The importance of Iodine minerals in our diet

Do you know how important iodine is, for the human body?

  • The human body does not produce iodine on its own, though it uses it in various body functions like,
    • To make Thyroid Hormones
    • For better bone and brain development
    • To fight the infections
    • Neuro-development during the pregnancy
    • Reduces the risk of goiters.

And many more.

The hormones secreted from the thyroid gland keep in check our metabolism, proper growth and functioning of the body, and even for tissue repairs.


What are the symptoms of Iodine Deficiency?

  • Hypothyroidism
  • Pregnancy Complications
  • Unexpected weight gain
  • Fatigue and weakness
  • Hair loss
  • Dry, Flaky skin
  • Changes in Heart Rate

And many more.


Hence, it is essential for us to consume iodine externally. The main sources of it are dairy products, seafood, eggs, etc.

But, what if you are vegan? You will starve of iodine deficiency, which is a matter of concern!

One of the rich sources of iodine is salt that we use while cooking.
