Thyroid Health Products

Arguably one of the most important organs in the body, the thyroid gland plays a vital role in the overall health of a person, controlling ones’ metabolism and impacting many other body systems. For many people, it needs extra support. There are a wide variety of products that may support the healthy functioning of the thyroid gland, including kelp and iodine, tyrosine and other nutrients.

Thyroid Health Info

The thyroid gland is located in the throat, and controls the body’s metabolic rate. It uses various nutrients, primarily iodine, to produce thyroid hormone, and interacts with the other organs of the endocrine system. When it is under or over-active, a person can experience effects throughout the body, from fatigue and weight gain to poor digestive health, hormone health, neurological symptoms, poor temperature control, anxiety and more.

Unfortunately, thyroid disorders - primarily hypothyroidism, but also hyperthyroidism and Hashimoto’s disease – are a major problem in New Zealand, with around 70,000 people prescribed medication for thyroid problems in 2008 and 10% of the population affected at some point in their lives.

Low dietary intake of iodine, fluoridated water, and other endocrine and immune system disorders may play a role in the onset of thyroid disease, and as such, supporting nutrition may assist in the prevention of thyroid problems.

  • Beneficial additional supplement

    star

    In my opinion most people are likely to be iodine deficient. Iodine is no longer added to salt. Our soils and foods other than sea foods are generally deficient, but more importantly other chemical halides such as chlorine and flourine in our water supplies compete with iodine for uptake by the thyroid gland. The prostate gland in males also has numerous iodine receptors. Although I have hypothyroidism (low thyroid function) as well as prostate problems, merely for the above reasons, maintaining higher levels of iodine intake may be beneficial for most people. Although I already supplement my iodine uptake with kelp, I have still found in my case that the dermal pathway provide for by this product is a beneficial additional means of iodine supplementation. Provided it is applied on different parts of the body, this product also has the additional benefit of indicating iodine load by way of the fade test. However it can cause irritation if applied on more sensitive skin, and this is something that perhaps women folk in particular, need to be more cautious about.
