There is one really important nutrient involved in hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism: selenium.
90% of hypothyroid problems are related to an autoimmune disease called Hashimoto’s. Most cases of hyperthyroidism are also related to an autoimmune condition.
An autoimmune condition is a situation where you have cells, or antibodies, made by your own body that attack your thyroid. These antibodies prevent your thyroid from functioning and also create a lot of inflammation.
You may know that iodine is really important for the thyroid, but so is selenium. Most of the selenium in your body is concentrated in your thyroid.
A selenium deficiency is very common in people with hypothyroidism. But selenium can significantly reduce the antibodies involved in these autoimmune conditions.
Selenium also supports the thyroid as a whole and helps you convert the non-active form of the thyroid hormone T4 to the active form.
Selenium has also been known to help decrease other symptoms related to thyroid problems, including:
• Bulging eyes
• Thyroid nodules
• Thyroid enlargement
• Excess hydrogen peroxide
Selenium can even help decrease the risk of getting an autoimmune condition and has many other health benefits.
Foods rich in selenium:
• Brazil nuts
• Organ meats
You can consume foods high in selenium or take a selenium supplement (200 mcg) along with other trace minerals.
If you have Grave’s or Hashimoto’s, you may also want to consider taking a product called Thytrophin PMG® by Standard Process.
