Q. What is the shelf life of Potassium Iodate?
A. According to the manufacturer, the shelf life is “Theoretically Unlimited”. Note the fact that the sealed bottles are airtight. The shelf life can be extended by storing Ki03 in a refrigerator or freezer. When doing so, it is recommended to use some type of external, sealable storage bag.
* Potassium Iodate (Ki103) is made in the USA
- Potassium Iodate (Ki03) is a superior form of Ki that will shield or block the thyroid and prevent it from absorbing radioactive Iodine during a nuclear emergency
Each factory-sealed bottle contains 90 fresh tablets of Potassium Iodate 85 mg.
- Exceptional shelf life due to extra molecule of oxygen in Iodate
- Unlike other blockers, this is NOT government surplus 130-mg tablets of Ki (potassium iodate)
- Medical Corps recommends that each family member should have at least one bottle in their kit
Take only if directed by authorities or if radioactive fallout is imminent
- Must be stored in a cool, dry place
- Shelf life of 8 years or longer if not exposed to excessive heat or high humidity environment.
Is it safe to take KI tablets with an expired shelf-life?
Yes, potassium iodide tablets are inherently stable and do not lose their effectiveness over time. Manufacturers must label their products with a shelf-life to ensure that consumers purchase safe and useful products.
From F.D.A - What are the side effects of potassium iodide (KI)? please read
Radioactive Iodine (I-131) can destroy the thyroid of humans and animals. Even small amounts of I-131 can cause cancer of the thyroid. By taking KiO3, the thyroid becomes saturated with "good iodine" and cannot absorb the "bad iodine" I-131.
" When taken properly, potassium iodide can saturate your thyroid with iodine, and prevent it from absorbing radioactive iodine. This in turn can prevent the increased risk of thyroid cancer associated with radiation exposure ".(source)
