Statistics indicate that millions of Americans suffer from sluggish thyroid function and that women are 6 times as likely as men to be affected by low thyroid, commonly undiagnosed. With low thyroid function, the body may not be producing enough thyroid hormones or may have difficulty converting them into the active form the body uses. Patient One Thyroid Maintenance provides a range of herbal and nutritional support for healthy thyroid function and hormone synthesis. Patient One Thyroid Maintenance is designed to ease symptoms associated with thyroid issues, including occasional stress, mood disruptions and mental fogginess, while fine-tuning low thyroid function for optimal well-being.
The resin of the mukul myrrh tree of India, guggul (Commiphora mukul) has long been used in Ayurvedic wellness practices, and is presented here as Gugulipid, a standardized and assayed extract supplying guggulsterone E and guggulsterone Z. These compounds promote healthy thyroid function by influencing enzymes that catalyze production of hormones triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4).
Another well-known botanical staple of Ayurvedic traditions, ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) acts as an adaptogen, supplying withanolides that help the body to optimally adjust to stressful situations and maintain energized cognitive clarity. Research suggests that ashwagandha may stimulate thyroidal function, reflected by increased serum T4 concentrations.
Rosemary supplies the compound rosmarinic acid, which promotes hormone production and optimizes B and T cell performance in the thyroid.
Iodine is an element essential to the ideal functioning of the thyroid. It is necessary for humans to synthesize thyroxin hormones T3 and T4. Studies have indicated that a deficiency of iodine is relatively common. Thyroid Maintenance supplies a balanced serving of kelp, a superior natural source of iodine.
Tyrosine is a key compound involved in the creation of neurotransmitters and the production and regulation of hormones in the thyroid, qualities that may enable the amino acid to promote a balanced, healthy and relaxed mood.
Zinc and Selenium:
Thyroid Maintenance supplies these important trace elements required for efficient thyroid hormone synthesis, activation and metabolism. Zinc and selenium are used by the liver and kidneys to convert T4 to the more active T3 hormone.
