Support Metabolism with Thyroid & Adrenal Glands Health

Optimal thyroid function encourages healthy energy levels, motivation, metabolism, healthy weight management and concentration. The adrenal glands, located on top of both kidneys, produce hormones that maintain healthy stress response, already healthy blood pressure levels, immunity, vitality and more.

Thyroid / Adrenal Information & Research

Are there nutrients to support thyroid health?

Certain nutrients, such as tyrosine and iodine, are necessary ingredients for supporting healthy thyroid hormone synthesis. Other botanical extracts can help support a healthy thyroid as well. For instance, the ashwagandha herb can help maintain healthy thyroid function. And one clinical study found that Korean ginseng can promote healthy levels of the inactive, thyroid hormone–inhibiting reverse T3 (rT3) and supporting healthy T3 and T4 levels.

Why does iodine support thyroid health?

Iodine is a trace element that is essential for supporting your thyroid health. Its primary role is in the creation of the thyroid hormones triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4). Iodine is available in certain foods, including iodized table salt. But if you’re not getting enough through your diet, an iodine supplement can help maintain healthy levels.

What is cortisol?

Cortisol, produced in a part of the adrenal gland, is one of our body’s primary stress hormones. Stress is a normal part of life, but it is essential to maintain healthy cortisol levels to support a healthy stress response. Adequate sleep, good nutrition, exercise and meditation are great ways to promote a healthy stress response. Specific nutrients from magnolia, phellodendron, lychee fruit and green tea extracts can also help you maintain a healthy cortisol balance.
