or

Bulk Nuts sold in 8 oz and 1 lb quantities

A hard-shelled nut, that grow's inside a round fruit that looks similar to a coconut. Brazil nuts are a source of non-animal based protein and are rich in selenium. You can eat them raw or roasted.

Selenium is one of nature’s best kept secrets. Only a small amount of this mineral is needed, but it has huge effects on our health. Selenium is vital to the normal functioning of our thyroid. Since women are more prone to thyroid problems, selenium is especially important to women

Brazil nuts are known for their selenium content, with a 1-ounce serving, or approximately six nuts, containing 544 micrograms of selenium. A trace element, selenium is essential for producing selenoproteins, which are enzymes that support your immune system, as well as regulate your thyroid gland function.

If your level of selenium is low, the thyroid has to work harder to make it’s hormones, and your body will also have a more difficult job changing those hormones into a form your cells can use. This happens because selenium is a chief component of the molecules which are necessary for your body to be able to create and use thyroid hormones, called seleno-proteins.

The problems which selenium deficiency can cause are made more serious when another key nutrient, iodine, is low as well. A selenium deficiency coupled with an iodine deficiency is likely to lead to thyroid imbalance.
