The thyroid  gland is located at the front of the neck below the larynx. It consists of two lobules located at the ends of the trachea. The thyroid gland secrete two hormones, the thyroxine (T4) and the trionine triglycerides (T3). T4 is converted into T3 into tissues and cells, Which affects the activity of all cells and tissues of the body

Hypothyroidism is a common disease caused by a lack of production of thyroid hormones . In fact, thyroid hormones play an important role in regulating metabolism within the human body as well as in energy production, so the lack of production of these hormones slows down those processes. that the pituitary gland secret a hormone called thyroid hormone, which is the hormone responsible for regulating the production of thyroid hormones

Hypothyroidism occurs when the body does not produce enough thyroid hormones, the thyroid affects women more than men, and thyroid dysfunction usually affects people over the age of 60, but can be infected by people at any age

It may be detected through a routine blood test or after the onest of symptoms, if diangnosed early, it is important to know that the treatment is simple,safe and effective, and most treatments help easily complete the levels of low hormones,and these synthetic  depression or constipation or feeling cold or dry skin or increased weight or weakness of muscles or lack of sweating and many other symptoms, to a person with a disease is a cause of the sleep of the gland

These foods are really useful in stimulating thyroid activity:



Nuts are a nutrient rich in selenium, which helps regulate thyroid hormones and gives them their active form. a study by researchers in France in 2003

found that women who consumed large amounts of selenium were less likely to have hypothyroidism than who did now. one nucleus of nuts

contains 96 micro grams of selenium, nearly twice the recommended daily amount of 55 micro grams. it is worth mentioning that the maximum

allowable intake of selenium is 400 micro grams a day, may lead to the proliferation of selenium in the body to cause hair loss and heart failure

cashews, almonds and pumpkin seeds are excellent sources of iron, selenium, and other minerals that support the thyroid gland 


Eggs contain iodine and selenium, which increase thyroid activity


Dairy products are rich in iodine, so you do not have to worry about not being able to get

Seaweed salads or expensive fish. according to research conducted by nutrition reviews

in 2012, the main reason why milk is rich in iodine is that cattle are given iodine supplements, which contain iodine cleaners during the milking process. common yogurt, low-fat or yogurt is a good source- it can make up about 50% of your daily intake of iodine.
eat one cup of low-fat milk, giving you about a third of your daily iodine needs
Foods rich in vital ingredients include fermented milk products and goat milk, and these foods help keep the intestines healthy



Chicken and beef zinc is another major dietary ingredient your body needs to stimulate thyroid activity. 85 grams of beef contains 7 milligrams of zinc needed by your body, while 85 grams of chicken meat contains 2.4 milligrams of it

Eat meat rich in amino acids: beef and chicken contain amino acids, which can help repair the lining of the digestive system and improve thyroid insufficiency


Fish since iodine is found in soil and sea water, fish are another good source of these nutrients

Studies indicate that people living in remote mountainous areas that do not reach the sea are at greater risk of developing thyroid hyperplasia than those living in coastal areas. 93.3g of cooked
contains about 99mg of iodine, or 66% of the recommended daily intake

Fish provide omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for the balance of hormones and thyroid functions

Balancing the omega-3 level with omega-6 fatty acids in the thyroid diet can reduce inflammation and support never function

Fish such as salmon and sardines are considered the best sources of omega-3 




Eating raw , cooked or frozen vegetables increases thyroid activity in people

Fresh vegetables, specifically leafy vegetables, contain many antioxidants and dietary fibers, which have the ability to eliminate toxins accumulated in the body damaged by thyroid functions

Spinach and green turnips prevent obesity that causes hypothyroidism


Strawberries are one of the best foods that stimulate thyroid activity
They contain a high percentage of antioxidants


Thyroid needs iodine to work well, you can get enough fish and dairy products, and also make sure to use iodized salt in your home, be careful of sea salt


Coconut oil provides medium-fat acids such as caprylic acid, lauric acid and capric acid
these acids support metabolism, increase energy and fight fatigue, and coconut oil facilitates digestion


Non-toxic seaweeds are considered to be the best natural sources of iodine and help prevent hypothyroidism


Flax seed and hemp, containing omega-3 fats that are essential for proper hormonal balance, maintaining adequate levels of fat in the diet of the thyroid gland supports healthy mood and brain functions and helps to reduce inflammation. eating too much healthy fat also helps stabilizing blood sugar levels can help maintain a healthy weight


Waterhelps to hydrate, support digestive function, prevent fatigue and prevent constipation


People with hypothyroidism may have gastrointestinal difficulties, so they should take 30 to 40 grams of fiber a day

the fiber-rich diet does not only affect the health of the digestive system, it also improves the health of the heart

balances blood sugar levels and adjusts healthy weight by making the person feel full, and some easy ways to increase fiber intake include eating more vegetables, berries, beans, lentils and seeds


Vitamins, minerals and antioxidants in fruits and vegetables are essential to fight hypothyroidism

they are rich in nutrients and must form a large part of a healthy diet because they support the health of the digestive system, brain functions, heart health, hormone balance and maintain a healthy weight


Spinach, lettuce and other leafy vegetables are powerful sources of magnesium and minerals that play a major role in the body's vital processes. Fatigue, muscle spasms and changes in heartbeat may be signs that you do not get enough of those elements


Iodine is abundant in marine foods such as fish, shrimp and seaweed, so it is a stimulant for thyroid activity, but avoiding large amounts of kelp is high in iodine content and may make your condition worse

Unacceptable foods


Some chemicals in soya products such as soy milk can inhibit thyroid hormones, especially if you do not get enough iodine

Organic meat

If you eat organic meat such as kidneys, heart and liver your body gets lots of lipoic acid, which is a fatty acid found in some foods, disrupts thyroid function, and reduces the effectiveness of the drugs it takes to treat hypothyroidism


Gluten is the protein found in wheat and barley. It affects the small intestine of some people suffering from gastrointestinal disorders

It affects thyroid activity of these people either in decrease or increase, both of which can be prevented by a gluten-free diet


Foods high in unsaturated fats

Hyperthyroidism patients should avoid fatty foods that are high in saturated fats and saturated fatty acids, because they reduce the ability of the body to absorb thyroid hormones, and also affect levels of thyroid hormone production
