Why is Thyroid function so important for a healthy metabolism?

The Thyroid is responsible for secreting certain hormones that control the metabolism and if it’s not functioning properly it can cause all sorts of symptoms.
Have you been feeling tired for no apparent reason, noticed weight changes, dry, brittle and thinning hair, skin conditions such as eczema, itchy skin, depression, muscle and joint pain or menstrual irregularities? If so, your Thyroid could be the reason.

There are many vitamins and minerals necessary for healthy Thyroid function such as Zinc, Vitamin B12, Vitamin E and Vitamin D but the two minerals I’d like to talk more about are Iodine and Selenium as they are the two most important ones. Iodine is required to make Thyroid hormone and the Selenium is necessary to activate the Thyroid hormone.

Check out the list of foods below to help naturally increase Selenium and Iodine in your daily diet.

Selenium:

  • Beef, Lamb, Chicken and Turkey
  • Brazil Nuts
  • Seafood – Oysters, Mussels, Shrimp
  • Mushrooms – Portobella, Shiitake
  • Grains – Rice, Barley, Oats and Quinoa
  • Seeds – Flaxseeds, Chia Seeds and Sunflower Seeds
  • Raworganix Protein – contains Rice, Quinoa and Flaxseeds plus that extra protein hit for weight loss and blood sugar balance.

Iodine:

  • Sushi – with seaweed
  • Fish – Cod, Tuna
  • Himalayan Crystal Salt
  • Prunes
  • Eggs

  • The “Metabolism Booster Pack” could also be a great six week programme for you

Raworganix-Pecan-Chocolate-Balls

Welcome to our very first Raworganix blog.

The Pecan and Chocolate Protein Balls are one of many recipes I have created using our Raworganix Plant Based Protein Powder and of those, three are so far entered onto our site.  You’ll find them under our “Recipes” page – Clean Green Smoothie, Green Tea and Raspberry Smoothie and now our Pecan and Chocolate Protein Balls. I am in the process of putting the finishing touches to the others, so keep an eye out for them coming through soon.

All of these recipes have been made with simplicity in mind and with ingredients that should not be difficult to find, be it in your local supermarket or wholefood or organic store. Ideally we’d all like to eat organic food but in reality it’s not always that simple, however growing your own can go a long way. If you can’t buy organic, try and find fresh fruit and vegetables and buy seasonal produce when you can as you’ll find them to be of far better quality.#organic, #raworganix, #realprotein, #healthyfood, #glutenfree, #vegan
