Vitamin C and Iodine/Iodide

Vitamin C and Lugols Iodine

Lugol’s should not be mixed with beverages that contain vitamin C as this would convert the iodine into iodide, essentially turning Lugols into super saturated potassium iodide.

There is a lot of debate over whether the iodine converts to iodide inside our body if we we were to consume them at the same time, but it’s probably not a bad idea to wait 2 hours between consuming the two, just to be safe.
