Ultra Thyroid Support – Premium Support Formula for a Healthy Thyroid
It’s clear that there is a link between celiac disease (and NCGS) and thyroid dysfunction, and that a gluten free diet can help manage thyroid conditions. However, there is another important link to discuss. That is that many of the nutritional deficiencies caused by gluten can impact the thyroid and its functions. Below are some common malabsorption-related deficiencies found in those with celiac disease and NCGS and how they may impact the thyroid:
- Iodine: Iodine is a key player in thyroid hormone health and studies have shown that proper levels can support thyroid function. One study looked at pregnant women in particular, who, like those with celiac disease, are commonly deficient. The study found that a daily supplement containing 150 μg of iodine improved the iodine status from mild iodine deficiency to iodine sufficiency, which had a positive impact on thyroid hormone levels.
- Selenium: Selenium has been implicated in the development of autoimmune thyroiditis and many studies have shown that selenium supplementation may decrease thyroid antibodies in patients with autoimmune thyroiditis.
- Protein – most Americans eat too many carbohydrates and not enough protein. Protein is absolutely necessary to form the backbone of thyroid hormone (particularly the amino acid in protein called tyrosine). Protein is also responsible for carrying thyroid hormone through the bloodstream to your tissues.
- Magnesium – this mineral helps your body make TSH (the hormone made in your brain that tells your thyroid gland to make T4).
For our thyroid to work properly, our brain has to stimulate our pituitary gland to produce thyroid stimulating hormones.
This premium gluten free, glandular formula is rich in nutrients that support the proper regulation of thyroid hormone secretion, and it offers key nutrients and strong antioxidants such as Copper, Manganese, and Superoxide Dismutase that help protect the thyroid.
Suggested Dose: Take 2-4 tabsules per day in divided doses or as otherwise directed by a healthcare professional.
