In this journey through minerals we have known a little more about Calcium and Iron, and its importance for the body. Today the issue is the IODINE. The body of an adult contains an average of around 20 to 50 mg of iodine, and most of it is found in the thyroid gland. Iodine is essential for the formation of the thyroid hormone that secretes this gland, which is important for the regulation of metabolism. Thyroid hormones in children support normal growth and development, including mental development.
It is important to know how to optimize the absorption of iodine and foods that contain higher concentrations of the mineral.
- Iodine is better absorbed when our intestine is balanced, this is achieved by investing in the consumption of more natural and organic foods (if possible) and consuming enough water and enough omegas to keep our bowels moving.
- Foods of marine origin and iodized salt contain the highest levels of iodine. (a good portion of sushi, even without fish, is a good source of iodine if you have seaweed and salt)
