The Iodine Is Important
If our body does not have enough iodine, hypothyroidism – low thyroid hormone levels – can be developed. Symptoms of hypothyroidism include sluggishness or fatigue, weight gain, dry skin, and sensitivity to temperature changes. In infants and children, hypothyroidism can affect physical and mental development. Some people with hypothyroidism develop an extremely large thyroid, known as goitre. Iodised salt has proven to be the most effective means of providing one with consistent levels of iodine capable of eliminating these terrible diseases.
Being the main source of sodium, a small amount of salt is important for good health. It helps in maintaining the correct volume of circulating blood and tissue fluids in the body. But when consumed in large amounts, salt makes this ‘correct volume’ its first victim. When the salt levels are too high in the body, kidneys cannot keep up and let salt enter one’s bloodstream and creates hypertension in the body. Too much salt in the blood also causes water retention as salt draws more water into the blood. This further raises the blood pressure. World Health Organization (WHO) recommends less than five grams (about one teaspoon) of salt per person per day. Remember that many processed and convenience foods, preserved foods, and sun-dried foods as well as canned foods contribute to higher intakes of salt.
