Q & A EPISODE
Magnesium and Thyroid Health
Magnesium is one of the most critical minerals for optimal health. It plays a role in hundreds of reactions in our bodies, and its deficiency can cause many issues.
When it comes to thyroid health in particular, those with hyperthyroidism and Graves’ disease are more likely to be deficient in magnesium. However, that doesn’t mean that those with hypothyroidism and Hashimoto’s are exempt.
So should everyone with a thyroid condition supplement with magnesium?
Today I’m sharing what research shows about magnesium and thyroid health, the importance of magnesium for those with thyroid and autoimmune thyroid conditions, and key points to consider when it comes to magnesium supplementation.
During this episode, you’ll learn about:
- The many functions of magnesium in the body
- How magnesium relates to thyroid health
- Conditions commonly associated with magnesium deficiency
- Signs of magnesium deficiency
- Food sources of magnesium
- Types of magnesium supplements
- Testing your magnesium status
- What to consider when choosing a magnesium supplement
As always, I hope you’ve found this episode valuable, and I look forward to catching you in the next episode!
