Iodine plays a crucial role in thyroid function, metabolism and homonal balance. The primary dietary sources of iodine are seafoods, seaweed and iodized salt.
Iodine is an essential mineral that is not produced by the body and therefore must be obtained through diet and supplementation.
*If you are on a low salt vegan diet and not eating seaweed or kelp then you may not be getting enough of this important nutrient. Iodine deficiency causes poor thyroid function which can leave you feeling tired, exhausted and sluggish.
