Health Tip: Pay Attention to Iodine

Source: http://www.chooseveg.com

- Iodine is needed for healthy thyroid function which regulates metabolism. Both, too much or too little iodine can result in abnormal thyroid metabolism.

- Iodine is sometimes found in plant foods, but it is an inconsistent source. The amount of iodine in the plant foods varies greatly depending on the soil it was grown in.

- The most reliable vegan sources of iodine are:

  • seaweed such as kelp (kombu)
  • iodized salt
  • iodine supplements
