One of the most overlooked vegetables is the turnip, but the unique chemical composition and nutrient profile of turnips actually makes it very important, particularly for those suffering from Graves’ Disease or hyperthyroidism. As a goitrogen, turnips can help the body inhibit the release of excess thyroid hormone, thus helping to relieve the strain on the endocrine system.
