Thyroid-harming foods

Your thyroid is a neck gland. It generates hormones that operate with numerous physiological systems, including releasing and managing thyroid hormones that govern metabolism.

Hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, thyroiditis, and Hashimoto's thyroiditis may be caused by iodine deficiency or heredity.

Hembree adds weight gain is a common hypothyroidism symptom. "If you have unintentional weight gain, especially if it doesn't match your eating and exercise habits.

Hembree says, "Goitrogens are foods that contain a compound called "goitrin," which can stop the body from making thyroid hormones when there isn't enough iodine."

Uncooked cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage are goitrogens, says Hembree. You may heat veggies to reduce their bad effects.

Hembree thinks heating cruciferous veggies reduces goitrogenic activity. "Uncooked cruciferous vegetables and soy in moderation do not threaten thyroid function. Dietitians advise avoiding millet."
