The thyroid is a small bowtie or butterfly-shaped gland located in your neck around the windpipe, behind and below your Adam’s apple area, whose work is to keep your body running smoothly. They are in charge of delivering messages between themselves and other body parts so that all of those tiny cells are regulated and functioning at the proper levels. The thyroid gland produces essential hormones that have many effects on metabolism, growth and development, its health is extremely important to your overall health.
If your thyroid isn’t functioning properly it can lead to developmental defects or weight gain or loss. The food we eat is our medicine, so consuming the proper foods will help support your thyroid to ensure it remains in tip top shape.
Drink the following juice once a day to cleanse and improve of your thyroid, all you need is:
– 1 cucumber
– 5 stalks celery
– 5 carrots
– 1 cup young Thai coconut water
– 1 lemon
Carrots are packed with beta-carotene which is the precursor for vitamin A in the body. A deficiency of vitamin A can limit your ability to produce thyroid stimulating hormone.
