I wanted to create a short video about Brazil nuts and selenium. Are Brazil nuts a good source of selenium?


Benefits of selenium:


 • Selenium is great for people with Hashimoto’s 


 • Selenium acts as an antioxidant 


 • Selenium helps you convert thyroid hormone T4 to the active form T3


Are Brazil nuts good? Well, the problem with Brazil nuts is that they have high amounts of phytic acid. 


Phytic acid binds minerals and blocks:


 • Selenium 


 • Zinc


 • Iron


 • Magnesium 


 • Calcium 


 • Chromium 


 • Manganese


 • Copper




How to consume Brazil nuts:


 • If you want to consume Brazil nuts, you have to soak them in water overnight before eating them. This will help get rid of the phytic acid.


 • You could also consume roasted Brazil nuts. But, the problem with roasting the nuts is that heat destroys some heat-sensitive vitamins and beneficial oils.
