Add these 7 thyroid superfoods to your diet to naturally support thyroid function. What is a thyroid superfood? Well, a superfood is just a food that has more nutrients per unit compared to other foods.

There’s nothing magical about these superfoods except that they provide more of the nutrients that your thyroid needs compared to other choices.

This means that by changing up the foods you put into your body you can ensure that you are giving your thyroid the best shot it has to function at optimal levels.

Please note that these foods will not magically heal or fix your thyroid, though! But, all things being equal, it would be better to consume these foods because of the nutrients and benefits that they provide to your thyroid compared to others.

7 Thyroid Superfoods include:

#1. Blueberries
Blueberries are low in sugar and high in phytonutrients (plant compounds).
Antioxidants in the form of anthocyanin and polyphenols help fight free radicals in your cells and prevent cellular damage.
1 cup of blueberries = 85 calories, 21 grams of carbs, 24% vitamin C, 36% vitamin K.
How much? ½ to 1 cup of blueberries each day, frozen or raw.

#2. Seaweed
Seaweed is the best food source of iodine but the concentration can vary based on numerous factors.
1 gram = 16 to 1984mcg of iodine.

#3. Maca root

Eating brazil nuts is the easiest way to get selenium into your diet aside from supplements.
1 brazil nut = 68 to 91mcg of selenium but concentration can vary by a lot so watch for signs of selenium toxicity.

#5. Coconut oil

How much? 1-2 tablespoons per day.
