Broccoli is a goitrogen. Goitrogens interfere with the thyroid's ability to use iodine. They can cause swelling/inflammation of the thyroid. The goitrogens are actually very good for you, other than their effect on thyroid health. Cooking them removes the goitrogenic properties, so they have no adverse effects.
Soy is a goitrogenic that I do not recommend eating at all.
I'm not sure that eating broccoli will have that much effect on your hyperthyroidism. Maybe you'd be better off to get an anti-thyroid medication from your doctor.
Please post your current thyroid levels so members can better assess your situation and possibly make suggestions. Be sure to include reference ranges, since those vary lab to lab and must come from your own report.
The food you get L carnitine from is meat and dairy foods. The amount you'll get is very unpredictablebecause your liver has to make it out of 2 different amino acids. Many people do not have enough, therefore it is a very widely used nutritional supplement. To have the effect described in the article, you would need to buy a supplement from a vitamin store.
