I read about this cranberry thyroid boosting juice that helps treat inflammation or hormone imbalance when you drink it once a week. I love cranberry and I know it works with urinary track infection, so I am going to try this. One thing is for sure… It’s healthy.
A butterfly-shaped organ located at the base of the neck, the thyroid gland is responsible for producing and releasing hormones which regulate metabolism as well as other body functions, including body weight, body temperature, skin integrity, heart rate, cholesterol level, breathing, muscle strength, menstrual cycle, and central and peripheral nervous system.
How the Thyroid Gland Works
The thyroid is part of the endocrine system, a collection of glands that produce, store and release hormones that regulate metabolism, growth and development, tissue function, sexual function, reproduction, sleep, and mood. The hypothalamus is responsible for the production of TSH, a hormone which signals the pituitary to tell the thyroid to produce less or more of T3 and T4. This means that it promotes balance between T3 and T4.
So, if T3 and T4 levels are low in the blood, the pituitary gland will produce more THS so it can stimulate the production of more thyroid hormones. In other case, if these levels are high, the pituitary gland will release less THS to the thyroid, thus slowing down the production of thyroid hormones
Hypothyroidism is known as the most common thyroid condition, which occurs from too little T3 and T4 in the body.
CRANBERRY THYROID-BOOSTING JUICE
Vitamin C found in lemon and orange juice is rich with antioxidants which have the ability to promote optimal thyroid health.
Ginger is packed with magnesium, a mineral that can effectively regulate thyroid disease.
Cinnamon possesses potent anti-inflammatory properties which can reduce the risk of hypothyroidism.
7 cups spring or filtered water
1 cup 100% cranberry juice
1/4 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
3/4 tbsp freshly squeezed orange juice
1/4 tbsp dry ginger
1/2 tbsp Ceylon cinnamon
1/4 tbsp nutmeg
You should heat the water so it will reach its boiling point. Add the spices and the cranberry juice and let it simmer for 20 minutes. Remove from the stove and let it cool. Then, add the lemon and the orange juice. Drink this throughout the day!
Have a lovely Day and thank you so much for reading!!!
