Know Your Nutrients: Thyroid Supporters
by Amanda Hawkinson
Hypothyroidism is a thyroid problem that occurs when the thyroid gland does not create and secrete enough hormones to maintain the normal metabolic rate of the body. The root cause of most symptoms of thyroid problems is improper metabolism in the body. Symptoms can arise in any part of the body because thyroid hormones are used by almost every cell and organ in the body. Supplementation is a helpful way to get in control of your thyroid. Some thyroid supporters the Riordan Clinic recommends are:
A tablet that contains iodine and iodide, Iodoral is absorbed into the bloodstream and works quickly to promote healthy thyroid function, support a balanced mood, assist in regulation of healthy blood pressure, and support healthy breasts, ovaries, uterus and prostate. It is also know to boost immune function, help normalize metabolism, increase energy and lessen fatigue, and optimize iodine levels if you have a deficiency.
Catemine combines the amino acids l-Tyrosine and the active form of vitamin B6 to replenish norepinephrine, which can be depleted by stress, overwork and certain drugs, in the brain. In essence, it is designed to naturally enhance one’s mood, along with a balanced diet. It is also the precursor to two thyroid hormones.
Selenium is a trace mineral and it is essential to good health; however, it is required only in small amounts. Selenium is integrated into proteins to make selenoproteins. These important antioxidant enzymes help prevent cellular damage from free radicals, the natural by-products of oxygen metabolism that contribute to the development of chronic illness. Selenoproteins also help regulate thyroid function and play a role in the immune system.
