Why should you choose iodised salt?

Iodine is a trace mineral commonly found in seafood, dairy products, grains and eggs. It is often combined with table salt to help prevent iodine deficiency. Your thyroid gland uses iodine to produce thyroid hormones, which aid in tissue repair, regulate metabolism and promote proper growth and development. In addition to its essential role in thyroid health, iodine may play a central role in several other aspects of your health such as immunity and weight management. Deficiencies in micronutrients like iodine are increasingly prevalent in certain areas, especially in regions where iodized salt is uncommon or there are low levels of iodine in the soil. Hence it is very important to consume iodised salt. 🧂
