Diet and thyroid health

Thyroid gland

The thyroid gland is a gland located in the neck and plays a very important role in the body's metabolism. It produces two important hormones, triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4), which help regulate how the body uses energy and affect many of the body's functions. Thyroid hormones are necessary to maintain the body's homeostasis, including regulation of body temperature, heartbeat, metabolism, and more. If the thyroid isn't working properly, it can lead to various health problems, including hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid) and hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid).


  • Ashwagandha: Has anti-inflammatory properties, where some thyroid diseases have a link to inflammation. Ashwagandha may help to reduce inflammation and thereby reduce the impact of the thyroid gland. Can also help the body adapt to stress. Chronic stress can negatively affect thyroid health, so reducing stress levels can be beneficial for people with thyroid problems.
  • Lucuma: Lucuma is a fruit from South America that is rich in antioxidants, fiber and vitamins, including vitamins A and C. Although not directly linked to thyroid health, its nutritional properties may be good for overall health and immune system support.
  • Maca: Maca is a root plant that is often used as a nutritional supplement. It has been considered to have adaptogenic properties that can help the body deal with stress. Stress management is important to support thyroid health.
  • Cinnamon: Cinnamon is a spice not directly linked to thyroid health, but it has been shown to have potential benefits for blood sugar control and can help prevent blood sugar swings, which is important for people with thyroid problems.
  • Iodine: Iodine is an important mineral that the thyroid gland needs to produce its hormones. For example. found in fish, shellfish and algae. But remember that it should be a controlled iodine intake, because too much iodine can be harmful.
  • Selenium: Selenium is an antioxidant, which helps protect the thyroid gland. For example. found in nuts, seeds and legumes.
  • B vitamins: B vitamins, especially B12 and B6 are important for thyroid health. For example. found in fish, meat, eggs and green leafy vegetables.
  • Fiber-rich diet: Rich in fiber helps you manage your weight and regulate blood sugar levels, important for thyroid problems.
  • Balanced diet: Have a balanced diet with a good mix of proteins, carbohydrates and healthy fats to support the body's metabolism. Therefore, avoid over consumption of soy products and caffeinated beverages, as some people react negatively to this.
  • Gluten and lactose intolerance. Some people with thyroid problems may be sensitive to gluten or lactose in particular. So try to avoid them in your diet if you are sensitive to it.
