Brazil nuts are very high in selenium which is a crucial mineral that plays a vital role in supporting healthy adrenal and thyroid function, aiding in the production of adrenal hormones, and protecting against oxidative stress. Just two Brazil nuts a day meet the daily RDA for selenium.

Garlic and onions not only add wonderful flavor, but they are also alliums, which support adrenal health by reducing inflammation, boosting immune function, and enhancing overall well-being. They are also high in different forms of sulfur, which aid in cardiovascular health, bone health, blood sugar control, and detoxification.

Mushrooms support the stress response, modulate immune function, and promote overall adrenal well-being. This soup contains shiitake mushroom powder, which contains beta-glucans. supports the immune system, cardiovascular system, liver function, and blood sugar regulation, and contains eritadenine, which has been shown to lower cholesterol and is exclusively in shiitakes. Different mushrooms contain different nutrients, so add a variety, if time allows.

Sea vegetables like Irish Moss and arame are very high in minerals such as iodine, magnesium, and potassium which are very important for adrenal health. Iodine is crucial for healthy thyroid function, and proper thyroid function is closely linked to adrenal health as the adrenal glands and thyroid glands work closely together in regulating metabolism and energy production.

Sea vegetables also contain antioxidants like vitamins C and E, beta carotene, and other phytonutrients. Irish moss helps to give this soup a creamy texture while providing more iodine, fiber, beneficial bacteria, and nutrients to support the immune system.

Arame is high in vitamin K, vitamin B9, calcium, magnesium, and iodine. It is nutrient-dense and has been shown to help with blood sugar regulation which is very important in balancing the adrenals. Imbalances in blood sugar can impact the body's stress response and adrenal function.

Try this quick and easy, Adrenal Loving Mushroom Soup, which is wonderful for nourishing the adrenals and the thyroid.
