the product called 2% Lugol's is already diluted Lugol'sIodine solution. the original is 5%, so 2 parts of that is mixed with 3 parts water to make the total volume of I2 be 2%. there has been some anectdotal evidence that this dilution is more effective than the original. i do not have any experience with it.
Thank you for the response. I acquired 500ml of 5% from Jcrow before the 'change' and we have experienced a lot of positive change. Remarkable things actually. So have read much on here about use, sources, etc.
What form do you use? Source?
If you have the 2% and you want a 5% Equivalent use 2 1/2 times the amount.
If you have a 16 oz of the 2% let it evaporate by 50% + some and you will have the 5%
(actually the official range is 4.5-5.5%)
In any case the discussion about increased potency if diluted material is used is worth noting. Homeopathic remedies are based on such a principle.
Yes, this is why I asked about the reduced % perhaps having more effectiveness. A local but well known homeopathic doctor has talked about this a great deal. Can't quite get my head around it, but to hear others chime in does strengthen this possibility.
I purchased 5% from you and it has been fantastic btw... when I run out, will be coming back for more.
