Tips for Hypothyroidism
Tips for

Hypothyroidism contributes to substantial oxidative stress in the body, which may accelerate aging, suppress the immune system, and affect heart health. Therefore, it’s important to fill your plate with antioxidant-rich foods, especially those with vitamin C. Vitamin C has also shown to optimize the absorption of thyroid hormone replacement.

Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that provides an abundance of health benefits. Its antioxidant capacity may contribute to anti-aging and immune system-boosting properties. Fruits and vegetables like kiwi, berries, green and red peppers, cauliflower, cabbage, peas, papaya, mango, pineapple, cherries, cantaloupe, tomatoes, and citrus fruits are high in vitamin C. 

But as with most things, too much of a good thing isn’t good: High doses of vitamin C exceeding 2,000 mg can cause stomach upset and diarrhea. It’s best to stick with the daily recommendation of vitamin C, or about 75 mg a day for adult women.
