Phytoestrogens found in soy prevent the thyroid from using iodine (4).

This in turn means that important thyroid hormones aren’t secreted, which can lead to hypothyroidism.

If you’re concerned about your thyroid health make an effort to avoid unfermented soy products, since they contain anti-nutrients that can cause digestive stress and malnutrition.
