HOW IT WORKS
The thyroid hormones regulate many body functions, including oxygen use, basal metabolic rate, cellular metabolism, growth and development, and body temperature. Thyroid support provides glandular extracts, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, enzymes and phytonutrients to support thyroid function and support a healthy metabolism.
WHY OUR THYROID SUPPORT?
Your thyroid gland needs iodine to make thyroxine, a hormone your body uses for several daily functions. Many people experience low-iodine thyroid issues. These can include low appetite, mood and weight changes, and more. Thyroid Support offers comprehensive, out-of-the-box nourishment for the thyroid gland, including l-tyrosine, vitamin B6 and kelp. Our kelp, is wild-harvested in the North Atlantic Ocean by skilled reapers who use small paddleboats and special rakes to sustainably harvest the kelp and protect its natural habitat.
THE STORY BEHIND THYROID SUPPORT
In 1934, Hungarian doctor Paul György discovered a substance that seemed to get rid of severe lesions in rats with a highly controlled diet. He named it Vitamin B6. In 1938, Samuel Lepkovsky was able to isolate this same substance from rice bran. Its chemical name, 3-hydroxy-4,5-dihydroxy-methyl-2-methyl-pyridine didn’t catch on. Go figure. But the next year, György suggested calling it pyridoxine. Most of us call it vitamin B6! German chemist Justus von Liebig discovered the amino acid tyrosine in 1846. He was working with casein in cheese, and tyrosine is named for the Greek word tyros, or cheese. About 40 years later, researchers determined its molecular structure and figured out how to make it in the lab. Both the ancient Greeks and Romans ate kelp as a food source. And according to records in China, people have been eating various types of kelp there for more than 2,000 years!
