Pro Thyroid Action Of Goitrogens



This is a theoretical question, maybe silly.

Could goitrogens be used to enhance thyroid function?

Goitrogens interfere with the metabolism of iodone. The consequence is that the thyroid grows to be able to use iodine better.

Now, what happens once we remove the goitrogens? Would we have a better thyroid state than before we started eating goitrogens, due to the enhanced ability to use iodine by the thyroid gland?

That's an interesting idea j. By "thyroid grows" I guess you mean the thyroid physically grows larger to be able to use iodine better?

OTOH, an enlarged liver isn't a good sign, and we really want to minimize the pituitary hormones including TSH.
