Thyro Support is designed to support an underactive thyroid, sometimes referred to as subclinical hypothyroidism. Hypothyroidism is a medical condition in which there is insufficient thyroid hormone production. Subclinical hypothyroidism, while less severe, still has detrimental effects which can include fatigue, weight gain, cardiovascular problems, oversensitivity to cold, dry skin, brittle nails, constipation, overall weakness and depression. The ingredients in Thyro Support provide the raw materials for the production of thyroid hormones, and also help to increase the conversion of the hormone T4 into its more effective form, T3.
These ingredients include the amino acid tyrosine, herbs Coleus forskohlii and Bacopa monnieri, and the essential minerals iodine, zinc, copper, and selenium.
Those who have an underactive thyroid, have been diagnosed with subclinical hypothyroidism, or those suffering from the symptoms of an underactive thyroid, including fatigue and weight gain, can benefit from Thyro Support. Since the thyroid is closely linked to the adrenal glands, those looking for adrenal support or who are under chronic stress can also benefit from supporting the thyroid.
The Ayurvedic herb Coleus forskohlii, and its active constituent Forskolin, has demonstrated its ability to raise the production and release of thyroid hormones in animal and in-vitro studies. Several benefits that have been noted from taking forskolin. One particular study examined the effect of forskolin on male body composition, testosterone, metabolic rate, and blood pressure in overweight and obese men. Forskolin was able to produce favorable changes in the body composition of those taking it over a twelve week period at a dosage of 250 mg’s of extract taken twice per day. It was able to lower fat mass and increase lean body mass as compared to the placebo group. It also caused an increase in free testosterone levels.
Studies have revealed that Coleus forskohlii stimulates adenylate cyclase, which in turn produces cyclic adenosine mono phosphate (cAMP), an important regulator of cellular function, energy expediture and a hormonal response modifier. Studies have shown that cells from hypothyroid rats produce less cAMP. cAMP is an important redox agent with attributes similar to ATP, CoQ10 and NADH which are important for energy production.
Studies in male mice showed that Bacopa possesses powerful thyroid stimulating effects, increasing T4 concentration by 41% after supplementation for 15 days.
Numerous studies have made it clear that normal thyroid status is dependent on the presence of many trace elements for both the synthesis and metabolism of thyroid hormones. Iodine is most important as a component of the hormones, thyroxine and 3,3′,5-tri-iodothyronine (T3) and iodine deficiency may affect approximately one billion people throughout the world.
Selenium is essential for normal thyroid hormone metabolism being involved with selenium-containing iodothyronine de-iodinases that control the synthesis and degradation of the biologically active thyroid hormone, T3.
Other important thyroid nutrients and enzymes
The roles of iron, zinc and copper in the thyroid are less well defined but sub- or supraoptimal dietary intakes of all these elements can adversely affect thyroid hormone metabolism. Additionally, selenoperoxidases and thioredoxin reductase protect the thyroid gland from peroxides produced during the synthesis of hormones.
Directions (Adults): Take 1 capsule three times daily with food, or as directed by a qualified health care practitioner. Take a few hours before or after taking other medications.
Suggested Usage: Thyro Support™ contains iodine to help in the function of the thyroid gland as well as other minerals and botanical extracts for the maintenance of good health.
