Best Natural Thyroid Supplements
Glands produce substances necessary for bodily functions. The thyroid produces hormones which play a key role in metabolic processes, as well as heart function, muscle control, brain development and mood and bone maintenance. That’s a lot for a relatively small gland. The thyroid is part of the endocrine system. It uses iodine, ideally obtained from foods, to produce two main hormones, triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4). Both of these hormones must remain at ideal levels for the body to function well. Different health issues may develop when thyroid hormone levels are too high or too low.
THE HIGHS AND LOWS
As with all bodily functions, the production and usage of thyroid hormones is a carefully calibrated system. Some people suffer from hyperthyroidism, or thyroid hormone levels that are too high. These people may experience a rapid heart rate, diarrhea and weight loss, anxiety, moodiness, nervousness, sweating, trembling, hair loss, and slowing of the female hormonal systems.
Other people have hypothyroidism, or low thyroid hormone levels. This is much more common. These people may notice a slowed heart rate, constipation and weight gain, fatigue, insomnia, difficulty concentrating, dry hair and skin, depression, joint and muscle pain, and accelerated female hormonal systems.
There is no single test that can accurately diagnose all thyroid issues. However, determining the cause of reduced or accelerated thyroid function is important as targeted treatment is significantly more effective.
The Advanced Nutrition by Zahler formulation Thyraide is unique. It is designed to support thyroid health and can be helpful for high and low thyroid function. It is a nutritional supplement including important nutrients and herbal ingredients that help align the endocrine system.
IODINE AND L-TYROSINE Together these are the principle components of thyroid hormones. Without an adequate supply of both, the health of the gland and the production of hormones are negatively impacted.
COPPER, MAGNESIUM AND ZINC
Are all important for thyroid health and are critical for the function of several enzymes in the gland.
TRADITIONAL HERBS Three traditional herbs from Ayurvedic traditions which are delivered as advanced, concentrated and standardized extracts. Forskohlii root, Sensoril from the ashwagandha root, and guggul extract (Myrrh resin) all support thyroid health in unique and important ways, optimizing and supporting normal function of this all-important gland.
Conventional medicine attempts to replace, stimulate, or restrict the function of the thyroid. Thyraide’s formulation provides the building blocks and support for normal function. The ingredients in Thyraide are those that are naturally found in hormones produced by this gland, as well as those that assist in that production process.
