salt vs iodine

You're probably spooning up way too much salt (1/2 tsp a day is enough) but studies indicate we're getting one-third less iodine than we used to (prepared and processed foods don't routinely use iodized salt) and that can slow down your thyroid (nodding off at your desk, are you?). Sprinkle a little granulated nori or kelp on your veggies to get more than your RDA of this very critical micro-nutrient. Read SUPER IMMUNITY FOODS to learn a lot more about sea vegetables and iodine!
