Health Tip For August

Nutrition for your Thyroid.

The Thyroid is the master gland of the body. The thyroid hormones control the metabolism of the body and therefore is the key component in weight loss. Thyroid hormone is primarily made of iodine and the amino acid Tyrosine.

Individuals and cultures that consume healthy amounts of sea vegetation have far fewer issues with weight gain than cultures which consume less sea vegetation. The Iodine in the sea vegetation is what nourishes the thyroid gland and promotes a faster metabolism. Simply put, the faster your metabolism burns, the faster you will lose unwanted excess body weight.

We suggest eating more sea vegetables such as Kelp, Dulse and Nori which are delicious and easy to find in your local health food store. Also, supplementing with a thyroid herbal combination can be very helpful as well. As much as 10% of the population suffers unknowingly from hypothyroidism. Hypothyroidism primarily affects women. Some symptoms of hypothyroidism are weight gain, lack of energy and difficulty in regulating body temperature. Eating to support thyroid function is a smart beginning, and could possibly save you a trip to your physician.
