Thyroid Food Blend
Beet SuperFood Blends and Good Food Medicine Blends are a great way to increase nutrient intake and fill dietary voids. Since they are already macerated they are not taxing on the digestive system. Because they are in powder form and you mix them in liquids or smoothies, it makes the nutrients highly bioavailable, which means that nutrients reach your bloodstream quickly and are absorbed faster than eating fruits and vegetables in whole food form.
It is estimated that as many as 27 million people suffer from a thyroid condition – mostly from an under active thyroid condition called hypothyroidism. And some studies show that even mild thyroid impairment can result in a whole host of health issues.
The thyroid makes hormones that regulate energy, metabolism, mood, heart rate and other important functions. When it’s out of whack, symptoms can include cognitive impairment, weight gain, fatigue, dry skin, hair loss, nail changes, high cholesterol, memory loss, trouble thinking, and mood issues including anxiety and depression.
If you suspect your thyroid is not functioning properly, check with your health-care provider and ask them to run a complete thyroid panel.
In the meantime, you can support your thyroid and overall health with Thyroid Food, a blend of the best thyroid nourishing foods on the planet!
Ingredients Are Derived From Whole, Organic Foods Which Are The Best Sources of Nutrients For The Body To Recognize, Absorb and Use.
Thyroid Food Nourishing Blend:
Apples are great for detoxifying the body which helps to keep your thyroid working smoothly. They are also rich in pectins which help clear heavy metals. Heavy metals are known to slow thyroid function. Having metals (like mercury) in your body can keep your thyroid from being able to use the iodine it needs to make thyroid hormones. Apples flush out the bad stuff.
Strawberries (non-goitrogen) are one of the few fruits that naturally contain iodine and iodine is needed to make thyroid hormone. Studies show that even a mild iodine deficiency can lead to thyroid problems. Strawberries are also high in Vitamin C which helps to correct thyroid hormone abnormalities and helps to reduce antibodies.
Bananas are a great source of magnesium which is needed to convert the inactive thyroid hormone T4 into the active thyroid hormone T3. Without this conversion, cells do not receive the more active T3. When magnesium levels are low, our thyroid is not able to function correctly. Magnesium is also needed for the absorption of Vitamin D, a vitamin often found to be low in hypothyroid individuals.
Bananas also contain Selenium which contributes to the antioxidant defense in the thyroid, by removing oxygen free radicals generated during the production of thyroid hormones. Selenium also drives down antibodies, is needed for the conversion of T4 to T3 and strengthens the immune system.
Carrots are a great source of Vitamin A. This vitamin plays an important role in thyroid hormone metabolism and has been shown to significantly reduce high TSH. Other studies show it reduces the risk of clinical hypothyroid too. Night blindness, urinary tract infections and keratosis pilaris, are all rooted in Vitamin A deficiency which is often found in people with low thyroid function.
Pumpkin Seeds are high in zinc which is critical for the synthesis of thyroid hormones. Zinc also binds to excess estrogen and escorts it out of the body. Estrogen is known to block the absorption of iodine and without iodine, we cannot make thyroid hormone. Zinc is an anti-viral and it strengthens the immune system. Zinc deficiency can lead to hypothyroidism.
Bioflavonoids derived from whole food Quercetin which is the best bioflavonoid to help stabilize your thyroid tissue.
Guggul is an Ayurvedic thyroid boosting adaptogenic herb that can support the thyroid by promoting the body’s conversion of T4 thyroid hormone to T3 thyroid hormone. It has been shown to be effective for arthritis, lowering high cholesterol, weight loss and resolving skin conditions.
How To Use: Add 1 Teaspoon to water, smoothies, breakfasts or snacks.
