7 foods that are beneficial for people with hypothyroidism

The thyroid gland produces hormones that regulate mood, metabolism, energy levels, body temperature, heart rate and blood pressure.

Fresh vegetables

People with hypothyroidism often gain weight.

People with this disease need to limit cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cabbage…) to 140 g per day.

Nuts

A 2017 review by the University of Coimbra, Portugal, based on 69 studies, found that macadamia nuts, Brazil nuts and hazelnuts contain selenium that helps the thyroid function better.

Patients need to pay attention to their diet because many nuts have high fat content.

Macadamia nuts are rich in selenium and are beneficial for people with hypothyroidism.

Bean

Beans provide plenty of energy if hypothyroidism leaves the body exhausted.

Whole grains

Constipation is a common symptom in people with hypothyroidism.

Milk

Vitamin D-fortified milk helps improve TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone) levels in people with hypothyroidism.

A condition related to hypothyroidism is Hasimoto’s thyroiditis which can lead to changes that contribute to intestinal problems such as heartburn.

Fatty fish

Omega-3 fatty acids found in fatty fish such as salmon, tuna, and sardines are good for patients.

Fish also provides selenium (highly concentrated in the thyroid gland) to help reduce inflammation.

Seaweed

Seaweed contains fiber, calcium and vitamins A, B, C, E, K, and is high in iodine.
