Thyroid Balance by Celarity contains nutrients and herbs that support a healthy thyroid hormone biosynthesis. This specific combination of nutrients may guide the expression of thyroid hormone genes. With the inclusion of ashwagandha and guggul extract may aid in the conversation thyroxine and triiodothyronine (T4 and T3) and may support healthy blood lipid levels. For those struggling with hypothyroid or hyperthyroid, this supplement is designed to support and restore healthy thyroid function
Signs of Thyroid imbalance include but is not limited to:
Iodine: The two main iodine-containing hormones that the thyroid gland produces are thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). These hormones circulate throughout the bloodstream and work to regulate metabolism and growth in every living tissue and cell. 80% of the body’s iodine pool is contained in the thyroid gland. Iodine is specifically used as a substrate for the production of T4 and T3, healthy iodine levels are vital for normal and healthy thyroid function and thyroid hormone biosynthesis. Thyroid Balance provides 75 mcg of iodine from Atlantic kelp in each serving.
Selenium:Selenium, an essential trace mineral, plays a key role in the conversion of T4 to the more active T3 form. It acts as a cofactor for enzymes that facilitate this conversion, promoting optimal thyroid hormone balance. The relationship between selenium and iodine has become an area of interest and research. In an animal study, it was shown that high iodine levels paired with the presence of low selenium levels may result in thyroid tissue damage due to the low thyroidal glutathione peroxidase activity.
Zinc and Vitamins A and D: Research has shown that low intake levels of zinc, Vitamin A and D may impact thyroid hormone metabolism, circulating thyroid hormone concentrations, and the thyroid response to iodine prophylaxis. Zinc, another essential mineral, is involved in thyroid hormone production and regulation. It aids in the synthesis of thyroid hormones and helps maintain the integrity of the thyroid gland. Vitamins A and D could increase the transcriptional actions of the thyroid hormone genes. These genes affect growth, differentiation, metabolic homeostasis, and development.
Vitamin E and Rosemary: Research supports the concept of reducing oxidative stress to protect thyroid cell health and maintain normal thyroid cell growth. Vitamin E and rosemary are potent antioxidants, shielding the thyroid gland from oxidative stress. Rosemary, known for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, may contribute to thyroid health by reducing oxidative stress and inflammation in the gland. Vitamin E complements these actions by protecting thyroid cells from damage.
Due to the fact that active oxygen radicals can negatively affect the activity of a specific enzyme involved in the conversion of T4 and T3. Furthermore, reducing oxidative stress may have a two-fold application in thyroid health. The antioxidant components in Thyroid Balance may help protect thyroid cells and also support the conversion of T4 to T3 by reducing free radicals.
Guggulsterones and Ashwagandha:Guggulsterones, derived from the Commiphora mukul tree, have been traditionally used in Ayurvedic medicine to support thyroid function. Research suggests that guggulsterones may influence the conversion of T4 to T3 and exhibit anti-inflammatory effects. Ashwagandha, an adaptogenic herb, is gaining recognition for its potential role in supporting thyroid function. Studies indicate that ashwagandha may enhance thyroid function by balancing hormone levels and reducing stress-related impacts on the thyroid.
