Product Notes:

RadBlock helps block radioactive iodine and has been sold to Canadian nuclear power plants and the Government of Canada since 2003.

Iodine is an essential element that is mainly used in the production of thyroid hormones by the thyroid gland (although other organs in the body also require iodine in order to function normally). Potassium iodide (chemical formula KI) is used also as a nutritional supplement to help the thyroid block and resist radioiodine exposure from the environment and ingestion of food. RadBlock thyroid blocking agent is intended for use in nuclear emergencies involving the release of radioiodine.

Potassium iodide (KI) use in Canada: RadBlock™ may be issued by authorities to those in an area experiencing a nuclear emergency or potential emergency. KI pills are for use in addition to standard preventative measures for avoiding exposure to radiation including evacuation, shelter, and the careful care and consumption of food and water.

Health Canada Natural Product Number: 02248172 (KI Canada).

Our most recently received stock of Radblock has a 'best before' shelf life of Jan. 2029. We also have a limited number of discounted bottles with a product best before date of April, 2019. However, according to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, when potassium iodide tablets are stored under the appropriate conditions specified on the manufacturer's label directions, they do not lose their effectiveness over time because of the inherent stability of the chemical form. When expired products were tested, the only finding was that some tablets took slightly longer to dissolve than they are meant to; if that is the case, they can simply be crushed and mixed with juice or water before ingesting.
