Thyroid: Minimize Goitrogens for Optimal Metabolism + Weight
Posted on 19 August 2011
Here is a great list of foods that slow down your thyroid. They are also known as goitrogens. Isn't that a weird word? It's best to avoid these foods in their raw form - lightly cooked is a better option.
- Caffeine. Yes, not a popular food to give up, but it will help your thyroid to get off all caffeine.
- Soybeans (and soybean products such as tofu, soybean oil, soy flour, soy lecithin)
- Pine nuts
- Bamboo shoots
- Sweet Potatoes
- Vegetables in the genus Brassica
