both are very similar in structure but different tissues bind I2 or KI like the thyroid needing KI. Now after a long research journey I found conflicting reports on the case that KI gets transformed to I2 as needed if it gets in contact with a acid environment. (think trapper saying this) And on the other hand people claiming that its not possible, recommending a combination of both for optimal availablity.
If this is the case, is it true, that the KI should be higher in ratio to I2? I personally am 5-6wks into Iodine/KI and found that the I2 seems to be harsher on my system in regards to sides for whatever reason than SSKI alone.
Also I want to know, wether SSKI and I2 both exert the same effects in regards to halogen balance, antiviral/ Antibiotic and apoptoic functions? And if yes is it always tissue bound? I'd like to have a list on what tissues' need is of I2 and KI respectively.
