 7,000 feet below the earth's surface. The result is a very pure and concentrated nascent iodine - free of additives and toxins. Detoxidine is also screened for radiation.
5. Gentle but Potent Formula
Detoxadine is nascent iodine in a vegetable glycerin base. Unlike alcohol based formulas, Detoxadine has a very gentle taste that both adults and children like.

What are the Top 3 Questions People Ask About Detoxadine?
1. Can I take Detoxadine while pregnant?
During pregnancy good nutrition is especially important. Not only is an expectant mother providing for herself, but her developing baby as well. Many pregnant and planning-to-become-pregnant women use Detoxadine to support their health.
2. Why is Detoxadine better than potassium iodide?
The nascent iodine in Detoxadine is pure and much easier for your body to absorb and use. In nature, iodine is attached to other elements as a compound, it doesn't exist pure. In these forms, absorption can be as low as 20%, making it biologically inefficient. Detoxadine is different because it provides a bioavailable, non-toxic nascent iodine that rapidly enters your bloodstream and disperses throughout your body.
3. How does nascent iodine affect my thyroid?
The thyroid converts iodine back to mono-elemental iodine and immediately recombines it as an essential mineral element with protein configurations to form the thyroid hormones T3 and T4. Put simply, nascent iodine supports the thyroid and hormone function.
A Short History of Detoxadine
Detoxadine is manufactured in a state-licensed facility that meets federal regulatory standards, is cGMP/HACCP-compliant, and lab grade. Raw elemental iodine is a controlled substance both at a State and Federal level. The licensing, approvals and regulatory documentary procedures are exacting and costly.
The production process of Detoxadine has a stabilizing effect on the elemental iodine, making it far more bioavailable than other "nascent iodine" products which can exhibit toxic effects (e.g. Cytotoxicity).
Bound forms of iodine must first be separated, clarified and purified from other binding components or impurities into a USP-grade (US Pharmaceutical), mono-elemental iodine as certified USP resublimated iodine crystals. In this purified crystal form, iodine is a highly reactive and toxic substance. However, when the purified USP iodine crystals are subjected to a proprietary process it becomes nano-colloidalized and transforms into a non-toxic form of elemental nascent iodine, also referred to as monoatomic iodine, without the addition of iodides!
- Nascent iodine
Nascent iodine is the most effective supplemental form of iodine. It is an atomic form of iodine with an incomplete number of electrons, giving it a high electromagnetic charge. The body can absorb and use nascent iodine easily for metabolic and detoxification processes.
- USP Kosher certified vegetable glycerin
More gentle and stable than alcohol, USP Kosher certified vegetable glycerin is the best solvent base for Spagyrex® formulations.
- Triple distilled water
Purified water is one of the best neutral carriers. It’s effective, gentle, and, unlike alcohol, appropriate for everyone.

How is Detoxadine produced?
Historically, nascent iodine has been made using electricity to break iodine’s diatomic bond and create a single, highly energized atom. However, it isn't easy to use this method on the scale necessary to produce sufficient quantities. It also does not leverage the latest technological advances.
A proprietary technology to create nascent iodine using Thermodynamic Pressure Sensitive High Energy Sound Pulse Nano-Emulsion Technology is used. This technology results from years of research, with the result being a highly-charged, bio-available, stable form of nascent iodine.
What is the source of the iodine?
The iodine is derived from a salt solution extracted from a geologic formation approximately 6,000-7,000 feet below the earth's surface. This salt solution is 300 million years old and contains high concentrations of “iodide” that is extracted. The iodide solution undergoes a series of purification steps to convert it to iodine and separate the non-volatiles and other halogens.
What is the best timing for taking Detoxadine? With or without food? Best time of the day?
Detoxadine may be taken with or without food, but we typically suggest taking it 20-30 minutes before a meal to maximize absorption. Since iodine may increase energy, it is best to take it in the morning or early afternoon (not at night!).
How many servings are in a bottle?
Each concentrated drop contains 650 micrograms of iodine, and one daily serving is only three small drops. Every bottle offers 200 servings, which lasts over six months with suggested use.
Don’t we get iodine in salt?
While it's true that iodine is added to salt in many regions, it is generally a very low-quality form of iodine and the amount added is only the bare minimum needed to keep you alive. To thrive, you need a high-quality daily iodine supplement.
I don't have a thyroid gland. Do I still need iodine?
If you do not have a thyroid, then iodine is not necessary to create thyroid hormones. However, that doesn't mean the rest of your body doesn't need iodine -- it does. Iodine is necessary for breast and prostate health (the second-largest iodine storage sites after the thyroid). It is also used by the adrenal glands, parotid glands, mucosal lining of the intestines, uterus, ovaries, and more. It is a necessary nutrient for maintaining healthy cell life cycles. The P53 gene requires iodine to function. P53 has been called "The Guardian of the Genetic Code" and is responsible for the apoptosis process of damaged cells. Thyroid or not, there is no question that iodine is required by the human body to function properly.
Is Detoxadine safe for individuals who have allergies to iodine?
If it is the iodine content of kelp that the individual is sensitive to, then all iodines should be used with great caution. If it is the polysaccharide matrix to which the iodine is bound that the individual is sensitive to, then the iodine in Detoxadine “MIGHT” not be a concern. In either case, deferring to a natural physician is absolutely required.
Should people with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis or Graves take Detoxadine?
People with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis or Graves should consult their physician before taking any nutritional supplements.
Should I discontinue any prescriptions once I start taking Detoxadine?
No, you should not discontinue any medication without consulting your prescribing healthcare professional. It is also recommended you separate medications at least 4 hours from Detoxadine administration.
How many milligrams of nascent iodine is in one serving of Detoxadine?
There are 1,950 micrograms or 1.950 milligrams of nascent iodine per serving of Detoxadine.
What is the shelf life of Detoxadine?
The shelf life of Detoxadine is about 3 years.
How much iodine is too much iodine?
Acute iodine toxicity is rare and usually only occurs when many grams have been ingested. Symptoms may include burning of the mouth, throat, and stomach, vomiting, increased heart rate, nausea, intermittent ringing in the ears, diarrhea, weak pulse, shakiness, feelings of panic, or a profound disruption of sleep patterns.
Is Detoxadine an 'iodide,' like potassium iodide?
No, Detoxadine is not an iodide or iodate. Iodides are iodine bound to another mineral, such as potassium. Iodides are harder for the body to use. Detoxadine is a special non-toxic transformed mono-element nascent iodine product. In other words, the only mineral Detoxadine contains is iodine! This means easier uptake and utilization.
Can I give Detoxadine to my pet?
Pets can take 1 drop per day for every 25 pounds they weigh. Detoxadine can be administered directly in the mouth or added to food.
