Nascent iodine is a consumable form of iodine, and it contains an electromagnetic charge. Dr. Edgar Casey first worked with the electromagnetic charged form of iodine (ionized iodine) and was specific on how to formulate and produce the solution. Risingsun makes its Nascent (electromagnetic charged or ionized) iodide based on Edgar Casey's original formula and specifications. It is handmade just as the formula requires. No metal or atomized processing is used to manufacture Risingsun's iodine supplements, they affect the electromagnetic charge and purity. Unlike potassium iodide solution Nascent iodine solution must be prepared at a specific temperature and remain at that temperature for 10 days. Risingsun's Nascent Solution is the only Nascent product based on the original production technique specified by Edgar Casey. The iodine required for production of the Nascent solution is brine iodide, it must be pure and contaminant free. Distilled water is also essential, it is dead water, no minerals are present to effect the electromagnetic charged iodine.
Risingsun's 1mg per drop Nascent iodine solution is made with ionized elemental iodide and distilled water. When taking any iodine supplement it must be as pure as possible, free from heavy metals, impurities and contaminants.
Iodide, essentially, is the only form of iodine found in nature. Iodide is the ionic state of iodine, occurring when iodine forms a salt with another element such as potassium. In this form, iodide can be ingested or applied topically. The potassium iodide used in Risingsun's Nascent Ionic Iodide-Iodine Solution Supplement is extracted from an ancient underground brine mine. Iodide brine mining is the extraction of useful materials (elements, compounds) which are naturally dissolved in brine.
Elemental Iodine is a non-metallic, dark-gray/purple-black, lustrous, solid element. Iodine is the most electropositive halogen and the least reactive of the halogens even if it can still form compounds with many elements. Elemental iodine (I2) is toxic if taken orally undiluted. Direct contact with skin can cause damage, and solid iodine crystals should be handled with care. Solutions with high elemental iodine concentration, such as tincture of iodine and Lugols Solutions over 5%, are capable of causing tissue damage.
Not all Iodine Supplements are alike!
The sources of iodine utilized in iodine supplements are not the same. Sources of iodine used in iodine supplements can be from seafood such as fish and shellfish. Seaweed (such as kelp, nori, kombu, and wakame) is another source of iodine. Brine is another source for iodine used in iodine supplements.
People have allergies to seafood such as fish and shellfish, so these sources pose a health hazard. Iodine isn't considered to be an allergen (something that triggers an allergic response) iodine is essential for thyroid and hormonal functions in the body. A seafood allergy is sometimes confused as an iodine allergy because seafood is known to contain iodine. It’s not the iodine in seafood that triggers the allergic reaction, it's an allergy to seafood such as shellfish or other fish.
Although seaweed is safe to eat in plant form, taking sea kelp supplements can be dangerous. Seaweed contains concentrated amounts of heavy metals that can be toxic to humans in supplement form. Kelp, for instance purifies the oceans and extracts and absorbs heavy metals.
The best source for iodine used in iodine supplements is from brine mining, this iodine is produced naturally underground in the form of iodide which is then combined with potassium. Risingsun only uses brine mined potassium iodide. Brine mining is the extraction of useful materials (elements or compounds) which are naturally dissolved in brine. Brines are a major source of iodine supply worldwide. Major deposits occur in Japan and the United States. Iodide is recovered from deep brines pumped to the surface as a byproduct of oil and natural gas production. Brine mining is the extraction of useful materials (elements or compounds) which are naturally dissolved in brine. It differs from solution mining or in-situ leaching in that those methods inject water or chemicals to dissolve materials which are in a solid state; in brine mining, the materials are already dissolved. Around 500 BC, the ancient Chinese dug hundreds of brine wells, so brine mining has been used for about 2567 years, give or take a few years.
