“They complement each other perfectly in terms of their beneficial properties and chemical composition. Saltwater fish is rich in iodine. And iodine is very well absorbed in the presence of selenium, which, by the way, is abundant in unpolished rice. Both iodine and selenium are essential for our thyroid function. And selenium contributes to better assimilation of iodine, ”the nutritionist emphasized.
