A healthy thyroid gland means more energy, easier weight loss and often the disappearance of symptoms like dry skin, heavy periods and hair loss.
Here’s our guide to the superfoods that can help support your thyroid:
Chlorella contains selenium, zinc, iron and Vitamin A that are all essential to thyroid health. It also contains B Vitamins that help the body utilise iodine – a very important nutrient for the thyroid (you can incorporate sea vegetables like nori into your diet to get iodine).
Hypothyriodism is a common condition, where the body does not produce enough thyroid hormones, which can be impacted by gut inflammation and food intolerances. Chlorella draws inflammatory toxins out of the body, and helps to normalise gut bacteria, for a healthy gut lining.
Turmeric has been found to help the body in situations when the thyroid becomes overactive (Indian Journal of Endocrinology and Metabolism, 2015).
Hashimoto’s and Grave’s disease are autoimmune conditions, where the body’s own immune system attacks cells of the thyroid. Curcumin, the powerful compound in Turmeric has been shown to help modulate the body’s immune reaction, helping it to function normally (Nutrients, 2019).
Maca nourishes the pituitary gland (our ‘master gland’) which stimulates the rest of the glands in the body to produce hormones at the correct levels. This means balancing levels of thyroid hormones, but also lowering the stress hormone cortisol when it is too high – as this can negatively affect the thyroid.
Cinnamon helps to maintain healthy levels of thyroid hormones because it can reduce the amount of insulin we produce – since overproduction of one hormone means others suffer. Cinnamon can reduce blood sugar levels and increase our sensitivity to insulin, which is especially important when eating too many fast carbs or sugars.
