What Vitamins Are Good For Thyroid Problems?
Our vitamins, minerals, and herbs are important components of our thyroid supporting health method. Importantly when you increase your thyroid function with thyroid replacement therapy either a thyroid medication or one of our natural thyroid desiccated thyroid supplements, you will often experience vitamin and mineral deficiencies because your body needs more nutrients when the metabolic rate is higher, as your cells are running faster.
Biotin, vitamin B6, B5, selenium, and copper are extremely important for good thyroid function and hormonal balance in general, and these nutrients are among the vitamins and minerals which most often become deficient when starting on thyroid replacement therapy.
The liver is a crucial organ when it comes to good thyroid function and hormonal balance. The liver takes care of most of the activation of the thyroid hormone from the inactive storage hormone T4 to the active thyroid hormone T3, which is the hormone that controls cellular energy production. The liver also detoxifies the body from endotoxins from the intestine and it excretes excess estrogen. A sluggish liver leads to low thyroid function and estrogen dominance.
The liver needs large amounts of protein in addition to B-vitamins to function optimally. Therefore a B-complex product as well as certain protein powders can be good supplements to keep your liver and thus thyroid function up. Selenium is also important for the activation of the thyroid hormone from its inactive form (T4) to the active T3.
In addition vitamins A, D and K are extremely protective and support both immune function, hormonal function, and thyroid function. Importantly vitamin A needs to be dosed according to your thyroid function.
