2. Selenium

Don't skimp on spinach

The No. 2 thing you should consider adding in to overall improve your thyroid function is selenium. The benefits of selenium are critical — actually, selenium has very powerful antioxidant-like functions. In fact, studies have shown that selenium helps balance out T4 in your body hormones, so again, taking a therapeutic dose of selenium every day has also been shown to benefit thyroid function.

There are also foods high in selenium you can consume, including:

  • Brazil nuts
  • Yellowfin tuna
  • Cooked halibut
  • Canned sardines
  • Grass-fed beef
  • Boneless turkey
  • Beef liver
  • Chicken
  • Eggs
  • Spinach
