A THOROUGH THYROID TALK
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, meaning that the thyroid is working too fast. These people may experience a rapid heart rate, diarrhea and weight loss, anxiety, moodiness, nervousness, sweating, trembling, hair loss, and irregularity with the female hormonal system.
Other people have hypothyroidism, meaning that the thyroid is sluggish. 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 irregularity with the female hormonal system.
Therefore, ensuring that the thyroid is working optimally is, in essence, supporting the health of not just one body system, but many.
Conventional medicine attempts to replace, stimulate, or restrict the function of the thyroid. Thyraid’s formulation provides the building blocks and support for normal thyroid function. The ingredients in Thyraid support and maintain healthy thyroid function.
The Advanced Nutrition by Zahler formulation Thyraid is unique. It is designed to support thyroid health and can be supportive 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, MANGANESE AND ZINC
Are all important for thyroid health and are critical for the function of several enzymes in the gland.
Included are 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.
