About Thyroid Supplements

The recipe for weight loss: less calories in, more calories out. The simplicity of this formula can be imperfect when facing metabolic challenges, like an underactive thyroid. The human body can experience difficulty with the calorie expenditure portion of this simplistic (though usually effective) equation, despite our best efforts at burning extra calories through exercise.



This is where hypothyroidism can play a role in some individuals. To complicate matters even more, sometimes the thyroid can be synthesizing enough of its thyroid hormone thyroxine (T4), though not enough is converted in peripheral tissues to triiodothyronine (T3). T3 is a powerful thyroid hormone, even stronger than thyroxine. These hormones are responsible for maintaining a healthy metabolism, and low levels are associated with weight gain.



Some of the best natural thyroid hormone supportive nutrients are in fact very basic ones, like tyrosine, iodine (rich in kelp), selenium and zinc. Selenium is found in high concentrations in brazil nuts (sourced from the Amazonian Basin). It is important for the activity of the deiodinase enzymes and the conversion of T4 to T3. Therefore, selenium acually plays a crucial role in metabolic regulation. Iodine is a structural component of the thyroid hormones, with 3 atoms are found in T3, and 4 atoms in T4. High levels of tyrosine residues are found within the protein chain of these hormones as well.

* Low mood

* Lethargy
