Your thyroid, or thyroid gland, is one of the largest endocrine glands in your body, hence the importance of your thyroid health. It’s located in your neck below the thyroid cartilage. It’s responsible for how your body reacts to other hormones, makes proteins, and how your body uses energy, all via the production of thyroid hormones. These hormones, called triiodothyronine (also called T3), thyroxine (also called T4), and calcitonin.

How plants and minerals help support your thyroid
Your thyroid plays a part in almost every other system in your body. It is often called the master gland. All other bodily systems also affect your thyroid. As a result, symptoms of thyroid imbalance may begin when your thyroid gland is not producing enough hormones, or when there are imbalances in other body processes that interfere with your thyroid. Especially of importance is your adrenal health.
Depending on your unique requirements, specific plants and minerals may:
- Provide an increase in energy levels (fatigue and weight gain are the chief complaints we hear related to thyroid issues).
- Help maintain thyroid hormone regulation. Help support healthy thyroid cell metabolism.
- Provide support without requiring you to be on prescription medication for the remainder of your life.
Even if you are taking prescription medication for hypothyroidism (an underactive thyroid), obtaining additional support through plants and minerals may be an excellent option to help support your body. It may lead to a decrease in the amount of prescription medication you need. The thyroid gland relies on two key nutrients to help in the balance and they are iodine, and selenium.
Igjen er det spesiellt en del mineraler som er i sentrum for helsen din!! Disse finnes i Simply Minerals.. Ved store problemer, er nok ekstra tilskudd av både Iodine og Selenium (jod og selen) på sin plass.
Helsevesenet i Norge gikk i juni ut og advarte folk mot for lite inntak av jod!! Dette har mye med skjoldbruskkjertelen å gjøre..
