Here at Betr, we omit iodized salt. Too much sodium brings on additional inflammation, something that we are trying to remove. It also increases our blood pressure. On the flip side we do need some salt as iodine is a dietary staple for our overall health.
Iodine is a trace mineral that regulates the thyroid gland, which aids in tissue repair, balances metabolism and promotes growth and development. Iodine is also helpful in strengthening the health of hair follicles.
We can insure that we are getting adequate amounts of iodine by getting it in through our foods. Along with pink Himalayan sea salt, eggs, cod, shrimp, oysters, garlic, seaweed, sesame seeds are all great sources of iodine.
