There is no question that your thyroid is a major gland that affects your health in many ways. Did you know that your liver and thyroid work together?
So, keep both of them healthy.
Here are some foods that support healthy hormones so you can pamper your thyroid and liver:
Coffee? Isn’t coffee supposed to be bad for your health?
Sorry to say, but the right amount of coffee is actually good for you.
Caffeine blocks the neurotransmitter adenosine, and this allows neurotransmitters like norepinephrine and dopamine to increase. This improves your brain function, and increases you memory, mood, vigilance, energy levels, and supports your liver, which is very therapeutic for your thyroid health.
Shellfish are an excellent source of lean protein, low in saturated fat, provide essential omega-3 fatty acids, and help unblock your liver by providing selenium.
This helps your thyroid because selenium is an important co-factor necessary for the conversion of T4 into T3 that takes place in your liver.
Think of fruit as fuel for your liver health, and when your liver is functioning well, your thyroid benefits, too. Many people avoid fruit if they are monitoring their blood sugar, but fruit is a great way to unblock your Thyroid Hormone Pathway in your liver.
Fruit helps unblock your liver by increasing your liver’s glycogen stores.
Your liver requires glycogen in order to convert T4 into T3. Your liver stores glycogen, and fruit that provides your liver with the best source of sugar to increase its glycogen stores.
And this helps keep your thyroid healthy.
If you eat in moderation and choose the highest quality foods, you can enjoy a cup of coffee and keep your thyroid and liver healthy, too.
