The thyroid gland, located in the neck (below the Adam’s apple) produces hormones that regulate cell metabolism: thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). Thyroxine is converted into the more active hormone, T3. Thyroid hormones regulate metabolism within every cell of the body. Optimal balance of thyroid hormone production is required to help numerous body functions including: the body’s metabolic rate, growth and development, reproduction, hormone production, brain function, as well as psychological and cardiovascular health.
Thyroid Support is a unique formulation which provides a blend of nutrients and botanicals that work synergistically to support thyroid health. Thyroid Support includes iodine, an essential trace element recognized for its traditional role in thyroid hormone synthesis, sourced from potassium iodide and kelp. Both iodine and the amino acid L-tyrosine are essential components of T4 and T3 thyroid hormones. Ashwagandha and bladderwrack leaf, long used by herbalists for thyroid balance, are also added to the formula for optimal thyroid support and improving the stress response.
