Eat This For HASHIMOTO’S (Slow Thyroid)

Take two of these each day to help repair your thyroid. Watch this short video to learn about the benefits of Brazil nuts.

2:53 How many Brazil nuts per day for your thyroid?

Today, I’m going to tell you why two Brazil nuts each day may help with hypothyroid conditions. Most hypothyroid conditions are really Hashimoto’s disease, which is an autoimmune condition.

14 million people are diagnosed with Hashimoto’s each year in the US alone. Hashimoto’s puts you at risk for developing other types of autoimmune disease.

Selenium is a trace mineral needed in very small amounts. It’s involved in over 25 different genes related to antioxidants. It also has potent anti-inflammatory effects.

Selenium-rich foods include seafood, shellfish, organ meats, and Brazil nuts. Brazil nuts have the highest concentrations of selenium. Two Brazil nuts each day give you 200 mcg of selenium. Several randomized controlled trials found that selenium reduces the antibodies that attack the thyroid.

When thyroid-stimulating hormone increases, it does not connect with the thyroid, leading to a hypothyroid condition. Selenium can also help with this condition.

If you have Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism, lots of hydrogen peroxide is generated. Selenium helps to neutralize hydrogen peroxide. Selenium helps control the T helper cells, which orchestrate your immune response. It also feeds the T-reg cells, which help prevent autoimmune diseases.

Your brain, immune system, and reproductive system depend heavily on selenium, so sometimes, there’s not much left for the thyroid to function correctly. This may lead to Hashimoto’s symptoms, which include feeling tired, cold, weight gain, hair loss, and brittle hair.

Try eating two to four Brazil nuts daily to support your thyroid gland's health. Don’t do more than that because it’s possible to overdo it with selenium. In addition to selenium, ensure you’re getting enough sunlight or consume high doses of vitamin D3. Vitamin D3 can help regulate an overactive immune system.

    These are so freaking good! I craved them sooo bad. (Randomly after having an auto immune issue) I started eating them for the selenium but ate like 8. DANGER!!! My kidneys paid for it. SO ONLY EAT 2 they’re yummy 🤤

      I wish it said that on the packaging. I was also eating 6 a day and didn’t know it was too much. XD

      ​@Marysol1fi Try drinking a glass of water with 2 tblsp apple cider vinegar once in the morning and once at night before going to bed. Always drink clear water afterward to rinse it off your teeth. This works for me.
      Plus, whatever the amount of water you currently drink, increase it.
      Study Dr. Berg’s videos on kidney health. He’s the best…😊❤

      So true. I was happier and felt better when I did more outdoor activities even if it was just walking. What scares me about sun exposure is skin cancer and yes I know but I don’t like wearing SPF. It’s sticky it’s horrible and is chuck full of its own chemicals.

    • @bubblebrainbow on June 28, 2024 at 1:23 pm

      The most common places people get skin cancer is scalp, face, ears, and hands. So wear a rimmed hat and some gloves if you don’t like sunscreen!

    I was under the impression that Hashimotos was rare. Wow, I love Brazil nuts and I believe they help me in not getting any wrinkles and I’m 44 years old. My family’s genes are horrible and everyone ages quickly. Not me.

    I used to have a very strong cough that refused cure. I even went to the hospital, they administered drug but I still suffered from cough. I decided to go for this. And I can tell you for free that I have not had that severe cough like before. It’s been 2 years since

    Just make sure you buy raw, unsalted or dry roasted nuts. Many nuts are roasted in seed oils and heavily salted. We now know how bad seed oils are for our bodies.
