Hey Guys, in the below video I cover 5 kind of uncommon but really great foods for the thyroid gland.
The First Step in Getting to the Cause of Your Thyroid or Weight Problem is to Take My Thyroid and Weight Loss Evaluation
Many of these foods should be part of your thyroid eating program.
However, if you have Hashimoto’s you will need to be cautions of a few of them.
When we are looking at the thyroid gland we are looking at a gland that controls the metabolic rate of our body, the health of our hair, skin and nails, our moods, our weight and many other bodily functions.
In other thyroid videos I cover the general foods, and the amounts of those foods, a person should eat to support healthy thyroid function and weight loss.
However, this video covers 5 uncommon foods that are potentially great for the thyroid gland.
A few key nutrients for thyroid function would be:
Iodine is needed for the formation of T4 also known as thyroxine or thyroid hormone. T4 is relatively inactive in the body and must be converted to T3 in the liver.
Selenium is an important trace mineral that helps to convert your T4 to T3, which is the active thyroid hormone that helps us lose weight and get healthy. Selenium is high in Brazil nuts.
Tyrosine, an amino acid, combines with iodine to make thyroid hormone.
A person that suspects or knows that they have thyroid problems or a thyroid disease should of course first consult with their medical doctor before trying anything in this video.
