In this video, I want to cover goitrogens and thyroid function. We’re going to talk about what goitrogenic foods are and if you should be concerned about them.

What are goitrogenic foods? – It is a food that can cause a goiter (an enlarged thyroid). 

The thyroid is in the base of the neck, and it can swell up if it doesn’t have iodine. If someone consumes food that blocks iodine, it can ultimately:

1. Cause more thyroid hormone to be released
2. Cause the thyroid to get bigger 

Goitrogenic food list:

• Casava 
• Corn 
• Cabbage
• Canola 
• Soybeans 
• Cruciferous Vegetables 
• Almonds
• Cherries 
• Strawberries
• Spinach 
• Sweet Potatoes 

Out of these goitrogenic foods, I don’t recommend consuming:

• Casava
• Corn
• Canola
• Soybeans
• Cherries
• Sweet Potatoes

Out of the foods that are fine to consume, cruciferous vegetables could potentially create thyroid problems if:

• You are sensitive to these foods
• You consume large amounts of cruciferous vegetables too frequently
• You have a hypothyroid problem
• You have an iodine deficiency 

If you’re concerned about goitrogenic foods or if you have one of the problems above, you need to:

• Take sea kelp 
• Don’t consume these foods on a daily basis 

Some of the best sources of iodine to protect you from a deficiency that could damage your thyroid health are:

• Shellfish
• Fish 
• Sea kelp (not large amounts)
