Onions for Boosting Thyroid Function

By Elaine Moore on 8/10/2012

In his regular health column in the September 2012 issue of The Oprah Magazine, Dr. Mehmet Oz reports that kaempferol, a naturally occurring phytochemical found in onions, can kick-start production of thyroid hormone. From time to time, I hear of Graves' patients reporting on a recurrence of hyperthyroid symptoms after eating onions or garlic. This could explain why.


Mehmet Oz, "Your Chemistry 101," The Oprah Magazine, Sept 2012: 78-80.
