2. 35% of the global population doesn’t get enough iodine:
See Table 3.6, page 12.

3.5 Sea salt and table salt have the same basic nutritional value, despite the fact that sea salt is often promoted as being healthier. Sea salt and table salt contain comparable amounts of sodium by weight.
4. Zinc and Selenium play a role in the conversion of the thyroid hormone T4 into its active form, T3:
5. “ZD2 had a substantial increase in RMR of 527 kcal/day at 2 months, with a subsequent increase of 465 kcal/day at 4 months.”
6. Two hours of cold exposure at 19 °C with light-clothing and intermittently putting their legs on an ice block, energy expenditure increased by hundreds of calories in some men
See figure 2a

13. “Drinking 500 ml of water increased metabolic rate by 30%”
14. Two separate studies both demonstrated an increase by up to 25% in resting energy expenditure, one hour after drinking cold water.:
15. However not all evidence supports the theory for water boosting the metabolic rate.:
16. Capsaicin can increase metabolism by activating brown adipose tissues:
17. Evidence shows that chili peppers can promote fat-oxidation and support your metabolism while in energy restriction.:
18. Capsaicin improves the feeling of fullness and thus can reduce your desire to eat after dinner:
