Brazil nuts provide a rich source of selenium, and happen to be even more bio-available than most supplements in the market. Selenium is an important nutrient to support thyroid health. Most Naturopaths and Nutritionists will recommend 1-2 brazil nuts per day as a natural source of selenium, enhancing any healing protocol for someone who has a hypo-thyroid, hormone imbalance, or simply wants to ensure they are meeting their nutritional needs.
