Are broccoli and cauliflower bad for the thyroid? According to experts, here's what you should know before consuming them

Are broccoli and cauliflower bad for the thyroid? According to experts,

There is a lot of information that says people with thyroid problems should stop eating cruciferous vegetables.

Cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cabbage or cauliflower may be your favorite vegetables that you don't want to give up.

Are Cruciferous Vegetables Good For You?

According to health experts, cruciferous vegetables represent some of the healthiest foods for you. This class of vegetables protects you against various types of cancer, such as breast, lung, colon and prostate cancer.

This is all thanks to glucosinolates, a sulfur compound found only in cruciferous vegetables. They are undoubtedly an excellent source of fiber, minerals, such as folate and vitamins C, E, K.

They also contain powerful phytochemicals that can help calm inflammation and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.

But where is the problem with these vegetables?

Cruciferous vegetables contain goitrogens, substances that affect the thyroid gland, preventing the uptake of the essential mineral iodine.

This is especially problematic for people who already have an underactive thyroid and don't want to slow it down further.

However, nowadays it is easier to have an excess of iodine, which can be just as harmful.

Excess iodine can increase the risk of autoimmune diseases. In this case, inhibiting iodine intake may be beneficial for those with thyroid problems.

On the other hand, these vegetables can help the body produce more antioxidants. 

Which can improve thyroid health and fight autoimmune diseases.

In other words, cruciferous vegetables can in many cases be beneficial!

Are cruciferous vegetables safe to eat?

Despite the presence of goitrogens, the benefits of eating cruciferous vegetables outweigh the negatives even if you have thyroid problems.

This is because you will need to consume very large amounts of these vegetables in order for them to affect the thyroid.

So, if you don't consume a large amount of them every day, you will be in good health.

But if you suffer from hypothyroidism or are struggling with any autoimmune disease, you should consult a qualified doctor.

That's how you'll find the best food, medicine and lifestyle to suit your needs.
