Sometimes you are not feeling your best, and this can be nudged away as stress and maybe a taxed immune system. When it persists, you need to take a moment and assess exactly how you are feeling. Symptoms such as tiredness, sudden weight gain and that fuzzy head feeling and/or memory loss can be ascribed to an unhealthy thyroid function. This can influence from your emotions to even the appearance of cellulite. Eating foods for a healthy thyroid function can put the skip back in your step and have you feeling like your great self, naturally.
Your thyroid is found in the front of your neck and is in the shape of a butterfly. We are dependent on this organ to be in top form as it regulates our metabolism and it also has a huge impact on our endocrine function.
Your thyroid needs iodine to function optimally, and what we eat, or don’t eat, can influence the production of hormones made by this important organ. That being said, there are also foods that inhibit the iodine metabolism in your body. These foods are called goitrogens and should be avoided where possible.
Foods for a healthy Thyroid Function:
- Sushi! The sea veggies containing dulse, kelp and nori are packed with iodine
- Brazil nuts
- Coconut oil
- Cod liver oil
- Egg yolks
- Grass-fed butter
Food to avoid when you have an under-active Thyroid function:
- Soy and soy-type foods
- Brussel sprouts
- Mustard greens
