SUPER FOODS THAT CAN HELP BENEFIT YOUR THYROID
Your thyroid gland controls hormonal responses within the body that affect your mood, energy, metabolism, focus and vitality. It also affects your weight, adrenal glands, skin appearance, and your overall digestive health. When your thyroid isn’t working properly, things start to slow down pretty quickly.
An under-active thyroid can lead to fatigue, depression, headaches, weight gain, dry skin, loss of hair, constipation and lack of focus. Though an overactive thyroid can also occur, it’s much less common than an under-active thyroid, which is what most people suffer from today. So what’s the best way to take care of your thyroid? Mostly by what you put on your plate each day.
Remember that the best thing you can do for your thyroid is to always choose whole, real foods that are nourishing on a cellular level. Embracing healthy fats, protein, fruits and vegetables will simply take things up a few notches. For a healthy thyroid, and a healthy body overall, be sure to avoid gluten, grains and soy-based options, along with refined sugar and most processed foods.
