Evidence
(How it Works)

How it Works:

Thyroid Care™ is formulated to provide targeted support for the thyroid gland. A healthy thyroid gland is important for proper metabolism and immune system function. This formula provides iodine and l-tyrosine, which are required by the thyroid in order to synthesize thyroid hormones.

Iodine
Iodine intake is required for the synthesis of thyroid hormones.* Low iodine intake, or iodine deficiency, is associated with hypothyroidism. The median US urinary iodine excretion fell from 320 mcg/d to 145 mcg/d between the early 1970s and the early 1990s and some subsets of the population may be at increased risk for moderate iodine deficiency. This reduction may be related to changes in dietary choices and increased avoidance of salt (the primary dietary source of iodine). 1-3 Thyroid Care contains three types of iodine, which helps provide support beyond thyroid concerns as well:

Molecular iodine
A review paper examining results obtained in studies of breast health noted that while all forms tested (molecular iodine, sodium iodide and potassium iodide) produced beneficial effects, the best results for breast support were achieved with iodine.*4

Sodium and Potassium iodide
Potassium and sodium iodide are the forms of iodine utilized by the thyroid. Iodine is an essential component of thyroid hormones. Supplemental iodide is important for optimal thyroid function.*5-7

L-tyrosine
L-tyrosine is the precursor for the formation of the thyroid hormones thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3), as well as epinephrine, norepinephrine and dopamine.*8

Additional Health Information



Thyroid Care™

Supports Thyroid, Immune and Complete Metabolic Function*
Iodine with L-Tyrosine

Dietary Supplement

Recommendations: 2 capsules daily, may increase up to 4 capsules daily.

Thyroid Care™ provides superior nutritional support for healthy thyroid and immune function. Optimal levels of iodine benefit the thyroid gland and enhance metabolism.

This formula now provides three forms of iodine for even greater overall support beyond the thryoid, although that is still it's primary target. For example, research shows that molecular iodine supports breast health, while sodium iodide and potassium iodide are the best form of support for thyroid health and the creation of thyroid hormones.*

L-Tyrosine is an important amino acid which is absolutely necessary for the body to produce thyroid (as well as noradrenaline and dopamine) hormones. It is impossible to have a well functioning thyroid without sufficient quantities of tyrosine combined with iodine either in the diet or through supplementation.*
