Food to add to your diet when having hypothyroidism

When suffering from hypothyroidism or having an underactive thyroid it’s important to have a balanced diet along with the necessary medications required to manage the condition.

A few of the foods that help boost the effectiveness of the thyroid gland include:

  • Foods rich in omega 3 fatty acids: tuna, salmon, and other fatty fish.

  • Selenium-rich foods: nuts, seeds, fish, legumes, eggs, and spinach.

  • Starchy plants and fresh fruits: peaches, sweet potato, and strawberries.

  • Vegetables: broccoli, cabbage, spinach, and cauliflower.

  • Iodine-rich foods (in case of iodine deficiency-related thyroid): eggs, fish, dairy products, and seaweeds.

The whole idea is to plan a healthy balanced diet that prevents excess weight gain, boosts immunity, improves the effectiveness of the thyroid gland, and provides adequate energy during the day.
