That happens simply from normal supplements because their levels are unable to convert what they need and it becomes neurotoxic.
At the same time, they need what they could make it into! So, what we thought about ahead of time, and included pyridoxal-5-phosphate.
This also helps those with thyroid disease respond better to iron. They are less apt to become anemic or have problems with it.
This is a trace mineral that is sometimes considered in the list of those considered essential, but you might not always see it there.
It is essential, though, for thyroid hormone activity. There has been pretty strong data saying that lacking in molybdenum can render the liver unable to convert and utilize thyroid hormones in the periphery4.
There is also data showing that those lower in molybdenum are more apt to have histamine reactions. We can also see this as a problem for those with thyroid disease.
We also add in a special form of zinc, and a good amount of it.
This is done because placebo-controlled studies have shown that zinc, in the right types, can support T3 and T4 conversion, even if blood levels don’t change5.
That is why it is so important that zinc is provided in a form that is easy for the body to activate and convert.
Omega 3 Fats
These are critical. That’s because a lot of data has shown that omega-3 fats can be amongst the biggest drivers protecting the thyroid and cutting the risk of thyroid disease progression.
However, omega-3 fats can also be massive sources of iodine. So, we scour carefully and analyze our products for their iodine content.
That’s also why I can assure you that these omega-3 fats in question are safe because they don’t have excessive amounts of iodine.
There are many versions of omega-3 fats on the market, and many are great, but they don’t pass our standards of what we want for people with thyroid disease.
