Description

  • iOSAT Potassium Iodide
  • 130 mg, 14 tablets
  • Item Catalog Number: 30525

Following the meltdown at Three Mile Island nuclear plant in 1979, ANBEX developed iOSAT for protection from an accidental or terrorist related release of radioactive iodine from a nuclear power plant or nuclear weapon. iOSAT received its approval from the US Food and Drug Administration in 1982, and is one of the few tablets for radiation blocking which may legally be sold in the US.

iOSAT contains potassium iodide, a specific blocker of thyroid radio-iodine uptake. When properly ingested, potassium iodide travels to the thyroid gland and staturates it with iodine. It therefore blocks radioactive iodine from entering the thyroid gland.
