An excellent choice for those wishing to support their thyroid function naturally, it is also suitable for vegans and vegetarians. Formulated by naturopath Martin Budd ND, Thyro Complex provides a synergistic blend of nutrients and herbs that support the thyroid gland, providing the substrates and co-factor nutrients required by the body for optimal thyroid hormone production. The formula includes the amino acid L-tyrosine, an amino acid used as a building block to make thyroid hormones; iodine, a vital mineral which forms part of the hormones T3 and T4; and selenium, an important co-factor in the conversion of T4 to T3. The formula also contains a wide range of other nutrients and botanicals, such as phenylalanine, l-carnitine, liquorice, B vitamins, magnesium and vitamin C which are also helpful for supporting thyroid function. Thyro Complex can therefore be considered to provide broad nutritional support for this vital gland.

 

What is the Thyroid gland and what does it do?

The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland in the neck whose job it is to produce hormones that regulate many of the body's essential functions, including metabolism (the conversion of calories from food into energy) . In simple terms, the body takes iodine from certain foods in order to convert it into the thyroid hormones thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). The thyroid cells are the only cells in the body that can absorb iodine. In these cells, iodine is combined with the amino acid l-tryosine to make T4 (thyroxine). T4 is then converted, with the help of numerous co-factor nutrients (such as selenium and magnesium), into the biologically active hormone T3 (triiodothyronine), which is transported throughout the body via the bloodstream helping to regulate many vital functions in the body, including metabolism, body temperature, brain function, digestion, heart function and muscle control.

 

What vitamins are included for energy support?

Provides a range of B vitamins such as niacin, riboflavin and vitamin B6 which all support energy-yielding metabolism. A key feature of poor thyroid function is increased tiredness and fatigue.
