ascent iodine is a supplemental form of iodine thought to be more safe and effective than potassium iodide. Nascent iodine holds an atomic form of iodine with an incomplete number of electrons, giving it a high electromagnetic charge. The body can seamlessly absorb and utilize nascent iodine for metabolic and detoxification processes, making it more effective as a supplement for the body.

Kelp tablets... they are very inexpensive.
Have you tried it.

I took a kelp capsule every day for a week and started having a weird clicking feeling in my throat. I stopped taking it everyday and the clicking feeling stopped. Now I only take the kelp capsule once in a great while. From talking to my doctor, it seems my thyroid was having a reaction from too much iodine and that was from kelp, which is rich in iodine.
I would talk to a doctor about any supplementing with any iodine supplements. If your body doesn't need it, you most very likely shouldn't take it.
Here is a link to a site that discusses iodine and the type that was brought up in the OP. This site discusses many different things and the link is to a page that tells what the recommended daily allowances are and what foods are naturally rich in iodine,
