Why is this important for thyroid health?
Well, if you don’t have a sensitivity to eggs, this recipe is high in protein with the use of salmon, eggs, and pine nuts, which is beneficial for your metabolism.
Research shows that diets higher in protein can increase your metabolism and that diets with restricted-protein adversely affects thyroid function [1,2].
Additionally, this recipe has great omega-3 benefits with the inclusion of salmon.
Fatty acids, such as omega-3s are necessary for all cell functioning, including the cells of the thyroid gland. Not only that, they help to reduce inflammation in the body.
With less inflammation (through supplementation or with an anti-inflammatory diet) there is less of an autoimmune attack on the thyroid and less release of thyroid antibodies [3,4].
Let’s discuss those pine nuts! Pine nuts are rich sources of iron, magnesium, and zinc — all important nutrients that assist with thyroid hormone production and conversion.
Don’t forget to to add in your leafy greens or kale. Leafy greens contain amino acids like tyrosine, B-complex vitamins, minerals like selenium, and antioxidants — all of which support your thyroid hormone production .
And with selenium, it’s an important nutrient that has been shown in studies to reduce thyroid antibodies when supplementing daily for 3 months .
