I did just read, though, to take them separate. I now take the magnascent first, wait just ten minutes, then take the SSKI . (I read when you take it on an empty stomach, it only takes 10 minutes to be absorbed into the blood stream.)
I also read that while you're building up your Iodine sufficiency, it's best to take the (nascent or detoxified form of) Iodine 4 or 5 times a day...on an empty stomach. No more than a few drops are necessary.
***For those that ask why I now take SSKI : I did do very well on the "detoxified" alone - until it started drawing out the mercury from my teeth. I have since realized just how important it was to have my Amalgams removed. (late 2007). The mercury was not removed by a dentist well-versed in safe removal, and I got toxic with it. The sski is helping keep the mercury out of my thyroid while my body detoxifies.***
