"Table salt, by definition, is mostly
"sodium chloride" (what chemists call a "halide" - or a halogen tied to a mineral, making it a "salt" of a halogen). Although bound to sodium, the use of
table salt as a delivery vehicle for Iodine
ironically presents a situation where you ingest far more chlorine, which displaces iodine, than you do the iodine
So maybe afterall the salt flushes can be quite harmful in high doses and cause temporary hypothyroidism, isn't it better to stick with lower doses of Iodine
instead pulling out too much bromide at the same time?
Other sources :
And a study :
It definitely reduces Iodine
concentrations and it seems quite severe.
I personally quite noticed that when I was doing salt flushes I was getting colder (98.2F compared to 99.3F with iodine supplementation).
So is it really worth doing it? And don't tell me that Sea Salt
works differently than table salt
, Sea Salt
also contains chloride...
