IoSAT Potassium Iodide Tabs


IOSAT Potassium Iodide (KI) is the only FDA (Food and Drug Administration) approved full strength tablet available to the public. Any non-FDA approved brands of potassium iodide should be avoided.

These are THE only full-strength tablet for radiation blocking which may be legally be sold in the USA.


14 Tablets per pack.

Stockpiling of potassium iodide (KI) is highly recommended by health officials worldwide to prevent cancer for those exposed to radioactive iodine. Radioactive iodine is the predominate radio-isotope released from a nuclear reactor accident or detonation of a nuclear weapon (due to nuclear fission) and can travel hundreds of kilometres downwind, such as it did after the Chernobyl accident and more recently at Fukushima.

How it works :
The Thyroid is the only part of the body that absorbs and stores iodine. By taking FDA approved potassium iodide prior to exposure of radioactive iodine, your thyroid will become saturated with safe, stable iodine. This will prevent your thyroid's absorption of any additional iodine (radioactive or not) long enough for the radioactive iodine inhaled or ingested to be safely dispersed through the kidneys.
The outcome is to prevent thyroid cancer.

How to use KI :
Each tablet of iOSAT contains 130 mg of potassium iodide in a small round tablet. The tablet is scored to aid in splitting it into 65 and 32.5 mg doses for young children (or small pets). In an emergency, adults are encouraged to take one full tablet. Children under 18 can receive an effective dose from half a tablet. However, KI is known to be very safe for children, so any child over the age of one (1-year) could take a full tablet with no adverse consequences expected (this makes emergency administration easier).

  • Nuclear Regulatory Commission
  • Defence Intelligence Agency
