The acupuncturist that I visit is recommending that I increase my intake of iodine and magnesium. To do this, he says to eat more clams, mussels, seaweed, and caviar. It sounds relatively easy, but in reality, I just don’t eat those things very much. I like them, but I don’t crave them.
This week I was introduced to the vegan source of Omega-3 supplements and found that they are sourced from algae which also contains iodine and magnesium. Great! I can get all three supplements in one easy dose.
When I looked closer at taking the vegan form of Omega-3, I found a very interesting article: http://www.precisionnutrition.com/all-about-algae. It talks all about how you don’t want to lick the side of your goldfish tank, but that it is good to get some fungus among us.
I encourage you to check these things out. #Vegan doesn’t necessarily mean icky. It can mean beneficial is ways we didn’t expect too!
