Iodine capsule plus Sea Salt *OR* Morton's Iodized Salt . . .

Answered on August 19, 2014

If the only two choices are those listed above, which is better?

Please don't suggest kelp / sea veggies or just eating more seafood, though I will be making an effort to eat wild salmon several times per week.

Thanks,

Mike

In a separate thread here at PH, someone pointed out that iodine in salt sublimates surprisingly quickly when exposed to air. So, you might not get as much iodine in the salt as you think. I think in capsule form, it would be more stable and predictable qty./dose.

A lot of the iodine products out there are made through an extraction process from kelp, etc. I say go with the iodine capsule (or better yet solution--most of the capsules have tremendous amounts of iodine) and sea salt. Why?...dosing and portion control, as well as balancing iodine versus salt intake. If they are combined (morton's) you wont per se be able to inrease one, while you limit the other.

The iodized salt may have anti-caking agents, which are probably better off avoided.
