Iodine

Iodine is a very important mineral for thyroid health. Iodine makes the thyroid hormone that helps with metabolism. Metabolism is needed to sustain life by converting the food we eat into the energy we need to survive.

The deficiency of iodine can lead to hypothyroidism and contribute to cognitive disabilities in children whose mother was deficient while pregnant. As is the case with most nutrients, the role it plays is very complex. The best thing to do is to ensure that you are not deficient.
