Iodine is a very important mineral for our bodies. And according to many studies, it is the most lacking mineral in the world population since our body does not synthesize it.
The problem also occurs because it is not a mineral found in large quantities in food, except in iodized salt.
When consumed, it is absorbed in the intestinal tract and transported to the bloodstream, it is taken to the thyroid, where it is stored to produce our hormones.
In this way, it assists in the metabolic processes of the body, such as detoxification and the optimization of the use of calories, preventing the storage of excess fat.
Iodine is also important in the function of several organs such as the heart, liver, kidneys, and ovaries.
