I love the Amy's too! I agree with Seagirl's post, and I also learned something that I didn't know, from my doctor. He showed me some studies that are linking an increase in hypothyroidism with the move away from salt - both for blood pressure reasons AND because the new gourmet sea salts are hot right now. Good ol' Morton's was iodized, and many of us have cut salt - which was a serious source of supplemental iodine! Mind you, we did have some discussion about the increased awareness of thyroid issues, and about the other things that stymie thyroid output, but he also did point out that certain levels of sodium are necessary for the body's function and not to try to avoid all of it. His recommendation to me was not to go much below 1000mg. Sodium does make me retain water ... but if I drink enough water, it's not an issue. Just something to toss into the mix!
