This holistic blend of Food-Grown® vitamins, minerals, amino acids and botanicals has been expertly formulated to comprehensively address thyroid health. Going beyond the obvious co-factors required for thyroid hormone conversion, this formula addresses areas of health that support the thyroid such as energy, the adrenal glands, nervous system and immune system. Selenium has been included to support normal thyroid function and thyroid hormone conversion. According to the latest statistics, selenium levels are officially low in UK soil. Our Food-Grown® Selenium has been shown to be 22% better absorbed and retained than many other forms of the mineral. Our Thyroid Connect also provides Phenylalanine, a key amino acid that is converted into Tyrosine as well as Iodine, a crucial mineral in the normal production of the thyroid hormones T4 and T3. Our Food-Grown® Iodine provides food forms of iodine, iodate and iodide. It is the iodide form of iodine that is used to form the intermediary hormones (MIT and DIT) that form T4 and T3. Magnesium and other nutrients have been included to support healthy energy production and the health of the nervous system. Botanicals such as Holy Basil and Olive Leaf have been included to support weathering life's challenges as this may also have an impact on the health of hormonal system as a whole. As women go through pregnancy, breastfeeding and the menopause the thyroid can 'shift' its normal balance so it is advisable to consult a professional if you are experiencing symptoms associated with thyroid issues.
