Kelp Me Kelp You
Knowledge Drop | Which mineral, found in kelp, plays a vital role in thyroid health and a steady metabolism?
The top two sources of iodine in the western diet are iodized salt and dairy products (an iodine solution is used to clean the cow’s udders, so a little ends up in the cow’s milk). Given that we want to reduce salt intake and are better off avoiding dairy, we need to consider other sources in our diet. Regular consumption of seaweed can be an option, however levels vary depending on the species. Kelp granules can be purchased and sprinkled onto food and are an excellent source of iodine. Everyone should ensure adequate iodine in their diet, but pregnant and breastfeeding women have the highest needs and should be especially vigilant.
