Hello all I have protein smoothies for breakfast everyday and wanted too add a super green powder I found a total nutrition powder by better you but it contains kelp/iodine. Unfortunately it doesn't state how much you get per serving but I was wondering would it be bad too take daily? Ingredients arePre-Sprouted Barley, Flaxseed, Quinoa, Bilberry Fruit, Whole Apple, Carrot,Turmeric, Kelp, Spirulina and Barley

Nettie, spirulina and kelp aren't recommended for hypothyroid patients as they usually contain a high iodine content which can be damaging to the thyroid and induce autoimmune disease (Hashimoto's) and increase Hashi flares.


Thanks clutter I'm going too make up my own using wheat grass carrot and spinach no as fancy but I hope its safe x
