in the nascent state, not elemental iodine. It is consumable nascent iodine, not available since 1935 and Sunkar A. Bisey, who made a saline form, but lost now it seems. Edgar Cayce
's most recommended item from his era.
is active in the body with an energy not found in any other type of iodine, as those who have used it correctly can tell you. Food in the stomach can tie it (nascent iodine)up so that it becomes like other types of iodine. Nascent iodine is very different in the body, much more than just being absorbed, more useful.
If it acted the same as the other forms of iodine, it would be a waste of time and effort to make. It was too expensive (labor intense) to make during the Depression
era of 1931 when suggested by Cayce, funny we can make it now?
I hope this is helpful John B.
