Nutrients for Thyroid Health:

The thyroid absorbs iodine from the food we eat to produce thyroid hormones. Iodine levels are often insufficient, which causes hormones to fail and have a negative impact on the body. It is often women of childbearing age who suffer from iodine deficiency. This deficiency can be remedied by adding rich foods to your diet. Be careful with the amount, however, as excess iodine will cause thyroid problems and make symptoms worse.

This mineral is essential for the production and regulation of T3 levels. Naturally add selenium-rich food options like snapper, tuna, veal liver, mushrooms, shrimp, cod, and Brazil nuts.

Zinc, copper and iron
These trace nutrients are required for the thyroid to function optimally. Low zinc levels lead to low TSH levels. Copper is needed to produce thyroid hormones. An iron deficiency leads to a decrease in the efficiency of the thyroid gland. So be sure to include veal liver, mushrooms, Swiss chard, kale, and spinach in your daily diet.

Fatty acids
These fatty acids help sensitize our cells to thyroid hormones. Omega-3 fatty acids are obtained from the consumption of fish oil, sardines, salmon, flaxseed, cattle, halibut, soybeans and shrimp.

Coconut oil
Cooking food in coconut oil increases your metabolism and helps you lose weight. The medium-chain fatty acids contained in coconut oil are responsible for this. Usually coconut oil is recommended for people with hypothyroidism.

Antioxidants Vitamins and B Vitamins
Vitamins A, C, and E are powerful antioxidants that help eliminate oxidative stress that can damage the thyroid. Include foods that are high in B vitamins. Look for beef, eggs, chicken, fish, seafood, apples, oranges, apricots, watermelons, carrots, spinach, peas, tomatoes, beets, dates, potatoes, legumes, nuts, strawberries, citrus fruits and whole grains for vitamins A, C and E. Leafy green vegetables, chicken, eggs, legumes, oysters, liver, wheat germ, almonds, peas, pecans, whole grains, and cereals are high in B vitamins and should be included in your thyroid diet.

Nutrients to Avoid:
There are some nutrients that are harmful to the thyroid gland, so these foods should be avoided entirely.

The use of aspartame as an artificial sweetener has been linked to Graves’ disease and many other autoimmune diseases. The chemical in aspartame can cause an immune system reaction in the body that leads to the production of thyroid antibodies and inflammation of the thyroid gland.

Fermented on
Soy contains flavones, and these compounds interfere with the thyroid’s ability to absorb iodine and function optimally. Avoid foods containing soy, including soy burgers, tofu, soy milk, soy sauce, tempeh, miso, and soy oil, and also avoid consuming processed foods that contain soy.

Gluten is also the source of peach. In addition, if you are allergic to it, it can trigger an autoimmune reaction in the body. Foods that contain gluten include wheat, barley, rye, and more processed foods, so avoid them from your daily diet at all costs.

A little vegetables

Vegetables like broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, and Brussels sprouts contain thiocyanates, which can affect the health and function of your thyroid.

Nutrients to Heal Your Thyroid:
There are many diets for thyroid patients and the patient should create a diet plan, but there is no one-size-fits-all plan. Everyone has a unique body that reacts and heals differently. Foods that suit your body may not suit someone else. So, before going on any diet, you should get a proper thyroid test and see your doctor. Based on your reports, let him understand your condition and prescribe medication for you. Additionally, you should consult a nutritionist to help create a nutrition plan for yourself.
