Experts Weigh In on Lobia's Role in Thyroid Management and Weight Loss

The news discusses the claim that lobia or black-eyed beans can aid in thyroid management and weight loss. A post by a nutritionist suggests that lobia is a low-calorie food rich in nutrients and fiber, which can help with weight loss by removing toxins, fat, and cellulite from the body. It also mentions that lobia can control thyroid levels.

Dr. Santosh Pandey, a naturopath, and acupuncturist, states that black-eyed beans are high in nutrition and can aid in thyroid management. He explains that a healthy diet and lifestyle are important for improving thyroid function, and including beans like lobia can help due to their zinc content, which supports hormone balance.

However, Dr. Shuchin Bajaj, founder-director of Ujala Cygnus Group of Hospitals, argues that no scientific evidence supports the claim that lobia can control thyroid function directly. He emphasizes that hormones and nutrients like iodine, selenium, and zinc primarily regulate the thyroid gland. While a balanced diet, including lobia can contribute to overall thyroid health, it alone cannot cure or control thyroid disorders.

Dr. Bajaj advises maintaining a well-rounded diet with various nutrient-rich foods, including legumes, for overall health, including thyroid health. If there are concerns about thyroid function, it is recommended to consult a medical professional for appropriate guidance and treatment.
