Ionizing radiation has been officially classified as a carcinogen by both the World Health Organization and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. This is of significant concern because Americans are now exposed to approximately seven times more radiation on average than they were in 1980.

BioShield-Radiation® is the first patented formulation specifically designed to address oxidative stress produced by ionizing radiation. It has been shown in numerous scientific studies to be safe, non-toxic and maximally effective in decreasing free radicals (unstable cells that can cause damage to DNA, leading to the possible development of cancer).

Developed by the radiation biologists and antioxidant scientists of Premier Micronutrient Corporation, BioShield-Radiation®'s free radical scavenging formulations of pharmaceutical grade ingredients reach a high blood level shortly after ingestion and are suitable for pre and post-treatment for medical and dental x-ray procedures, CT scans, nuclear medicine tests, PET scans and PET/CT exams. Additionally, they are appropriate for individuals taking airline flights and for those who are exposed on a recurrent basis (either occupation or environment-related) to ionizing radiation.


  • Natural
  • Cosmic (radiation from space)
  • Terrestrial (radioactive material in soil, water, vegetation)
  • Internal radiation (from isotopes within the human body)
  • Man-Made
  • Occupational (x-ray technologists, flight crews, nuclear power plant workers)
  • Occasional (medical testing, consumer aviation)

Comparison to Potassium Iodide

BioShield-Radiation® effectively addresses the major factors in ionizing radiation damage to all cells and tissues. Potassium iodide only saturates the thyroid gland with non-radioactive iodine so it cannot take up radioactive iodine. Thus, BioShield-Radiation® potentially protects the entire body whereas potassium iodide at best can protect only the thyroid gland.

Because BioShield-Radiation® affects the basic underlying causes of radiation damage, it can protect against all radioisotopes from nuclear or other sources, such as iodine, strontium, cesium, uranium, plutonium, xenon, zirconium, etc. Potassium iodide can only protect against radioactive iodine.

The components in BioShield-Radiation® are all "generally regarded as safe" with over 50 years of consumption by the public. The combination of these components has been thoroughly tested in animal and human studies, as well as consumed by the public for 15 years without adverse side effects. Consumption of potassium iodide has been reported to cause several side effects, including hypothyroidism, goiters, gastritis, nausea and vomiting, and diarrhea.
