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.
￼Up to 10 percent of the population may benefit from thyroid support—and many of them may not even know it. If you need support for energy levels, immune health, or metabolism, Thyroid CareTM is the right choice to:
A healthy thyroid gland is crucial for proper metabolism and immune system function. Thyroid Care provides iodine and L-Tyrosine, which are required by the thyroid to make key hormones.
Q. Why should I care about iodine?
A. Iodine is one of the most important minerals for healthy cellular and metabolic function. In fact, iodine is so important that it was put into table salt to help prevent goiters and iodine insufficiency. However, Americans are eating less refined table salt, and levels of iodine in other foods are diminishing with changes in soil and agricultural practices. There is less iodine in the American diet than there was just 50 years ago. It has been estimated that the entire American population may have suboptimal levels of iodine.* Additionally, certain toxic minerals "compete" with iodine. As we are exposed to greater levels of chlorine, bromine (bromide) and fluoride, the body requires more iodine for ongoing detoxification.
Q. What exactly is "tyrosine" or "L-Tyrosine"?
A. Tyrosine is an amino acid.Tyrosine (also called "L-Tyrosine") is the precursor for the formation of the thyroid hormones thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3), as well as epinephrine, norepinephrine and dopamine. In addition to thyroid hormone support, supplemental tyrosine has been found to be beneficial for mood, stress relief, mental function, and memory.
