2. Eating Seamoss Helps to Promote a Healthy Thyroid

In multiple articles here we have touched upon the topic of a healthy functioning thyroid.

Your thyroid gland has what is best described as a butterfly-shape to it. It is found at the base of the throat. This gland has a very important part to play when it comes to the management of hormones.

The two main hormones the thyroid is responsible for managing are Thyroxine and Triiodothyronine. These are constructed with 3 or 4 iodine atoms per molecule. The iodine from seaweed is critical in helping to support effective thyroid function.

It is in the mixing of iodine which had been absorbed by the thyroid with tyrosine (amino acid) that makes Thyroxine and Triiodothyronine. The thyroids is responsible for supporting and maintaining healthy and effective function in the:

Digestive system
Cholesterol levels
Brain, mood and hormone balance
Muscle control
Reproductive organs
Nervous system
Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR), also known as Metabolism
A healthy functioning thyroid is also necessary for the development of unborn children, and is liked to weight management. When your thyroid is not supported there is the risk of hypothyroidism (an under-active thyroid) or hyperthyroidism (an overactive thyroid).

Thyroid disorders that are left untreated can develop into more complicated issues including autoimmune diseases. If you hadn’t guessed, in most cases where people suffer from thyroid problems these are typically to an iodine deficiency.

It is in the iodine content found in seamoss that there is a solution. Iodine can be considered a food source for your thyroid. Making seaweed a part of your daily diet will do much to support having a healthy and functioning thyroid. This is key to improving your overall health.

Like all other medical related information we discuss here, it is important that you seek advice from your Dietitian before making any diet changes. If you believe that your thyroid function may not be healthy, seek advice from your Dietitian for your specific circumstances.

When you first start using seamoss you may feel like you could poop yourself when you go to bed. This is not going to happen if you’ve had a bowel movement before bed. This sensation passes after a couple of nights.
