Soy powder helps reduce the damaging effects of salt and kelp helps to ensure you get some iodine in your diet. Many people now use non-iodized forms of salt (sea salt, kosher). Iodine was added by government health agencies many years ago to help prevent thyroid complications.
Add these ingredients to a shaker and place it on your table to replace the unhealthy white table salt.
