Chemical formula: KI
Common use: disinfection, nutritional supplement, nuclear emergency radiation protection

Potassium Iodide (KI) is a supplement that is used for radiation protection in the event of a nuclear or radiation emergency. There are many brands of potassium iodide available on the market, most in the form of tablets, and one in the form of an oral solution (ThyroShield). The thyroid gland will take up any form of iodine available to it, and if there is not a sufficient amount of iodine in the body and the individual comes in contact with radioactive iodine, such as iodine-131, which is a radioactive byproduct of nuclear plants, it will be absorbed instead. Once in the thyroid, it can cause several diseases, and especially puts the individual at risk for thyroid cancer.

Potassium iodide supplements should only be taken in the event of a nuclear disaster or under the advice of a health care professional. All package directions should be followed, and use should be discontinued as soon as the emergency has passed. In many cases, the local government will advise citizens when this needs to be taken.


potassium iodide Coupons and potassium iodide Deals

Savings for potassium iodide are not normally found in individual coupons for specific products. Instead, consumers should look for discounts, sales, and coupons for the stores that sell these products. Many times potassium iodide supplements can be included as part of a larger purchase which carries a discount or coupon for dollars off or a percentage off the entire purchase. Some stores, such as CVS Pharmacy have rewards programs that earn special dollars back (Extra Bucks in the case of CVS) and these can be applied to purchases at checkout just like any other coupon or voucher. Stores such as drugstore.com and Amazon.com often have discounted or free shipping when certain conditions are met, which can reduce the out-of-pocket cost for these items.
