OPTIMISE YOUR THYROID FUNCTION- to boost your metabolism & burn an extra 300-500 calories a day! (science driven) read on..
If you currently have certain vitamin & mineral deficiencies you could be preventing your thyroid from operating at maximum capacity. . WHAT’S YOUR THYROID? Your thyroid is a butterfly shaped gland that’s located at the front of your neck below your Adam's apple. Research has proved that your thyroid hormones have a major impact on your metabolic rate & therefore how much energy you use (calories you expend). . VITAL VITAMINS & MINERALS FOR TOP FUNCTIONING Your thyroid uses iodine to make thyroid hormones. If you are not getting enough iodine in your diet that can lead to low levels of thyroid hormones being produced drastically slowing down your resting metabolism. You can get iodine from table salt, fish, eggs, beef & chicken. Adults need 140 micrograms of iodine a day. . Two other important minerals for thyroid function are zinc & selenium because they have a role in the conversion of the thyroid hormone t4 into its active form t3. Deficiencies of zinc can have a very negative effect on this process & slow your metabolism down. Getting the right levels can boost your resting metabolism by over 300 calories a day. . Zinc deficiency can be quite common especially amongst active people because exercising increases your body's demand for zinc & you also lose zinc through sweat. To make sure your thyroid is functioning properly & running at top speed- men need 11mg & women need 8mg of zinc each day. Zinc can be found in beans, nuts, red meat, eggs & oysters. Selenium can be found in whole grains, milk, yoghurt, chicken, fish, beef & eggs & the recommended daily allowance is 55 micrograms for adult men & women. . HEALTHY BALANCED MEALS If you eat a healthy balanced diet, you will get all the nutrients you need for your thyroid & metabolism to function well. . Overwhelmed with the whole food thing?
