Overview

Thyroid health is fast becoming a increasing health concern. Testing your thyroid co factors can give insight to your overall thyroid picture.

Iodine is the classic therapy for hypothyroidism as it is needed by the thyroid gland to synthesize thyroid hormones.

Selenium is another essential mineral needed for proper thyroid functioning. The thyroid gland contains more selenium than other body parts and during selenium deficiency, the body meets the selenium needs of the thyroid even before it sends selenium to the brain.

Amino acids such as tyrosine is a critical amino acid for the building block of all proteins in the body including hormones such as T3 and T4.
