More than 30,000,000 people in the US and 200 million worldwide have a Thyroid Disorder Most affected are women. Some estimates are over 50 million in US and over 200 million worldwide, and growing.

Estimates vary widely as most patients are misdiagnosed or undiagnosed because doctors don't know what they are looking for.

Thyroid disease is also an autoimmune disease. This means that over 27 million people have one or more of the over 105 known autoimmune diseases.

Thyroid Health – Flax Milk

Thyroid health is best served by staying away from dairy products, like cow’s milk, that if not organic, is laced with pesticides, hormones, estrogen, GMOs (from the cow eating GMO grains and crops), etc.

I usually drink almond milk, but just tried Flax Milk and love it!

Use it “just like milk” in your cereal, oatmeal, buckwheat hot breakfast, on berries and in your smoothies too.

Ingredients/unsweetened:

All Natural Flaxmilk (Filtered Water, Cold Pressed Flax Oil, Tapioca Starch, Tricalcium Phosphate, Canola Lecithin, Natural Flavors, Sea Salt, Guar Gum, Xanthan Gum, Carrageenan, Vitamin A Palmitate, Vitamin D2, Vitamin B12.

Also, it had 1200 mg of OMEGA-3! That’s really great!

Go try some soon. Tastes great too.

    I just read that Tapioca is not good to take with Hashimoto and noticed that Flax milk has Tapioca starch. That if you are going gluten free, it cross reacts with GF products. I noticed that the Gluten free flour I just bought has Tapioca in it, I’m so confused about all the contradicting info about what to eat.
    Can anyone help me?

    I found this info on this site:

    So as I read this I found it to be interesting. By the way Almond milk is bad for people with hypothyroidism not sure for those that have hyperthyroidism. I currently use organic coconut milk and organic hormone and gmo free milk. I have read at the Mayo Clinic that flax is bad for hypothyroidism. Again not sure about hyperthyroidism.

      Hi Lynn,

      Almonds are a goitrogenic food, meaning they contain chemicals that can harm your thyroid. Goitrogenic foods such as soy, cabbage, kale, flax, broccoli, and almonds, cause the thyroid to expand, and when consumed on a large level, cause goiters to form because one of the prevalent chemicals found in goitrogens blocks the intake of iodine. While goitrogenic foods can be harmful in large consumption, they are at the same time healthy and beneficial to the human immune system.

      Overall, almonds are not known to be a significant goitrogen.

      This might calculate out to keeping intake of almond milk to no more than 8-12oz/day, or skip a day between drinking more.

      Something to know however, that drinking a lot of soy milk can interfere with thyroid function, possibly leading to goiter, due to it’s high goitrogenic levels.

      Re: Flax Seed
      Flax seed is a rich source of essential fatty acids, especially in the form of omega-3 fatty acids. The University of Maryland Medical Center recommends that people with thyroiditis consume between 1,000 mg and 1,500 mg of fatty acids per day. These fatty acids help to promote healthy hormone production and act as anti-inflammatory agents, although more research is necessary regarding the possible risks and benefits of consuming flax seed.

    Is hemp milk good for people with thyroid nodules and gallbladder pain? I also have wondering if Good Karma Flax Milk would be alright for same conditions? Thank you for your help.
