The thyroid produces several hormones, of which two are key: triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4). These hormones help oxygen get into cells, and regulate metabolism. The hypothalamus in the brain releases Thyrotropin-releasing Hormone (TRH) which tells the pituitary gland to release Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH). The circulating TSH in your bloodstream is what tells the thyroid to make thyroid hormones and release them into your bloodstream. This feedback loop is affected by emotions, stress nutritional status and the state of health of the entire nervous and endocrine system.
Diminished thyroid activity, or hypothyroidism, decreases metabolic rate, makes it impossible to assimilate food properly, depresses the activity of other glands in the body and ultimately adversely affects every cell and tissue in the body.
The following nutraceuticals will support the intricate thyroid function.
