You prob­a­bly know that for the nor­mal func­tion­ing of the thy­roid gland, which pro­duces hor­mones respon­si­ble for the growth, devel­op­ment and well-being of a per­son, it is nec­es­sary to con­sume a suf­fi­cient amount of iodine. And today Lisa will tell you exact­ly which prod­ucts are the source of this ele­ment, and there­fore should always be present on your table.

Haven’t you been able to fall in love with sea­weed? And very in vain! 100 g of this prod­uct con­tains the dai­ly norm of iodine for an adult. If the taste and smell of kelp does not make you want to eat, replace it with oth­er sea­weed, such as hiashi, nori, or wakame.

Fish and seafood

Fish and oth­er inhab­i­tants of the deep sea fil­ter iodine from the water in which they live. That is why nutri­tion­ists-endocri­nol­o­gists advise their patients to con­sume at least 100 grams of seafood per day. Why don’t you fol­low this rec­om­men­da­tion?


You only need one glass of milk to cov­er 37% of your body’s dai­ly require­ment for iodine. In kefir, sour cream, cream, yogurt and cheese, there is a lit­tle less use­ful ele­ment, but these prod­ucts should also be includ­ed in the diet.

Fruits and veg­eta­bles

Straw­ber­ries, per­sim­mons, bananas, buck­wheat, green beans and even pota­toes will help replen­ish iodine reserves. The main thing to con­sid­er is that iodine is destroyed under the influ­ence of high tem­per­a­ture, so it is bet­ter to eat veg­eta­bles and fruits fresh.
