iOSAT™ tablets, Potassium Iodide (KI) radiation pills for nuclear fallout. Maybe you’ve heard of these pills before. Maybe not. It’s something that you might consider keeping with your other medicines, just in case. I do. Here’s some of what you need to know..
You might call them radiation pills. But they are specifically for thyroid protection from nuclear fallout – be it a nuclear weapon attack, or a reactor meltdown.
>> If and when ‘something happens’, it may be too late to get radiation pills. Supplies will be depleted near immediately from ensuing panic.
Radioactive fallout, from powerplants or weapons, can travel long distances. Almost all of the thyroid cancer from Chernobyl took place more than 30 miles from the reactor.
Thyroid cancer, especially among children, is the most common and dangerous effect from radiation exposure. More than 90% of the cancer at Chernobyl was thyroid related.
KI’s value was demonstrated at Chernobyl. More than 18 million people received the drug, and all were protected. But in areas where KI was not available, thyroid damage, including cancer, among children spiked to epidemic rates. All preventable.~ from the mfgr, Anbex
The active ingredient is potassium iodide (KI). It is a form of extremely soluble iodine. As a result, the body quickly absorbs and stores it in the thyroid gland. The reason why it works is as follows.. The potassium iodide saturates the thyroid gland and fills it to capacity.
Why is this important? The body will reject the radioactive form and excrete it (RAI – radioactive iodine – a radioactive contaminant that causes thyroid cancer).
iOSAT™ is apparently the only adult full-strength tablets for radiation protection
that have passed all FDA tests for purity, quality, safety, and efficacy.

How Many Radiation Tablets and How Often To Take Them..
Recommendation: Store one pack of 14 tablets per person for every location frequented (home, work, relative’s home, overnight bag, etc..).
iOSAT Potassium Iodide tablets (a.k.a. radiation pills) should be immediately available in the event of a nuclear radiation emergency (attack / fallout / meltdown).
To be most effective, the first dose should be taken 2-3 hours BEFORE exposure. However few of us know the time or the hour for if-and-when “it” happens.. So, as soon as is reasonably possible afterwards – assuming you are or will be in an affected area. Oh, and to cover my arss, “use as directed by public health officials”.
The manufacturer says, “Administer one dose every day (same time) until your family has evacuated to an uncontaminated area, and then stop administering the tablets (as directed by public health officials). Any remaining tablets will still be foil-sealed and available for a future need.”
Radiation Tablets For Children
From Anbex, the FDA approved manufacturer, “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 could take a full tablet with no adverse consequences expected.”
What About The Shelf Life or Expiration Date?
iOSAT Tablets are FDA approved for 10 years from date of manufacture and should be stored unopened in a dry environment at room temperature.
