Thyroplex is a naturopathic practitioner product specifically aimed at assisting normal healthy production of thyroid hormoes.
Thyroplex contains nutrients and herbs to support liver function and detoxification – this is important, as the liver is essential in the metabolism and transport of thyroid hormone.
- Zinc – which supports both thyroid hormone production and peripheral conversion of T4 to T3
- Selenium – used for an enzyme, (iodothyronine deiodinases) which converts T4 to T3 thus regulating thyroid hormone metabolism.
- Vitamin A and E also influence peripheral metabolism (peripheral metabolism – is the conversion of T4 into the active T3 by an enzyme called 5’deidinase). This conversion predominately occurs in the liver and thyroid.
- The addition of Bupleurum falcatum supports the liver by acting as a hepatoprotective and alongside taurine, cysteine and methionine supports the liver.
The advantage of Thyroplex is it contains no added gluten, shellfish, soy protein, wheat or yeast and is vegan friendly.
