Iodine = It helps to make thyroid hormones, which control metabolic activity.

Where found = Seafood and dairy products.

Daily recommendation = 140µg for both males and females.

This article was last medically reviewed by Dr Rob Hicks in September 2005. First published in March 2001

I was thinking, if it's mostly found in seafood and dairy products, vegan should be taking supplements in the form of pills/ tablet instead??

Iodine fortifed salt is common and a good way to sneak a little extra iodine into your diet.

sea salt contains iodine naturally and the supplement is unnecessary if there are sufficient quantities of either in one's diet. Note: Natural sea salt is a healthy replacement for ordinary table salt
